Polyester is a very versatile fiber. Fabrics composed of polyester fiber offer the following characteristics:
Generally low priced compared to those made from high temperature resistance or high modulus fibers.
A wide range of fiber sizes (deniers) available for fabric development.
Can be heat and chemically treated to accommodate tight specification applications.
Melting point approximately 482°F (295°C).
Tenacity up to 8.5 grams per denier.
Quick-drying and mildew resistant.
Good abrasion resistance.
Polyester is more resistant to stretching and shrinking than nylon.
Relatively hydrophobic, more so than nylon fabrics.
Excellent retention of properties under very low temperature conditions.
Resistant to degradation in acidic environments (pH
