The sudden COVID-19 epidemic has given people a new understanding of life and health , in the “post-epidemic era”, more and more attention is paid to new technologies such as antibacterial and antiviral, and more attention is paid to textiles with such functions. Since the outbreak, textile companies have also been continuously strengthening the research and development of antibacterial and antiviral functional textiles to help consumers build an effective “protective barrier.”

From fiber to terminal application

●Antibacterial fiber

Xinxiang Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. organized scientific researchers to tackle key problems and successfully developed super-strong and efficient antibacterial regenerated cellulose fiber. The inspection report provided by the National Textile Products Quality Supervision and Inspection Center shows that the antibacterial fiber’s antibacterial rate against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans exceeds 99%, which is far higher than the antibacterial index of the national standard for antibacterial fibers. This fiber is made by adding green and highly efficient antibacterial materials to the spinning solution. The physical indicators of the fiber are the same as those of conventional fibers. The fabrics made with this fiber are resistant to washing and have long-lasting antibacterial effects.

●Antibacterial fabric

Nanshan Zhishang Company has been committed to the research and development of high-end men’s clothing fabrics. Not long ago, it successfully developed Fully antibacterial wool fabric can isolate a variety of viruses and bacteria. Wool fiber is a natural protein fiber and a leader among textile fibers. (NASA) In a study published by NASA, wool stood out from many materials due to its natural high breathability, anti-odor resistance, flame retardancy and natural temperature regulation, and was selected as the most suitable for astronauts in space. Close-fitting wear�dimensional. This Nanshan Healthcare antibacterial wool fabric is woven using high-tech wool yarn processing technology. In addition to ensuring the unique advantages of wool fabric products, this fabric product can block a variety of bacteria, achieve AA-level protection through physical sterilization, and is safe for skin contact. Based on the concept of sustainability and green development, this fabric uses “green” bio-environmentally friendly antibacterial technology and is highly washable. Clothes made of it can still achieve 70%~90% durability after being washed more than 20 times. Highly effective antibacterial ability.

High-end men’s fabrics developed by Nanshan Zhishang

Shandong Ruyi Woolen Garment Group actively researched new products in the face of the epidemic and launched a series of antibacterial protection products, including antibacterial and antibacterial fabrics, and antiviral suits, among which silver ions and graphene antibacterial protection Virus series products have achieved customer sampling and mass production.

●Antibacterial children’s clothing

MarColor, a well-known domestic children’s clothing brand (MarColor), uses EcoCos® Antaibe antibacterial fiber to launch a series of children’s clothing with antibacterial functions. This cooperation is a new application of antibacterial fiber in the field of children’s clothing, helping children’s clothing move towards a more fashionable, environmentally friendly and safer direction. Through injection spinning technology, EcoCosy® active antibacterial substances are evenly dispersed on the surface and inside of the fiber to achieve an antibacterial effect by slowing down the survival rate of bacteria and fungi on the surface of textiles. This series of products not only ensures wearing comfort, but also has good antibacterial effect after washing. After strict professional testing, it still maintains high antibacterial effect after being washed 50 times.

●Antibacterial home textile products

Affected by the epidemic, people are paying more and more attention to the impact of daily consumer products on health. Products with antibacterial and antibacterial effects will become a long-term focus of consumers. Towels and other textiles are commonly used in daily life, and their health and safety have attracted more and more attention.

Vosges towel

Safety and Health Vosges Home Textiles has always been one of the hard product indicators that Vosges Home Textiles pays attention to. Before the epidemic, many products of Vosges Home Textiles used antibacterial fabrics. Some even added nano-silver antibacterial additives to the surface of the product fabric fibers, so that they can effectively inhibit many diseases. Various pathogens, such as Escherichia coli, Candida albicans and Staphylococcus aureus, have been tested by third-party professionals and the effective antibacterial rate can reach up to 99%. LIFECO, a brand owned by Vosges, takes antibacterial as its theme and specializes in bamboo fiber antibacterial towels. Towels are mainly made of Tianzhu fiber and bamboo-cotton blended products, which have natural antibacterial effects and can effectively inhibit E. coli, etc., with an antibacterial rate of more than 90%. After the outbreak, the company strengthened its layout of healthy antibacterial product lines and launched more products such as antibacterial latex pillows, antibacterial kits and more.

