Cloth or clothing using polyurethane material

Hello everyone!

 This time, I would like to write what I think about fabrics and clothing using polyurethane materials.

 In recent years, unlike when polyurethane materials had just emerged, I suppose that the world's people have gained some degree of recognition, but on the other hand, it is still unknown.

 ◆ Polyurethane material

 Polyurethane is

 A rubber-like fiber that was developed in Germany around 1940 and has 5 to 10 times the elasticity.

 What is made using the rubber-like fiber is used in various clothing and products, such as sportswear and furniture, such as coats made of synthetic leather and stretch products with excellent elasticity.  Is polyurethane fiber.

 The features are that you can enjoy the skin-like texture, the product is lighter, it can be sold relatively cheaply, and the purchaser can get it at a lower price than genuine leather products.  Therefore, products using polyurethane, urethane resin,

 Manufactured in various forms.

 As clothing

 For example, for pants products,

 Polyurethane material is also elastic, so slim pants can be easily removed, so unlike heavy jeans, it is light and easy to move and comfortable to wear.

 In addition, stadium jumpers and riders are often used instead of genuine leather products, and can be worn lighter in weight than genuine leather.

 Even people who understand polyurethane can hardly understand the texture just by looking at it, and it is often difficult to understand it unless you actually touch it or bring it.

 ◆ Characteristics of polyurethane


 -Available relatively cheaply compared to genuine leather products

 ・ It has elasticity like rubber

 ・ Different from natural rubber

 ・ High product flexibility

 Polyurethane has many advantages compared to genuine leather products, but has a fatal weakness.

 ・ Very sensitive to rapid changes in temperature and humidity (especially weak in hot and humid Japan)

 In addition, it may be embrittled by chlorine, light, mold, etc.

 Polyurethane used for clothing usually lasts 2 to 3 years after being manufactured,

 It is only a guideline for 2 to 3 years, and some people have things that look the same even after 3 years or more, depending on the use environment and handling method ...
