Basic classification of antibacterial textiles
- Jun 08, 2018 -

Antibacterial textiles can be broadly divided into two categories, namely natural antibacterial textiles and artificial antibacterial textiles. The raw materials of natural antibacterial textiles mainly come from plant fibers that have both strong antibacterial properties and a linear macromolecular structure in nature, such as bamboo fibers and ramie fibers. Artificial antibacterial textiles artificially add antibacterial agents to textiles to impart antibacterial properties to textiles. At present, the common preparation process of antibacterial textiles is mainly divided into two major categories: melt spinning and finishing. Melt-spinning is the process of adding antibacterial agents into antibacterial masterbatches and adding common antibacterial masterbatch to the antibacterial fiber through blending, melting, spinning, and further processing into various types of textiles. The antibacterial properties of products processed through such methods are relatively durable; after finishing, the textiles are post-treated with antibacterial agents through padding, spraying, etc., and an antibacterial layer is coated on the surface of the textiles to impart antibacterial properties thereto. Antimicrobial textiles processed in this way can be distributed on the surface of the product, which is beneficial to the antibacterial performance of the product. It is especially suitable for the antibacterial processing of textiles made of natural fibers, but the antibacterial properties may gradually be lost along with the abrasion of the products. .
