What is RPET?

rPET Fabric, commonly referred to as an environmentally-friendly fabric crafted from recycled PET yarn bottles, has become a new type of green and eco-friendly fabric created from its low carbon source – revolutionizing regeneration efforts in terms of sustainability.

The difference from traditional fabrics:

1. It can reduce the use of oil, saving 6 tons of oil per ton of finished yarn and reducing air pollution.

2. With authoritative certification from the US SCS Environmental Protection Agency, it has a higher international recognition.

3. In response to the presence of chlorine in PVC (which is the main source of dioxin and has been proven to be a carcinogen), as well as heavy metals, plasticizers, and other pollutants that pollute the environment, without PVC, and with almost undetectable heavy metal content, PVC products have been specifically replaced as a new generation of environmentally friendly materials suppliers (environmentally friendly rolled PE, TPE, EVA, PEVA).

RPET Fabric Classification: According to yarn type: long silk fabric, elastic silk fabric, short fiber fabric

According to weaving style: RPET Oxford fabric, RPET elastic silk fabric (light and thin), RPET long silk fabric (light and thin), RPET peach skin velvet fabric, RPET suede fabric, RPET chiffon fabric, RPET satin fabric, RPET polyester cotton fabric, RPET canvas fabric, RPET Lixin fabric (non-woven fabric), RPET conductive fabric (anti-static), RPET lifting Flower fabric, RPET knitted fabric (sweaty fabric), RPET mesh fabric (sandwich mesh fabric, pearl ground mesh fabric, bird eye fabric), RPET velvet fabric (coral velvet, Farley velvet, fleece, double-sided velvet, PV velvet, ultra soft velvet, comfortable cotton velvet), RPET fabric are widely used.


Product performance:

1. Durable and unchanging, resembling textiles.

2. It has health benefits and can promote blood circulation.

3. Wear resistant, good breathability, and hygienic.

4. Easy to process functional products without changing their physical properties. For example: waterproof, anti mold and anti odor, anti-static, etc.

5. It does not contain azo, heavy metals, etc., is resistant to high temperature, acid and alkali, has strong water absorption, and is environmentally friendly and harmless.

6. 100% RPET is 100% environmentally friendly.

7. RPET Lixin fabric is dyed and printed to provide a variety of colors and patterns, meeting the aesthetic needs of different groups of people.

Recently, rPET nonwoven fabric has become increasingly popular as an eco-friendly shopping bag material. Lamination weight typically falls within 65-130 grams range while printing fabric generally ranges between 130-300 grams; printing fabrics may then be turned into product bags through screen or heat transfer printing techniques and thickness and weight range can be adjusted based on customer needs.
