Polyamide is a fiber that, due to its characteristics, works well in sportswear. Especially those who want and emphasize quality.
POLYAMIDE AS SILK SUBSTITUTE
From the beginning, polyamide fibers, produced by appropriate processes, served as a slightly cheaper alternative to very expensive natural silk yarn. Polyamide fibers are distinguished by their exceptional softness and pleasant touch. Contact with the skin does not cause unpleasant rubbing, it is much more pleasant, softer, the only one among synthetic fibers that comes close (to the touch) to natural ones.
FLEXIBILITY AND ENDURANCE
One of the properties of polyamide is its extraordinary elasticity, flexibility and durability. Polyamide fibers can stretch up to 5 times their length and easily return to their original state without shrinking. Compared to other materials, clothes made of such fibers will therefore show where the elbows and knees are much later and retain their original shape for a long time. According to these characteristics, polyamide adapts to the shape of the body extremely well. Does not make wrinkle and crease.
BREATHABILITY and warmth
Clothes made of polyamide fibers are breathable. The skin breathes easily, and the feeling of breathability impresses even in warmer conditions and does not cause the body to overheat. It is also an excellent thermal insulator in cold conditions.
Compared to other synthetic fibers, polyamide is extremely favorable to additional processing and finishing. With various technologies and processes, the fiber can be further processed and enriched. Polyamide is considered one of the more "hygienic" materials and you will easily find it in healthcare. It is very resistant to bacteria, fungi, mold, microbes,...
COLORS, PATTERNS, UV
Due to the silky properties and texture, dyeing of polyamide fibers is easy. The color is durable and perfectly preserved. The disadvantage of polyamide is that it cannot withstand excessive colorful prints. In this case, it is better to use some other synthetic fiber as a base. If you leave it in the sun, it will fade much later than other synthetic fibers. It also provides adequate protection against harmful UV rays.
MOISTURE AND DRYING
Like other fabrics, polyamide also absorbs moisture perfectly, but unlike natural fibers, it dries extremely quickly. The feeling on the skin will therefore be pleasant and dry despite sweating.
Polyamides are very resistant to both "abrasion" and "chaffing".
Due to its extraordinary characteristics, polyamide was initially widely used in the military industry for the production of parachutes, camouflage nets, cables, ... later, polyamide fibers were also used to produce socks, women's and men's clothing, military and tourist equipment (tents), upholstery, interior textiles equipment, ... Today, polyamide is mainly used in the production of high-quality sports clothing, where such a fiber can easily show all its advantages and properties.
Clothes made of polyamide fibers are easy to maintain. They can be washed at temperatures up to 40°C (without aggressive detergents and bleaches). They do not wrinkle or crease. Stains are easy to remove, but make sure they are not greasy. It will be difficult to get rid of greasy stains from such clothes, and they cannot withstand dry cleaning. It is also not recommended to use dryers. This type of clothing dries extremely quickly due to its characteristics. However, if you accidentally put a pair of leggings or a T-shirt in the dryer, they will not change their shape, but we really don't recomend to do it again.
So if we repeat the main characteristics:
• excellent flexibility and durability
• extremely soft and pleasant in contact with the skin
• unique texture among synthetic fibers
• dries quickly
• excellent breathability
• excellent for thermal insulation
• favorable to processing and finishing
• hygienic and extremely resistant to mold, bacteria, microbes,...
• retains its original characteristics for a long time
• does not wrinkle, crease or shrink
• washable at low temperatures and easy to maintain
• resistant to stains (except greasy stains, which are very difficult to remove)
• slightly less resistant to high temperatures (do not iron, does not withstand chemical cleaning)
