Polyester is not a popular choice in industries that rely on heavy textile usage (eg apparel, footwear, etc.). The material may be relatively easy and inexpensive to produce, but it has its own set of drawbacks that severely limit its use in most clothing. Polyester, for example, deforms, warps, and twists easily unless mixed with other kinds of fabrics. However, there is a new product on the market today that may change the perception of polyester as a clothing/textile material - high-tenacity polyester fabric.
Some of the most notable properties of this new yarn include:
The yarn is very strong, very stable, and has a high chemical resistance. Therefore, they can be adapted for various functional and technical applications.
Resilience These high-tenacity polyester yarns are less prone to warping, warping, and twisting due to their extremely low elongation point and high abrasion resistance. They also have excellent foldability. As for its air shrinkage, it can be anywhere between 4% and 10% (varies depending on yarn gauge), while tensile recovery is 250 to 400cN/Tex.
Choice of new polyester yarns can be ordered and customized according to customer specifications. Diners can range from 210 to 4000 deniers, filaments from 24 to 192 with 5 to 7 vertices, and the yarns themselves come in a variety of compact, twist, or hybrid options.
While polyester is already used in a wide variety of industries, these high-tenacity polyester yarns can be used in more innovative footwear, and outdoor and luggage products. Due to their high durability, the yarns can withstand high-speed stitching, sewing, weaving, or weaving. Other applications include industrial fabrics, packaging materials, housewares, ropes, fashion accessories, safety belts, and other similar items.
