Today, online shopping has touched every aspect of our lives, providing a wider range of choices and price choices, but there are still doubts about home decoration. Not knowing what factors to consider when purchasing can easily lead to problems. Therefore, we will introduce some issues that you need to pay attention to when choosing fabrics.
Wear resistance refers to the resistance to wear between fabrics or with other substances in the process of repeated friction. In the textile industry, the durability of fabrics is measured by the rub-count test. If the test index is higher, the friction resistance is higher, and the abrasion resistance of the fabric is stronger and more durable, but the numerical specifications measured by different test methods will be different.
Only fabrics that pass the abrasion resistance test can withstand the durability of use and bring a good experience to buyers.
In order to ensure that the fabric does not shrink or discolor after washing, the fabric is generally subjected to a wash test. In the process of measurement, it is measured from the dimensions of whether the fabric is easy to deform and easy to fade. Information such as the initial size of the fabric is recorded before the measurement, then the fabric is washed and measured again to determine if the fabric has changed.
If a certain fabric needs to be exposed to the sun frequently, such as outdoor cushions and awnings, it is especially important to use fabrics with a high level of UV protection. Because UV rays can damage the fabric's structure and cause it to fade. We can use the UV test method, expose the fabric to the sun for three consecutive months, evaluate the color change of the fabric, and grade it on a scale of 1-8, the higher the grade, the more resistant the fabric is to sunlight damage.
Of course, in addition to paying attention to the quality of the fabric itself, how to use the fabric correctly in different scenarios is also particularly important.
When in high-traffic areas, our fabrics need to be durable enough to do the job. If the fabric is used in a high-traffic area or a busy restaurant, it needs to have enough properties to meet people's needs.
When we are in the interior space, of course, the fabrics we choose must be delicate and comfortable enough to satisfy the warm atmosphere of the family. It can be used not only for the indoor decoration but also for the protection of outdoor appliances. The practicality of the fabric also brings us convenience when purchasing and using it.
