What Are The Characteristics Of Polyester? Why Choose Polyester Fabric?

1. What is polyester?

Polyester Fabric is a general term for any fabric or textile made using polyester yarns or fibers. It is short for synthetic man-made polymer, and as a special material, it is most commonly referred to as polyethylene terephthalate (PET). It is made from a mixture of ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. It sounds very scientific, but basically, polyester is a type of plastic.

3. Why choose polyester?

Because polyester is thermoplastic or heat-sensitive, it is such a popular clothing choice. This means that 100% polyester fabrics can be given permanent pleats and decorative shapes and patterns can be laser cut into them. They are also highly stain-resistant, making them ideal for cleaning.

You may notice that when a piece of clothing is 100% polyester, it is prone to static electricity. It's a nightmare when it comes to making sure your hair looks good and you may find yourself able to give people a static shock - harmless but potentially annoying! To eliminate this problem, polyester is often blended with more stable fibers such as cotton. This is called polyester-cotton, and it embodies the best of both fabrics; much stronger, more durable, wrinkle-resistant, and breathable than 100% polyester.

Polyester clothing tends to be slippery, and almost silky to the touch, and the fibers can be woven or knitted into fabric, although knitting maximizes its flexibility. It is a naturally bright fiber that can be easily modified to suit different uses.
