Microfibers used in the textile industry have ultra-thin strands that are high in strength. They are used in the textile industry in cleansing and shining applications. Microfiber is a fiber with less than one denier per filament (denier is a measure of linear density, and it is generally used to describe the size of a filament). Microfibers can be made of polyester, nylon, or any other polymer. They are ultrathin and are considered hundred times finer than human hair. Many microfibers are woven together to form a single strand, and these strands are woven into textiles. Standard combination of microfiber used in textile industry contains 70% to 90% polyester and 10% to 30% polyamide. Microfibers are generally used in cleaning purposes because of their high absorbing properties. They last longer than cotton and can be washed a thousand times before losing their effectiveness. They can remove large quantities of microbes, including hard to kill spores.
