Elastic Brushed Fabric & Elastic Loop Fabric - OK Fabric

"OK fabric" is a special elastic raising fabric, also called as "Elastic Loop Fabric", originally developed by TORAY (Japan), 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". having elasticity is the main difference between it and ordinary brushed fabric or ordinary loop fabric. The back of the OK fabric is not coated with glue and cannot be used alone after cutting, it can only be used after laminated neoprene, mainly used in the manufacture of horse protective gear, medical protective gear, sports protective gear and wetsuit accessories 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.

Because OK fabric was originally developed by TORAY (Japan), usually we refer to this kind of fabric produced in Japan as "OK Fabric" or "JOK Fabric" (Japan OK Fabric), Taiwan production called "TOK Fabric" (Taiwan OK Fabric), China production called "COK Fabric" (China OK Fabric). In addition to TORAY, another company in Japan, SAWAMURA, has also started producing OK fabric in recent years, and there are several such fabric manufacturers in Taiwan and mainland China.

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. For a long time, our company has been working hard to improve the production process. Finally, in 2017, we developed a product comparable to Japan OK fabric. The performance indicators are same or close to Japan OK fabric, and the cost is only half of Japan OK fabric. We named it "YOK Fabric".

At present, our company can directly sell Japan TORAY OK fabric (direct import), Yong Sheng YOK fabric (self-produced, comparable to Japan OK fabric), Taiwan Nam Liong TOK fabric (direct import), China COK fabric (self-produced). If the customer needs, our company can also provide all kinds of OK fabric laminated neoprene products (OK Neoprene Fabric). Whether selling OK fabric directly or selling OK neoprene fabric, our company offers highly competitive products because there is no intermediate link.

Remark 1: "Terry Fabric" is a predecessor of "OK Fabric". Its performance and application are similar, but its elasticity is relatively small, and slightly lower durability, but the price is cheaper, and there are more suppliers. Commonly used terry fabric has three kinds of "Medical Plush", "Long Shiny Terry", "Short Shiny Terry" (➜ Terry Fabric).

Remark 2: "Brushed Fabric" also called as "Flannelette", has many types, has good warmth retention, and has a soft feel. Broadly speaking "OK Fabric" is a kind of "Brushed Fabric", but ordinary brushed fabric is usually inelastic and the fluff is relatively thin. Because the surface is brushed, most brushed fabric have some hook and loop fastening performance.
