Elastic Brushed Fabric & Elastic Loop Fabric - Japan OK Fabric

"OK Fabric" also called as "Elastic Loop Fabric" is a special elastic brushed fabric developed by TORAY (Japan). It is a blend of nylon and spandex (special weave) with 4-way elasticity. The surface of OK fabric is treated with high density brushed, and thus has a hook and loop fastening performance similar to the loop surface of a "Hook and Loop Fasteners". It can be used with the hook surface of a "Hook and Loop Fasteners". Usually we refer to this kind of fabric produced in Japan as "OK Fabric" or "JOK Fabric", Taiwan production called "TOK Fabric", China production called "COK Fabric". Elasticity, peel strength, and durability are the three major indicators for evaluating the performance of OK fabric. Japan OK fabric has the best performance, Taiwan TOK fabric is second, and China COK fabric is again.

At present, there are two major suppliers of OK fabric in Japan, TORAY and SAWAMURA. OK fabric was originally developed by TORAY. In recent years, SAWAMURA is also started producing OK fabric. Japanese original OK fabric is the best in performance, but the price is also the most expensive, usually only used to manufacture high demand and high-end products (horse protective gear, medical protective gear etc).

The development of OK fabric comes from the actual needs in the industry. Products made of neoprene fabric as materials, when need to use "Hook and Loop Fasteners", if you sew "Hook and Loop Fasteners" on the neoprene fabric directly, it will cause neoprene layer is damaged, leaking, poor firmness, easy to tear. The thickness of the neoprene fabric can be up to 11 mm (1 - 11mm), sewing the "Hook and Loop Fasteners" on the thicker neoprene fabric is not feasible. And the "Hook and Loop Fasteners" have no elasticity, when used in conjunction with high-elasticity neoprene fabric, they cannot be synchronized during stretching, causing damage. The use of OK fabric can avoid these problems. When manufacturing protective gear products, because the entire OK fabric can be used with the hook surface of "Hook and Loop Fasteners", it can also play an effect similar to stepless adjustment.

Our company has cooperated with Japan TORAY for a long time, and purchased TORAY OK fabric regularly or on demand, directly imported, without intermediate links. Whether selling Japan OK fabric directly or selling Japan OK neoprene fabric, our company offers highly competitive products because there is no intermediate link.
