Cotton and polyester fabrics Cotton and polyester fabrics

    Polyester and cotton refer to polyester-cotton blended fabrics, which are based on polyester. Polyester blends are based on polyester, and 65%-67% polyester and 33%-35% cotton blended yarns are used for textiles. , Polyester and cotton cloth commonly known as cotton Dacron.

Polyester cotton features:

It not only highlights the style of polyester but also the strength of cotton fabrics. It has good elasticity and wear resistance under dry and wet conditions. It is dimensionally stable and has a small shrinkage rate. It has the characteristics of being upright, not easily wrinkled, easy to wash, and quick-drying. Can not use high temperature ironing and boiling water soak.

Disadvantages of polyester cotton:

The polyester fiber of polyester/cotton belongs to the hydrophobic fiber. It has strong affinity for oil stains, and it is easy to absorb oil. In addition, it is easy to generate static electricity and absorb dust during the wearing process. It is difficult to wash, and it cannot be soaked in high temperature ironing and boiling water.

Polyester cotton classification:

Customers who often buy shirts know that many shirts are marked with polyester or cotton. "Polyester-cotton" and "cotton-polyester" have changed into two different fabrics in the order of two characters. "Polyester-cotton" fabric means that the polyester component accounts for more than 60%, and the cotton component is about 40%; "cotton-polyester" is just the opposite, meaning that the composition of the face is above 60% and that of the polyester is about 40%.

Then, what are the two types of fabrics, "polyester-cotton" and "cotton-polyester," which depends on customer preferences and actual needs? In other words, you hope that the characteristics of the fabric polyester of a shirt are more, so you should select “polyester cotton” and hope that Burma’s characteristics are more, so choose “cotton-polyester”.

Polyester/cotton is a mixture of polyester and cotton. It is not as comfortable as cotton. Wearing and not as good as cotton Hanhan. Polyester is the largest producer of synthetic fiber. Polyester has multiple trade names, "Polyester" is the name of our country. The chemical name is polyethylene terephthalate, usually chemically polymerized, so the scientific name often comes with "poly". Polyester is also called polyester. Structure and performance: The structure shape is determined by the spinning hole. The conventional polyester cross-section is round and has no middle cavity. Changing the cross-sectional shape of the fiber can produce shaped fibers. Improve brightness and cohesion. Fiber macromolecules have high degree of crystallinity and degree of orientation, so fiber strength is high (20 times that of viscose fiber), and the abrasion resistance is good. The elasticity is not easy to wrinkle, the shape retention is good, the light resistance is good, the heat is good, the quick-drying is free of hot after washing, and the washing can be worn well.

Polyester is a chemical fiber fabric and it is not easy to perspire. It feels like a tangled pull, it's easy to get static, and it looks like there is light shining diagonally.

Polyester-cotton blended fabric is a product developed in China in the early 1960s. The fiber has the characteristics of crispness, smoothness, quick-drying, and wear-resistance, and is deeply loved by consumers. At present, the blended varieties have been developed from the original proportion of 65% polyester and 35% cotton to 65:35, 55:45, 50:50, 20:80 and other various proportions of blended fabrics. Its purpose is to adapt to different levels. Consumer demand.