Antibacterial textile classification

Why are antibacterial textiles Can it be antibacterial or bacteriostatic? This starts with the classification of textiles in this category. At present, antibacterial fibers can be roughly divided into two categories: natural antibacterial fibers and artificial antibacterial fibers. That is to say, some textiles have their own antibacterial functions, while other textiles are artificially endowed with antibacterial and antibacterial functions.

●Natural antibacterial fiber

Some natural fibers themselves have antibacterial functions, have strong antibacterial effects and have linear macromolecular structures. Common ones include bamboo fiber and hemp fiber. , chitin and chitosan fiber, seaweed fiber, etc.

Bamboo fiber

bamboo Fiber towel

Bamboo fiber can be divided into bamboo original fiber and bamboo pulp fiber. Bamboo raw fiber is made by using physical methods, using the leachate of pure natural substances, and removing lignin and impurities through multiple processes such as soaking, boiling, and softening;Bamboo pulp fiber is made using chemical methods, alkaline hydrolysis and segmented fine bleaching processes. The antibacterial property of bamboo fiber is due to the natural antibacterial ingredient “bamboo quinone” contained in the fiber. Most of the bacteria in life are negative, and the quinones in bamboo fibers are positive. When they meet, they will create a conflict between yin and yang, and quinones can also destroy the cell walls of bacteria, weakening their ability to survive, thereby reducing the number of bacteria. quantity.

China is The first country to study bamboo fiber, Hebei Jigao Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Jilin Chemical Fiber Group, is the founder of bamboo pulp fiber, and its registered trademark is “Tianzhu”. During the epidemic, Jilin Chemical Fiber Group teamed up with textile companies downstream of the Tianzhu Alliance industrial chain to jointly develop and produce a new type of protective mask. The filter core layer is composed of non-woven fabrics and melt-blown fabrics, and the protective layer is made of bamboo fiber with natural antibacterial properties. It can prevent bacteria, smog, car exhaust, dust, etc.

hemp fiber

Hemp fibers such as ramie, hemp, hemp, flax, apocynum, etc. all have natural antibacterial, antibacterial and deodorizing functions. The antibacterial and antibacterial effects of hemp fiber are mainly through two methods: one is the unique fiber cavity structure, and the other is the antibacterial chemical components in the fiber.

Hemp fiber contains some natural substances such as cannabidiol, cannabidiol, tetrahydrocannabinol, cannabidiol acid, etc. These substances have obvious effects on a variety of bacteria. Killing and inhibiting effects. Therefore, textiles made from hemp fiber have the functions of moisture absorption, quick drying, mildew resistance, and antibacterial properties. In recent years, with the industrialization of hemp, many domestic companies have launched their own products. Hemp textiles. Among them, Youngor Group has launched the “Hanhem Family” brand of high-end fashion; Vosges Group, Jialiya and other companies have developed and produced hemp towels, bedding, decorative fabrics and other series using hemp fiber blended yarn. Home textiles and household products; Langsha Group has developed a series of hemp socks; Li Ning, Pathfinder and others have developed a series of hemp sports and outdoor clothing and footwear products.

Huafang Industrial Hemp Fabric

Industrial hemp has a three-dimensional microporous structure. It has a large specific surface area, which can inhibit the survival of anaerobic bacteria. It also contains a large amount of phenolic substances, which can effectively kill some bacteria and molds. Huafang Co., Ltd. has developed a series of antibacterial fabrics based on consumer needs in different scenarios, using 100% industrial hemp or a mixture of industrial hemp and various fibers. For example, using warp and weft colored yarns and ply yarns, and matching them with dobby weave, you can get fabrics with double-sided effects. The fabric has strong three-dimensional effect, rich layers, breathability and heat dissipation, and is suitable for making mats, blankets and other products.

Chitin and chitosan fiber

Chitin is A natural biopolymer, it is a positively charged alkaline polysaccharide rare in nature. It is widely found in the shells of arthropods, shrimps and crabs, shells and cartilage of shellfish and molluscs. Chitosan is produced by removing the N-acetyl group from chitin after heating under alkaline conditions. It is usually blended with other fibers. Most studies believe that the antibacterial property of chitosan mainly comes from the positively charged substituent amino groups on the molecular chain. Generally, bacterial cells are often negatively charged. The positively charged groups combine with bacterial proteins to modify them and cause the bacteria to flocculate and sediment, thereby inhibiting their ability to reproduce. Therefore, textile materials obtained by spinning chitosan fiber purely or blended with other fibers have excellent antibacterial properties.
