What are the characteristics of solid canvas fabric?

- Apr 25, 2018-

Solid canvas fabric is a relatively heavy cotton fabric or linen fabric. In other words, the plain-color canvas fabric is usually made of hemp or cotton yarns of different densities of dense and compact plain cloth used for tents, camp beds, clothes, shoes and the like.


Judging from its composition, most plain canvas fabrics use plain weave, some are twill weave, and weft and weft yarns use multiple strands. This fabric can be divided into two categories: coarse canvas fabric and fine canvas fabric. The former can also be called canopy cloth, commonly used in the 58 (10 British) 4 to 7 strands of fabric, fabrics fast folding, with good water resistance, used for car transport and open storage warehouse cover and field tents .


The latter solid canvas fabric is mostly used for the production of labor insurance apparel and related products. After dyeing it can also be used to make shoes, travel bags, backpacks, etc. The warp and weft yarns of this type of fabric are generally 2 strands 58 to 6 strands 28 (10 strands/2 to 21 strands/6).


The main feature of solid canvas fabric is that they are relatively thick. In the past, these fabrics were mainly used to make tents, camp beds, clothes, and shoes. Named after its original use for sails. In the analysis of the fabric, the yarn count mainly refers to the thickness of the yarn, and the current industry is still the "imperial system", that is, a pound of cotton yarn, the length of 840 yards, the fineness of the yarn One. If a pound of yarn, its length is 10 × 840 yards, its fineness is 10.


In addition, the density of different plain canvas fabrics is also different. When calculating its density, the common unit is the metric meter, referring to the number of rows of latitude and longitude within 10cm. In fact, the size of the density directly affects the appearance, feel, thickness, strength, flex resistance, air permeability, abrasion resistance and thermal properties of plain canvas fabrics.
