Materials science woven labels
Materials and colors are available for the production of woven labels, which harmonize perfectly with all other components of the clothing.
For woven labels in the following qualities:
- shot Satin
- High definition
... the following basic qualities are available, which differ in terms of density and the material used:
Standard material: polyester yarn
on request, processing of metal threads and mixed fabrics (up to 30% cotton)
Of course, other special materials are also available on request.
Material science print labels
Printing labels can be made from different materials. The following materials are available for printing labels:
Chemical fibers made of polyamides, especially for the first fully synthetic fiber, are called nylon, and a polyamide fiber (PA66) made from hexamethylene diamine and adipic acid is called nylon.
The nylon fiber is characterized by high tensile strength and insensitivity to moisture and temperature fluctuations.
The properties and advantages of nylon are characterized as follows:
Elasticity and durability are just two of the many advantages of nylon. Properties that this material also has are the stability and elasticity of the fibers.
In addition, nylon can absorb energy better than other textiles. Even with suddenly occurring heavy loads, nylon proves to be very tear-resistant.
Despite everything, nylon is very sensitive to moisture or even moisture. Nylon is easy to machine, for example sawing, drilling, milling and turning.
But nylon is not suitable for gluing. Most often, nylon is bonded together using a chemical compound.
Polyesters are polymers with ester functions in their main chain. Although polyester occurs naturally, today polyester is understood to mean a large family of synthetic polymers (plastics), which include the widely used polycarbonates and, above all, the technically important, thermoplastic polyethylene terephthalate.
The properties of polyester are versatile. Polyester is easy to care for, dries quickly and wicks away moisture.
Polyester can also store the heat very well and is soft and kind to the skin. The fibers are fine and thin and therefore very light, but at the same time extremely hard-wearing. Polyester also has a high dimensional stability and is not prone to wrinkling. In addition, the plastic has high strength and flexibility, making it resistant and tear-resistant.
The cotton plants (Gossypium) or cotton (English, French coton) is a plant genus within the family of the mallow family (Malvaceae). There are approximately (20 to 51 species) in the tropics and subtropics. The properties and advantages of cotton are:
- very absorbent
- more tear-resistant when wet than dry
- skin-friendly and without scratching
- low allergy potential
- very heat resistant
- durable and easy to care for
- hard-wearing and stretchy
- Cotton is bleached in white and in natural colors
Satin only describes the type of binding, but not the material itself. Depending on the type of fiber, the fabric can have a lighter or stronger sheen, and can be fluidly thin or stiff.
The textile can be made of silk, cotton, viscose or polyester. The special satin properties and advantages are:
- nice shiny
- looks classy
- easy care
Hard-wearing digital print labels: We only use satin for our digital print labels, since the quality of the digital print can only be reliably recognized on satin. Since this print is on satin, the minimum purchase quantity is higher than with a normal print.
