What is a Microfiber?
Microfiber is a synthetic fiber that is finer than 1/100th the diameter of a human hair. This extremely fine diameter provides over 100,000 fibers per square inch. Common types of microfibers are made from polyesters, polyamides and polypropylene. Microfiber is used in a broad variety of applications, including apparel, upholstery, linens, towels, and insulation, etc. Shape, size, and combinations of synthetic fibers are selected for specific characteristics; texture, durability, absorption, water repellency, electrodynamics, and filtering capabilities.
How Our Microfiber Towel Works:
One of the best characteristics of microfiber is superior moisture absorption, up to 7 times its weight in moisture. This is accomplished due the structure of the microfiber material and the strands themselves.
The structure of a quality microfiber material is created when the strands are split, creating a larger surface area and pores between the fibers. The split microfiber strands hold the moisture within the pores themselves, not directly on the strands as in other conventional materials. This also allows for the microfiber material to dry at a fraction of the time compared to other conventional materials.
There are many advantages to using microfiber. Microfiber is a durable material when cared for properly, can absorb 7 times its weight in moisture, dries quickly, and is hypoallergenic. Given the facts, microfiber is truly a great choice, evident by the broad range of distinct advantages and ever growing popularity.
What is Antimicrobial Microfiber?
The antimicrobial feature of our towels consists of a special process by which silver ion particles are imbedded into the microfiber material.
This process is conducted during the initial stages of the fabric’s production at the textile mill.
How Antimicrobial Microfiber Works:
Silver ion works to prevent the bacteria cells from forming structures essential for their survival on the microfiber material. Not only does this inhibit bacteria growth, but also prevents odor. This becomes critical for your personal hygiene for those infrequent times when you cannot properly wash your towel. The process to use silver for hygienic applications is not new technology. In fact, it has been around for many years and is used quite often for a variety of applications, from textiles to the medical industry as well as many others.
Personal hygiene is very important to us. While you can purchase any microfiber towel, we feel it is critical to have one that is treated with silver ion technology.
