The advantages and disadvantages of 
polyester fabric

Polyester fabric is a very popular chemical fiber clothing material used in daily life. Its biggest advantage is wrinkle resistance and good shape retention. Therefore, it is suitable for outdoor clothing, clothing, bags, tents and other outdoor products.

The advantages of polyester fabric:

First, the strength of polyester fabric is high. Short fiber strength is 2.6 ~ 5.7cN/dtex, and high strength fiber is 5.6 to 8.0cN/dtex. Because of its low moisture absorption, its wet strength is basically the same as dry strength. Its impact strength is 4 times higher than that of nylon and 20 times higher than viscose fiber.
Second, the elasticity of polyester fabric is super strong. When the elasticity is close to wool, when the elongation is 5% to 6%, it can almost completely recover. The polyester fabric is rubbed repeatedly, and it will soon restore the original shape without leaving wrinkles. The modulus of elasticity is 22 to 141cN/dtex, which is 2~3 times higher than that of nylon, which is not comparable to other fabrics.

Third, the heat resistance of polyester fabric is very good. It can be said that in the polyester fiber fabric in the best heat resistance, strong plasticity, if made of pleated skirt, can keep the pleat, do not need too much ironing.

Fourth, the light resistance of polyester fabric is better. Polyester fabric made of articles are usually more light, more than natural fiber fabric, the fabric items placed in the sun is basically no problem, you don't have to worry about what side effects. This feature makes the light resistance of polyester fabric almost identical to the acrylic fabric.

Fifth, the wear resistance of polyester fabric is good. Wear resistance is second to the best wear resistance nylon, better than other natural fibers and synthetic fibers.
Sixth, polyester fabric has good chemical resistance. Polyester fabric made of textiles, acid and alkali on its destruction is not large, so some bleach and oxidants do not work at all, and polyester textiles are not afraid of mold, not afraid of moth eaten.

The shortcomings of polyester fabric:

First, the dyeability is poor. There is no specific Dyeing Group on polyester molecular chain, and the polarity is small, it is dyed more difficult, dyeability is poor, dyestuff molecules are not easy to enter fiber. But the color fastness is good, it is not easy to fade.

Second, poor anti fluxing. Polyester fabric is heat resistant synthetic fiber fabric in the best, with thermoplastic, can be made of pleated skirt, pleated long. At the same time, the polyester fabric melt resistance is poor, in ash, Mars is easy to form holes. Therefore, you should try to avoid the contact of the head, the spark and so on.

Third, the hygroscopicity is poor. Polyester fabric is poor in moisture absorption, wearing a dull heat, at the same time, easy to bring electrostatic, dirt dust, influence beauty and comfort. But after washing, it is very easy to dry, and the wet strength is almost no descent, no deformation and good washability.

Fourth, it's easy to get off the ball. Polyester fabric is one of the synthetic fiber products nowadays. Any synthetic fiber fabric will have pilling phenomenon. And polyester fabric as a synthetic fiber is no exception, so polyester fabric will play ball after a period of time.
