Cotton and polyester yarn are two common fabrics on the market. People often see cotton or polyester fabrics when they look at the fabrics of clothes. So what is the difference between these two fabrics? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? A brief overview of today:
Cotton is a natural fiber, its main component is cellulose, and the elasticity of cotton fiber is poor, so do not scrub vigorously when washing, so as not to deform the clothes and affect the size. No static electricity, excellent air permeability, anti-sensitivity, easy to clean. Soft and comfortable to the touch, cotton products are more suitable for making underwear, clothing, and bedding four-piece sets.
Polyester is an important variety of synthetic fibers, and its basic constituent material is polyethylene terephthalate, which is the abbreviation of polyester fiber. Polyester has good wrinkle resistance and shape retention, and its elasticity is close to that of wool. When the elongation is 5% to 6%, it can be almost completely recovered; polyester fabrics have good resistance to various chemicals, and the degree of damage to them by acid and alkali is not large. , At the same time not afraid of mold, not afraid of insects. However, it is not easy to perspire, feels thorny and pulls, and is prone to static electricity, which makes people dislike it.
Cotton and polyester have their own advantages and disadvantages, so manufacturers now produce clothing that is generally 90% cotton plus a few percent polyester to keep the clothing wrinkle-resistant and not easy to deform. At the same time, it retains the breathability, softness and comfort, and is deeply loved by people.
