Our blackest product to date, "Musou Black Fabric KIWAMI" has arrived!

After months of planning and testing, we are very excited to present our newest product, "Musou Black Fabric KIWAMI!" By vertically arranging longer rayon piles with special black dyes and weaving patterns, we have achieved an ideal three-dimensional structure in which stray-reflective light is absorbed between the piles. As a result, it achieves a light absorption rate of 99.905% in the visible light spectrum, making it the blackest product among our products and the World's Blackest Fabric!

 

From photography to industry and research purposes, this fabric can easily be used by anyone for a variety of purposes!

 

You can use it as a black backdrop for photography because it is easy to achieve an ultra-black background under a wide range of exposure conditions, which enables a dramatic effect that makes the subject stand out. You could also use this product for exhibition purposes and you can create a mysterious visual effect as if the background were cut out.

 

The possibilities are endless!

 

During development, to solve the problem of pile-loss caused by the loosening of threads, the base fabric is back-coated with resin. This back-coating does make the fabric stiffer so for those who require a more flexible version, please send us an email at: kopro@koyo-orient.co.jp! We can provide a softer version without the back-coating!

 

Please note that fabric specializes in visible light and is not suitable for projects involving infrared light. Our IR Flock Sheet is still the best solution for infrared light absorption.

Shipping and Handling Precautions

  • Pressure, abrasion, and water damage will cause a decrease in light- absorption performance.
  • 24m rolls will be wrapped around a metal frame to prevent pressure on the piles during shipping.
  • Meter-cuts (up to 10m) will be wrapped around cardboard tubes. In order to avoid decreased performance from pressure, please unpack the roll as soon as possible after delivery, and store it flat or in a pressure-free condition.
  • If a decrease in performance or pile-collapse can be seen, applying steam indirectly and brushing may help restore performance. However, please be careful not to apply too much steam to the point where water droplets are formed as this will cause water damage.
  • Due to the manufacturing process, markings or broken threads may be inevitable. In which case such defects will be marked on the edge of the fabric with tabs and an extra 10cm of fabric will be added for each defect.
