What is acetate?
Acetate is an ether or salt of acetic acid, its name comes from the Latin name of vinegar.
Also, acetate is called artificial materials,obtained from a solution of cellulose acetate in organic acids. Artificial materials, unlike synthetics, are natural raw materials that have undergone special treatment.
Acetate is used to replace wool in products that require a finer cloth and as an addition to the yarns of other materials to reduce crushing.
In addition, some types of material are used as electrical insulating material.
Pros and cons of acetate materials
According to their characteristics, acetate fabrics are largersimilar to silk, as they are more elastic, smooth and soft to the touch than viscose and less crumpled. They also have a more aesthetic look. Poorly absorb water and quickly dry, but with washing can be deformed.
In addition, acetate has a relatively lowStrength, which becomes even lower when the fabric gets wet. In addition, products from acetate fabrics quickly wear out and do not tolerate high temperatures. Because of what to wash and iron them follows at very low temperature. They are strongly electrified and become unusable upon contact even with weak alkalis.
Currently, various modifications are used to produce acetate fabrics, which make it possible to obtain a material with higher quality and strength.
