How to distinguish between down and down cotton when processing down raw materials


Now it is more common to use down cotton as a coat in the processing of down raw materials, but because the knowledge of down and down cotton is not comprehensive, many people will confuse it with down when they hear it. So do you know how to distinguish down cotton from down?

1. Down manufacturers: the concept of down cotton and down.

Down: Long in the abdomen of geese and ducks, forming reed-like down, called feathers.

Since down is an animal protein fiber, the spherical fibers of down are densely covered with thousands of small triangular holes, which can shrink and expand with temperature changes to produce temperature regulation functions, absorb the flowing hot air emitted by the body, and isolate the cold air outside. intrusion. From the analysis of bulkiness, down is one level higher than insulation materials such as silk, cotton, and down cotton.

Down cotton: It is made of microfiber and down of different specifications through special technology.

Because the quality is similar to down, it is called down cotton, and it is mostly called silk cotton or hollow cotton. Good thermal insulation, not easy to deform, not through the silk. Its thermal insulation performance exceeds that of down with the same weight.

Down raw material processing manufacturers can be widely used in down cotton jackets, ski jackets, winter clothes, duvets, down cotton trousers, car seat cushions and other warm products.

There are two types of down cotton: one is carded and formed, which feels similar to Dupont cotton, also known as imitation goose down cotton; the other is unformed, similar to PP cotton, which feels close to down and is an ideal substitute for down.

2. Down manufacturers: the difference between down cotton and down

a. Down is a natural fiber, and down cotton (hollow cotton) is a chemical fiber.

Natural things are still necessary for health;

b. The warmth retention property of down jacket is better than that of down cotton.

c. The higher the down grade, the better the quality. In terms of price, the price of a real down jacket will be several times higher than that of a down jacket;

d. Purpose:

Down cotton: It can be widely used in warm products such as down jackets, ski jackets, and winter clothes.

Down: It is suitable for making high-grade winter clothing, logo clothing, high-grade quilts, bedding, etc.

3. Down manufacturers: Which is better, down cotton or down?

Since down is an animal protein fiber, its thermal insulation performance is higher than that of cotton (vegetable cellulose), and the down ball-shaped fiber is densely covered with thousands of triangular holes, which will shrink and expand as the temperature changes, resulting in a temperature difference adjustment function. It can absorb the hot air emitted by the human body and isolate the invasion of cold air from the outside.

Duck down is more common in the market. Down cotton is a kind of chemical fiber, that is, synthetic fiber. It is a cotton fiber product similar to feather.

It is made of microfibers of different specifications through a special process. Because the quality is similar to down, it is called down cotton. The so-called down cotton is actually hollow cotton, but it is not real cotton, but filled with hollow polyester.

Because the air is insulated, there is a certain warmth.
