1.Health function 

Flax fiber fabric has a good health care function. It has a unique inhibitory effect on bacteria. An aromatic plant of the genus flax that exudes a faint fragrance. Experts say the scent kills many bacteria and inhibits the growth of a variety of parasites. The scientific experiment made by contact method proves that: Flax products have significant bacteriostasis, the bacteriostatic rate of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans and other international standard strains can reach above 65%, and the antibacterial rate of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus beads is higher than 90%. The mummies of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs were wrapped in an amazingly sturdy linen cloth to keep them intact. Flax fiber fabric is known as the "natural air conditioning." Flax has excellent heat dissipation because flax is the only fiber in the natural fiber. Bundle fibers are formed by the use of gum adhesion of flax single cells, because there is no more air conditions, linen fabric permeability ratio of more than 25%, thus its thermal conductivity (permeability) excellent. and can quickly and effectively reduce the skin surface temperature of 4-8 ℃. Flax fiber straight and smooth, in 50 times times more than the amplification projection, it is like a bamboo, no cotton, hair fiber and other distortions.

This characteristic makes the textile which accumulates the fine dust or the dirt, will be easy to remove because the dust cannot find the hiding place. Humans are exposed to ultraviolet rays for a long time, damaging the body. and linen textile products contain hemicellulose is the best absorption of ultraviolet light substances. Hemicellulose is actually not yet ripe for cellulose. Flax fiber contains hemicellulose at more than 18%, several times higher than cotton fiber.

When it becomes a dress, it can protect the skin from UV damage.

Linen fabric can reduce the sweat of the human body than other fabrics, the water absorption rate of flax textiles is more than satin, artificial silk, or even more than cotton several times faster.

2. Good flame retardant performance 

Flax is the best flame retardant fiber in all textile fibres.

The hoses used by the fire brigade, fire-fighting clothing worn by firefighters, are made of flax fibres.
