High-density fabrics are not a new subject for home textile enterprises. In a general sense, the definition of high-density fabric is the cloth being woven with 50-yarn count or even higher, and density is over 200 threads per square inch.
Currently there are a lot of such fabrics and most use cotton fiber.
In recent years, enterprises have increased their efforts in technological reforms and product innovation. They integrate the conception of environment and function, expanding the market space successfully.
At present, among the newly developed products, combed cotton/micro fiber fabrics have good moisture absorption and sweating ejection function, which are suitable for production of sports fabrics. Cotton or bamboo fiber fabrics filter antimicrobial and smell, which are ecological fabrics.
In the process of new products development, enterprises pay more attention to the personality and differences of products. The application scope of new products is increasingly targeted and become a profitable growth point for enterprises.
High-density fabrics at this stage still belong to high-grade products. The industry could produce quality products with proper technology. But the main problem is the large consumption of yarn and low production efficiency, which cause high production costs. The highest cost is even over ten times of ordinary fabrics, resulting in the limited scope of consumption.
In a long period of time, the industry still needs to make efforts together with the whole supply chain in the development of high-density fabrics. They must reduce production costs, bring benefits to consumers and further expand the application scope of high-density fabrics.
