The properties of fabric made from
acrylic depends on the type of fiber used, how the materials is knitted or
finished. Some of the common properties are:
- Strength: The fiber has moderate
strength and is the weakest of all acrylic fibers. It has a good
- Elasticity: Acrylic has less
elasticity. The acrylic fiber does not sag and does not lose its shape.
- Resilience: The fiber has excellent
resilience. It does not wrinkle easily and does not lose its shape.
- Absorbency: The fiber has low
absorbency. This gives the fabric the quality to resist stains.
- Heat Conductivity: Acrylic is not a
very good conductor of heat. The warmth can however be increased by
blending it with other fibers.
