What is PLA fibers

    When it comes to eco-friendly fibers, PLA fiber is a topic of great interest. So, what is PLA fiber? PLA (Polylactic Acid) fiber is a synthetic fiber made from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugarcane. It is renowned for its biodegradable and environmentally friendly characteristics.
    PLA fiber plays a significant role in the textile industry. Its production process relies on natural resources, reducing the dependence on limited fossil fuels compared to traditional synthetic fibers. This makes PLA fiber a sustainable choice, contributing to the reduction of adverse environmental impacts.
    PLA fiber possesses several unique characteristics. Firstly, it exhibits good strength and durability, capable of withstanding daily use and wear. Secondly, PLA fiber has a low shrinkage rate, maintaining shape and dimensional stability. Additionally, PLA fiber offers excellent moisture absorption properties, making it a desirable option for quick-drying and sweat-wicking applications. Moreover, the soft and comfortable texture of PLA fiber makes it ideal for crafting cozy clothing and bedding products.
Polylactic acid fiber is a synthetic fiber that is derived from renewable resources and easily degradable in the natural environment. If PLA fiber is buried together with other organic waste, it can decompose within a few months, completely breaking down into CO2 and H2O. When burned, it does not release toxic gases or cause pollution. If it enters the soil, wastewater, rivers, or oceans, it can also fully decompose into CO2 and water within 3-6 months through the action of bacteria and other microorganisms. It is a sustainable and eco-friendly fiber.
If you are interested in PLA fibers and would like to learn more about this fiber, you can visit the BMC website.
BMC® is the largest manufacturer of polylactic acid (PLA) fiber materials in China, specializing in PLA fiber, tow, tea bags, yarn, filament, fabrics, and knitted products. We possess patented technologies. Polylactic acid fiber is produced from starch-containing agricultural products such as corn, wheat, and straw, which are fermented to produce lactic acid and then undergo condensation and melt spinning to create the fiber.
