Triacetate is a semi-synthetic fiber combining the merits of a plant-based material
made from natural pulp with the merits of synthetic fibers made from a chemical-based material.
The fiber’s product name is Soalon.
Made only by Mitsubishi Chemical, Soalon has gained an excellent reputation worldwide.
Balanced moisture absorption
It has a lower moisture absorption rate than cotton, which absorbs water well, but a higher moisture absorption rate than polyester, which hardly absorbs any water.This level of moisture absorption provides optimal wearing comfort.
Quick drying property (diffusibility-moisture retention ratio)
Soalon also has excellent moisture diffusibility due to random gaps in the fiber surface.
Heat and humidity are rapidly dissipated, removing vaporization heat.This is very different compared with cotton or polyester which tend to trap heat, so clothes always kept comfortable inside even when exercising.
Optical refractive index
Its refractive index is significantly lower than that of fibers typically used in clothing such as silk, polyester, etc.Its small refractive index produces a vibrant chromogenic quality.
