What is blackout fabric and what material is it made of?

Blackout fabric is a type of fabric primarily used for blocking sunlight and ultraviolet rays.

It has multiple advantages, such as excellent light-blocking effects, non-toxic, odorless, soft to the touch, soundproof, heat-insulating, waterproof, fire-resistant, UV-resistant, and protective of human health.

The main material used in the production of blackout fabric is polyester, also known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET) fiber.

Polyester is a high molecular weight polymer produced through esterification or transesterification and polycondensation reactions using purified terephthalic acid (PTA) or dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) and ethylene glycol (EG) as raw materials. The material is then spun and processed into fibers.

Currently, the blackout fabric available in the market can be classified into coated blackout fabric, woven blackout fabric, flame-retardant blackout fabric, embossed blackout fabric, printed blackout fabric, and jacquard blackout fabric, among others.

It is mainly used as an interior decoration fabric and can be utilized for eco-friendly, permanently flame-retardant blackout curtain fabrics in hotels, guesthouses, hospitals, and other public places.
