What is polyester fabric 2019.09.06

Polyester fabric is a kind of chemical fiber fabric used in daily life. Its biggest advantage is its good wrinkle resistance and shape retention. Therefore, it is suitable for outdoor clothing such as jacket clothing, various bags and tents.

Polyester fabric has high strength and elastic recovery, so it is durable, wrinkle-free and non-iron.
Polyester fabrics have poor hygroscopicity, and they have a stuffy feeling in summer, and they are easy to carry static electricity in winter, which affects comfort. However, it is very easy to dry after washing, and the wet strength is hardly reduced, it is not deformed, and it has good washing and wearability.
Polyester is the most heat-resistant fabric in synthetic fabrics. It is thermoplastic and can be made into pleated skirts with long pleats.
Polyester fabrics have better lightfastness, and their lightfastness is better than natural fiber fabrics except for acrylic fibers. Especially in the back of the glass, the light fastness is very good, almost the same as acrylic fiber.

Polyester fabrics are resistant to a wide range of chemicals. Acid and alkali have little damage to them, and they are not afraid of mold and are not afraid of insects.
Polyester is widely used in the manufacture of clothing and industrial products. Flame-retardant polyester has a wide range of applications due to its permanent flame retardancy. It plays an irreplaceable role in industrial textiles, interior decoration, and interior decoration. It also plays a role in the field of protective clothing. According to the national standards for flame-retardant protective clothing, fire-retardant protective clothing should be used in metallurgy, forestry, chemical, petroleum, fire-fighting and other departments.

The number of people who should use flame-retardant protective clothing in China is more than one million, and the market potential of flame-retardant protective clothing is huge. In addition to pure flame retardant polyester, it can produce multi-functional products such as flame retardant, waterproof, oil repellent and antistatic according to the special requirements of users. For example, the waterproof and oil-repellent finishing of the flame-retardant polyester fabric can improve the functionality of the flame-retardant garment; the flame-retardant polyester and the conductive fiber are interwoven to produce an antistatic flame-retardant fabric; and the flame-retardant fiber is blended with the high-performance fiber. It can produce high-performance flame-retardant fabrics; it is blended with flame-retardant fibers and fibers such as cotton and viscose to improve the comfort of protective clothing and reduce secondary burns.
