What is air covered spandex yarn?

November 29,2023

Air covered spandex yarn  is a new type of fiber product that has excellent elasticity and breathability. It is widely used in leisure sports, fitness, outdoor activities, and daily life. This article will introduce the characteristics, production process, application areas, and future development trends of air covered spandex yarn.

Characteristics of air covered spandex yarn

High elasticity: The main component of air covered spandex yarn is spandex, which has excellent elasticity. It can provide support and stability while maintaining high comfort. The air in the yarn is sealed next to the spandex fiber, forming an airbag-like structure, which further increases the elasticity and softness of the yarn.

Good breathability: The airbag structure in the air covered spandex yarn can not only increase the elasticity but also the breathability of the yarn. The gas in the airbag can provide insulation and effectively remove sweat and moisture, keeping people dry and comfortable during exercise.

Wear resistance: Air covered spandex yarn has excellent wear resistance due to the use of high-strength spandex fibers as the main component. It is not prone to pilling or breakage during long-term use, which can effectively improve the durability and stability of the material.

Rich colors: Air covered spandex yarn can be dyed with special dyeing techniques to present a wide range of colors and patterns, meeting people's demands for fashion and diversity.

Production process

The production process of air covered spandex yarn is relatively complex and mainly includes the following steps:

Preparation of spandex fiber: Spandex fiber is the main component of air covered spandex yarn, and its preparation is the core of the entire production process. There are two methods for preparing spandex fiber: wet method and dry method. The wet method dissolves spandex polymer in a chemical solvent and forms spandex fiber by spinning; the dry method melts the spandex polymer by high temperature and pressure and forms spandex fiber by melt spinning.

Preparation of air covered yarn: After the spandex fiber is prepared, it needs to be covered with an airbag. There are mainly two methods for preparing air covered spandex yarn: single-step method and composite method. The single-step method is to simultaneously feed spandex fiber and air fiber into a spinning machine to form air covered spandex yarn; the composite method is to prepare spandex fiber and air fiber separately and then combine them through composite technology.

Dyeing and finishing: After the preparation of air covered spandex yarn, it also needs to be dyed and finished. Dyeing mainly includes pre-treatment, dyeing, and post-dyeing finishing; finishing is to organize the dyed yarn according to specifications to give it a certain elasticity, softness, and breathability.

Application areas

Air covered spandex yarn has a wide range of application areas, mainly including the following aspects:

Leisure sports clothing: Air covered spandex yarn has good elasticity and breathability, making it suitable for use as leisure sports clothing materials. For example, running pants, yoga pants, fitness clothes, etc., can be made of air covered spandex yarn to provide more comfortable experience during exercise.

Outdoor clothing: Air covered spandex yarn also has good wear resistance and insulation, making it suitable for use as outdoor clothing materials. For example, hiking shoes, climbing clothes, tents, etc., can be made of air covered spandex yarn to improve the comfort and safety of wearers.

Underwear, socks, etc.: Due to the excellent elasticity, softness, breathability, and antibacterial properties of air covered spandex yarn, it is also suitable for use as underwear, socks, and other materials. These products not only meet people's daily needs but also protect their skin and health effectively.

Home textiles: Air covered spandex yarn can also be used in the production of home textiles, such as bedding and sofa covers. These products not only have high elasticity and comfort but also improve the beauty and comfort of the entire home environment.

Future development trends

With the increasing demand for health and comfort, air covered spandex yarn, as a new type of fiber material, has broad application areas and market prospects. In the future, the development direction of air covered spandex yarn mainly includes the following aspects:

Environmental protection: With the popularization of the "green manufacturing" concept and the enhancement of environmental awareness, air covered spandex yarn will pay more attention to environmental protection and sustainability in the future. For example, using renewable or degradable raw materials, optimizing production processes, reducing energy consumption and waste emissions, etc., will become an important direction for the future development of air covered spandex yarn.

Multifunctionality: Future air covered spandex yarn will pay more attention to multifunctionality, meeting people's demands not only for elasticity, comfort, and breathability but also for more functions, such as antibacterial, UV-resistant, moisture-regulating, etc. This can better meet people's diverse demands for materials.

Intelligence: Future air covered spandex yarn will pay more attention to intelligence, realizing intelligent interaction and adaptive regulation with the outside world by adding sensors, control systems, and other components. This can better meet people's demands for intelligent products.
