Performance you can count on
100% Organic Cotton construction
- 1. Effect of Acids : Unaffected by weak acids. On halogenation could be sensitive to minerals and organic acids.
- 2. Effect of Alkalis : Resistant to alkali.
- 3. Effect of heat : Negligible , but prolonged exposure to sunlight causes yellowing and strengh loss.
- 4. Organic Solvents : Generally unaffected by most organic solvents. Contamination with iron during bleach can result in strength loss.
Effect of UV:
|Exposure to Sunlight||Gradual loss of strength and tendency to yellowing.|
|Mildew Resistance||Weak unless treated with mildew resistant finish.|
|Abrasion Resistance||Low in comparison to polyester and nylon.|
|Tenacity||Lower than synthetic yams.|
|Elongation||3 to 6 %. Good needle loop formation.|
|Shrinkage||Generally less than 4%.|
As fibre constituents are outside our control therefore , it is recommended that trial garments are manufactured, dyed, finished before bulk production
