What are the advantages and disadvantages of polyester waterproof material?


Advantages:


1. High intensity


The impact resistance of polyester cloth is good, it is reported that it is 4 times higher than nylon, 20 times higher than viscose fiber.


2. Strong flexibility


The polyester fabric is strong, the elasticity is close to wool, when elongation 5% ~ 6%, can completely recover, no matter how the polyester fabric repeatedly knead, can quickly recover the original shape, and do not leave wrinkle, its elasticity is higher than nylon 2 ~ 3 times.


3. Heat and wear resistance


Polyester is the best heat-resistant chemical fiber fabric, and its plasticity is very strong. If made into pleated skirt, it can keep pleat well.

The abrasion resistance is next to the best nylon, better than other natural fibers and synthetic fibers.


4. Light and corrosion resistance


Polyester fabric is second only to acrylic fiber in light resistance, it also has better corrosion resistance, it is reported to be resistant to bleach, oxidant, hydrocarbon, ketone, petroleum products and inorganic acids.

Dilute alkali, not afraid of mold, but hot alkali can make it broken down.


Disadvantages:


Polyester fabric is poor in moisture absorption, easy to run through water, easy to generate static electricity, dust infection, affect the beauty and comfort, but after cleaning is very simple and boring, wet strength almost does not decline, no deformation.
