is a thermoplastic, silky material, first used commercially in a nylon-bristled toothbrush (1938), followed more famously by women stockings after being introduced as a fabric at the 1939 New York Worlds Fair. Bill Pittendreigh, DuPont, and other individuals and corporations worked diligently during the first few months of World War II to find a way to replace Asian silk and hemp with nylon in parachutes. By August 1945, manufactured fibers had taken a market share of 25%, at the expense of cotton.
Strong, tough and resilient synthetic fiber
Is poor against liquids, humidity
Spandex or elastane
is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It is strong, but less durable than its major non-synthetic competitor, natural latex. It is a polyurethane-polyurea copolymer that was invented in 1959 by chemists C. L. Sandquist and Joseph Shivers at DuPont Benger Laboratory in Waynesboro, Virginia. When first introduced, it revolutionized many areas of the clothing industry.
Rayon or viscose
it artificially cellulose natural fibers. Viscose fabrics pleasant to the body, breathable, suitable even for people with sensitive skin. The fabric does not heat when hot, is a gentle, soft, lightweight, antistatic. To give better retain their shape, often viscose fibers blended with cotton and polyester. Pure viscose is glossy and semi-translucent.
In its viscose properties it is similar to cotton, but more absorbent and therefore more hygienic fiber.
Viscose fabric is light and soft, it gives a luxurious appearance attire.
Pure viscose is glossy and semi-translucent.
Viscose fiber is not very strong and therefore require careful care, tend to stretch, stretch.
Viscose curls better than cotton.
Since the products of the viscose is wrinkly, that after drying it is necessary to equalize the product to regain its original look. Products from the rayon advised to chemically clean, because washing the fiber decreases.
