Same point
1, Are synthetic fibers in chemical fibers;
2, High strength, good wear resistance; widely used in clothing and apparel industry
3, Poor ventilation, wear hot and uncomfortable, easy to produce static electricity.
1, The proportion of different. Polyester 1.38, Nylon 1.14
2, Polyester fabric is not easy to wrinkle, and crisp, good dimensional stability, good shape retention. Poor shape retention of nylon, no polyester crisp, easy to deform.
3, Polyester melting point at 260 ℃, ironing temperature can be 180 ℃. Nylon heat resistance is not good enough, the ironing temperature should be controlled below 140 ℃, low temperature performance.
4, High strength nylon, elastic recovery ability, good wear resistance, hygroscopicity and dyeing better than polyester.
5, Polyester sun-resistant, acid and alkali-resistant. Nylon and alkali-resistant acid, light is not good, long-term exposure to sunlight fiber strength will decline, the color yellow.
6, Nylon woven feel more smooth, high surface gloss. Clothing in sportswear, swimwear, bodybuilding, socks more.
7, Polyester fiber is the world's largest production of synthetic fibers. Polyester fabrics mainly knitted shirts, overalls, warp knitting decorations, curtains, etc., silk imitation, wool, imitation hemp, cotton, etc. also used a lot. Polyester staple fiber is often blended with cotton, wool, hemp, viscose, etc. The fabrics not only keep the characteristics of dacron, wearable, crisp and easy to collect, but also absorb moisture, keep warm and reduce static electricity.
