Yarn treatment: There are gloss, matt and semi-matt. Do you know their application scenarios?

January 05,2024

Yarn gloss and yarn mattsemi-matt are two treatments commonly used in the textile industry, and they have their own unique characteristics and advantages in different applications.

Glossy yarn is a specially treated yarn that can produce a soft glowing effect when illuminated by light.

The yarns often contain luminescent materials or coatings that add unique visual appeal and practicality to the textile. Glossy yarns are mainly used in special decoration, fashion clothing and night safety products, and play a role in outdoor sportswear, night safety signs, stage performance clothing and other fields. It can improve users' visibility and safety in dark light environments, while also adding fashion and artistic effects to products.

The preparation process of making yarn light can be achieved by adding luminescent particles or materials to the yarn.

These luminescent particles can be fluorescent pigments, fluorescent fibers or other luminescent materials, which will emit a weak luminous effect when illuminated by light, allowing the yarn to present a unique light effect in a dim environment. In addition, the light effect of the yarn can also be achieved through special yarn structure design, such as introducing reflective materials or utilizing the material characteristics of the yarn itself. This treatment method can make the yarn appear shiny when illuminated by light, not only functioning in dark light environments, but also showing a unique visual effect during the day.

In addition to special decoration, fashion clothing and night safety products, yarns with light can also be used in other fields. For example, it is widely used in outdoor sporting goods, traffic safety signs, home decoration and stage performances. In outdoor sports equipment, light yarns can provide athletes with better visibility and safety. For example, in sports such as bicycles, skateboards, and skating, clothing and accessories made of light yarns can help people be more easily seen. Others see that reducing safety hazards. In traffic safety signs, yarn with light can be used to make road guardrails, traffic signs, traffic warning signs, etc., which can enhance nighttime visibility and promote traffic safety. In home decoration, yarn with light can be used to make curtains, bedding, tablecloths, etc., adding to the home atmosphere and creating a romantic atmosphere. In stage performances, yarn with light can be used to make actor costumes and background lighting to increase stage effects and visual impact.

Unlike glossy yarns, matt and semi-matt yarns use special treatments to reduce the light transmittance of the yarn to achieve the effect of blocking or reducing the penetration of light. 

Matting yarn is usually used in textiles that need to block light, such as curtains, awnings, etc. They effectively block sunlight and create a more comfortable and private environment indoors. The preparation process of matt yarn includes chemical or physical treatment. Chemical treatment changes the optical properties of the yarn by adding special dyes or coating agents, thereby reducing the light transmittance of the yarn. Physical treatment is to change the fiber arrangement and gaps by stretching or processing the yarn to reduce the light transmittance. These treatments can not only improve the light-shielding properties of the yarn, but also give the yarn a soft and comfortable feel.

Semi-dull yarn has a certain light transmittance and light-shielding effect, which can reduce the light intensity while maintaining a certain light transmittance.

Semi-dull yarns are usually used in textiles that need to reduce light intensity while maintaining a certain light transmittance, such as curtains, lampshades, etc. Compared with matt yarn, semi-matt yarn can maintain the brightness of the room to a certain extent, while reducing the dazzling intensity of sunlight, creating a warm and comfortable environment indoors. The preparation process of semi-matt yarn is similar to that of matt yarn, and is achieved through special chemical treatment or physical treatment.

Matt and semi-matt yarns are also suitable for a variety of applications.

In home decoration such as curtains, awnings, lampshades and partitions, matt and semi-matt yarns can enhance privacy and create a warm and comfortable living environment while ensuring a certain degree of light transmittance. It is also widely used in medical care supplies, cultural artworks and stage performances. In medical care products, matt and semi-matt yarns can be used to make contact lenses, bedding, surgical gowns, etc., to provide patients with better comfort and protection. In cultural artworks, matt and semi-matt yarns can be used to make picture frames, photography backgrounds and museum display layouts, etc., to create good visual and display effects. In stage performances, matte and semi-matte yarns can be used to make actor costumes, props and stage backgrounds, presenting more realistic and shocking visual effects to the audience.

The key to choosing whether a yarn is matte, matt, or semi-matt is evaluation and selection based on specific application needs.

Luminous effect, light-blocking properties, durability and comfort against the skin are all important factors in yarn selection. When selecting yarn, you need to consider the usage scenarios and functional requirements of the textile. For example, in outdoor sportswear, light yarns can improve user visibility and safety; in home decoration, matt or semi-matt yarns can create a private and comfortable indoor environment. In addition, the quality and durability of the yarn need to be considered to ensure that the selected yarn meets relevant international standards to obtain satisfactory textile effects and enjoy a long-term use experience.

In short, matte, matt and semi-matt yarns are commonly used treatments in the textile industry, and they have their own unique characteristics and advantages in different applications. Glossy yarns can add visual appeal and practicality to textiles, while matt and semi-matt yarns can create private, comfortable indoor environments and provide light-blocking effects. When selecting yarns, factors such as luminous effect, light-blocking performance, durability and comfort need to be considered based on specific application needs.
