What kind of fabric is good for sportswear

Update:17 Jun
Nowadays, sports are closely related to our healthy life, and sportswear is a must for our home life and outdoor. The fabric of sportswear has also begun to be valued by people.
Many people think that pure cotton clothing is the best because it absorbs sweat well and is more comfortable to wear. However, due to the very sweat-absorbing clothes such as pure cotton, the sweat released during exercise is more, and it is easy to remain on the clothes.
Since humans began to pay attention to sports, but at the same time, clothing fabrics have affected the normal performance of athletes, so people have begun to explore, develop, and research new fabrics to minimize the influence until it can be ignored, and continue to expand and make progress, nylon fibers, artificial polyester The emergence of high-molecular polymers has sounded the horn of formal change in clothing fabrics.
All kinds of professional sports fabrics, functional fabrics and technical fabrics are born to meet the needs of modern people's sports. Facts have proved that the use of chemical fibers to replace natural fibers in sportswear has gradually become the mainstream. At present, there are the following high-tech fibers in the field of sportswear:
(1) Polyamide nylon
It has far superior performance than early nylon, solves the shortcomings of poor air permeability and wear resistance, and can quickly absorb body sweat and volatilize it from its surface.
(2) Various functional fibers
This new type of fiber is lighter and softer than traditional chemical fibers.
(3) PTFE waterproof and temperature-permeable laminated fabric
This kind of fabric can breathe like human skin, export excess water vapor out of the body, and isolate the invasion of external rain and snow. The secret lies in as many as 7 billion micropores per square centimeter.
(4) Coolmax fiber
This fiber type is becoming a big selling point in the market. The cross-section of this fiber is a unique flat cross shape, forming a four-slot design, which can discharge sweat more quickly and volatilize. It is called a fiber with an advanced cooling system. It is worth mentioning that the Chinese Table Tennis Corps won the gold medal in Sydney, wearing clothes woven from Coolmax fibers.
(5) Silicone resin
Everyone is not unfamiliar with sportswear such as "shark skin swimsuit" and "fast skin", whose main body is made of silicone resin film.
