The representative of polylactic acid biodegradable materials
Polylactic acid(PLA) exhibits outstanding spinnability and fabrics made from it are safe, breathable, moisture wicking, fire-resistant and UV light resistant. Therefore, PLA fibers blended in underwear and home textile fabrics can transfer the moisture, not only bringing the dry feeling for the skin, but also making the fabrics stable physically and wrinkle-resistant so that it is a non-allergenic and comfortable material for skin.
PLA fibers have good hydroscopicity and quick-drying. With comparatively low density, and similar breaking tenacity (Po) and breaking elongation performance to polyester fibers, PLA fibers is suitable for making sports suit. Moreover, PLA fibers have relatively high initial module, so clothes made from it could be kept in stable size and shape with good elasticity and wrinkle-resistance.
