What fabric is 100% polyester?


Polyester, an important variety of synthetic fiber, the trade name of polyester fiber. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a fiber-forming polymer made from purified terephthalic acid (PTA) or dimethyl terephthalate (DMT) and ethylene glycol (EG), is spun and post-treated.


Features of polyester fabric:


1. Polyester fabric has good resistance to various chemicals, and it is not damaged by acid and alkali, and it is not afraid of mold and moth.

2. Polyester is the fabric with the best heat resistance among synthetic fabrics, and it is thermoplastic.

3. Polyester fabric has high strength and elastic recovery ability, so it has the characteristics of firmness, durability, wrinkle resistance and non-ironing.

4. Polyester fabric has good light resistance, and its light resistance is better than that of natural fiber fabric, which is comparable to that of acrylic fabric.


Advantages and disadvantages of polyester fabric:



(1) strong resilience, not easy to fold

Polyester fabric has super resilience. If you rub the fabric repeatedly, it will soon return to its original shape without leaving wrinkles. Compared with clothes made of cotton and linen, polyester fabric clothes are more crisp.

(2) good heat resistance, and can be ironed

Polyester has the best heat resistance and strong plasticity in chemical fiber fabrics. If it is made into a pleated skirt, it can keep pleats well and can be ironed at the same time.

(3) Good light resistance and sun protection

Polyester fabric is the main fabric made in sun-protective clothing, and its light fastness is very good, and its light fastness exceeds that of natural fiber fabric, so polyester fabric is the main fabric material used in sun-protective clothing.




(1) poor dyeability

Because there is no specific dyeing group in the molecular chain of polyester, and the polarity is small, it is difficult to dye and the dyeability is poor, so dye molecules are not easy to enter the fiber.

(2) Poor hygroscopicity

Polyester fabric has poor hygroscopicity, feels sultry when wearing, and is easy to carry static electricity and dust, which affects aesthetics and comfort.

(3) easy pilling

Polyester fabric is one of the synthetic fiber products at present, and all synthetic fiber fabrics will have pilling phenomenon, and polyester fabric as a kind of synthetic fiber is no exception.
