The proportion of imported chemical fiber textiles and clothing in the United States has steadily increased

In 2015, the net import of textiles and clothing to cotton consumption in the United States increased for the third consecutive year, reaching 15.7 billion pounds, an increase of 8.27% from 14.5 billion pounds in 2014, setting a new historical high.

The net imports of textiles and clothing in the United States mainly consist of cotton and chemical fibers, with a small proportion of nylon, wool, and silk. With the increase in the import volume of chemical fiber clothing in recent years, the proportion of cotton clothing imports has continued to decline.

In 2015, cotton textiles and clothing accounted for 44% of US textile and clothing imports, while the proportion of chemical fibers increased to nearly 49%. In 2007, the proportion of cotton textiles and clothing was 56%, while chemical fiber accounted for only 37%.

We warmly welcome domestic and foreign customers to come for cooperation and trade negotiations.

What are the benefits of nylon reflected in?

Polyamide, also known as nylon silk, is mainly used for synthetic fibers. Its most prominent advantage is that its wear resistance is higher than all other fibers, 10 times higher than cotton and 20 times higher than wool. Adding some polyamide fibers to blended fabrics can greatly improve their wear resistance; When stretched to 3-6%, the elastic recovery rate can reach 100%; Can withstand tens of thousands of twists and turns without breaking.

Don't believe it! Look!! The effect of using nylon silk fabric is really different~

Nylon can maintain the bending deformation formed during heating. Its long filaments can be made into elastic filaments, while its short filaments can be blended with cotton and acrylic fibers to improve their strength and elasticity. In addition to being used in underwear and decorations, it is also widely used in industrial fields such as cord threads, transmission belts, hoses, ropes, fishing nets, tires, parachutes, etc. Its wear resistance is 10 times that of cotton fiber, 10 times that of dry viscose fiber, and 140 times that of wet fiber, making it extremely durable.

It's worth taking a look at the physical and chemical properties of nylon twisted yarn!

Nylon is the trade name for polyamide fibers, also known as nylon. The focused state structure of nylon is closely related to the stretching and heat treatment during the spinning process. Nylon twisted yarn is mainly made of long fibers, and there are also a small amount of nylon short fibers. Nylon twisted yarn is suitable for knitting and weaving, covering all fields of textiles.

How does the nylon industry shoulder the burden of fashion

China is a major producer of nylon civilian fibers, and the future development space is still very broad. However, compared to its position as a major producer of nylon, China's nylon industry still urgently needs to enhance its strength in areas such as product application development, brand expansion, and cultural construction. The era of nylon industry expansion relying on scale and quantity has come to an end, and changes in labor and other related factors have led the industry into a new era that requires changes in development methods, structural adjustments, and transformation and upgrading. It needs to rely on technology, culture, brand, and innovation to drive the overall upgrading of the industrial chain value.

Chemical fiber industry: This year's "Golden Nine" has not risen as much as in previous years

In July and August of this year, polyester filament manufacturers generally gained a lot. Due to tight supply, FDY products have a high profit level per ton. DTY and POY products have relatively weak returns. DTY products benefit from the lag in price changes, and their profit level decreases slowly during the period of POY price decline. Although POY began to turn losses into profits in early July, it fell to the edge of profit and loss in mid to late September.
