How to pick a microfiber cloth?
The invention of microfiber cloth
Microfiber cloth was invented by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto in 1970. It is called an artificial substitute for suede.
And the fabric is multifunctional: it can be used for fashion, interior decoration, automobile and other vehicle decoration, and industrial applications, such as protective fabrics for electronic devices.
About the characteristics of super fiber
Due to the small diameter of the superfine fiber, its bending stiffness is very small, the fiber feels particularly soft, and it has a strong cleaning function and waterproof and breathable effect.
Microfibers have many fine pores between the microfibers to form a capillary structure. If processed into towel-like fabrics, they will have high water absorption.
After washing the car, a large amount of residual water can be quickly wiped dry with a microfiber towel.
The higher the weight of the fabric, the better the quality and the more expensive the price; on the contrary, the lower the weight of the fabric, the lower the price, and the lower the quality.
The unit of gram weight is “grams per square meter” (g/m2), abbreviated as FAW. The gram weight of the fabric is generally the gram of the fabric weight in square meters, and the gram weight is an important technical indicator of the super fiber fabric.
In the automotive beauty industry, microfiber cloth is mainly divided into three types: long hair, short hair, and waffle.
Long hairs are mainly used for large-area water collection steps; short hairs are used for detailed processing and crystal plating wiping steps, and waffle is mainly used for glass cleaning and wiping.
Thanks to the microfiber fabric due to its small diameter, it is easy to get a very soft feel, but the softness of towels produced by different manufacturers is not the same, and the softer towels are less likely to leave scratches when wiping. It is recommended to use a softer towel.
There are satin stitching, laser seamless stitching, and other processes. Generally speaking, the stitching process that can hide the stitches can reduce the possibility of scratching the paint surface.
The better quality microfiber cloth is less likely to shed hair, and it is not easy to become stiff after several washings. This kind of microfiber cloth has longer durability.
Microfiber cloth is usually a special-shaped fiber, and the fineness of its filament is usually only one twentieth of that of ordinary polyester yarn.
In contrast, the microfiber cloth has greater contact with the surface to the area. And having a larger contact area gives the superfine fiber a better dust removal effect!
