Is nylon better than polyester ?

December 08,2022

Nylon and polyester each have their own strengths.

Which material is best suited to your project will depend upon the end use and the fabric design.The silky feel of nylon is hard to beat, which is why nylon is the preferred choice for yoga and underwear brands. But whilst nylon is softer and stronger, polyester dries faster, dyes more easily and is less likely to pill. Because it has high strength and elastic recovery ability, it is firm and wear-resistant, anti-wrinkle and non-ironing. In addition, they shed moisture quickly and are gradually becoming more and more widely used. With the advancement of textile technology, various non-natural fiber fabrics or blended fabrics have surpassed natural fiber fabrics in some specific properties. It is no exaggeration to say that they have become irreplaceable.

Polyester fiber is a large category, and polyester is one of them.

The technology of polyester fiber is very mature, and many big-name manufacturers are using polyester fiber blended fabrics. This is because it has high strength and elastic recovery ability, so it is firm and wear-resistant, wrinkle-resistant and non-ironing. The light resistance of polyester fiber is also relatively good, the light resistance is better than natural fiber fabrics, acid and alkali corrosion resistance, and it is not afraid of mold and insects. It is precisely because of so many advantages that polyester fibers are widely used by big brands. (1) Polyester fiber/cotton/cashmere yarn-dyed double-sided fabric This fabric has excellent moisture absorption and perspiration characteristics, and has less hairiness, high strength, good abrasion resistance, and the fabric does not foam. This fabric gives full play to the comprehensive advantages of the three fibers, the front is smooth and flat, the reverse is soft and warm, has good moisture absorption and perspiration, strong wrinkle resistance, antistatic and is not easy to pilling, and has excellent clothing performance.Zhejiang Tongyou Import & Export Co., Ltd.,The company mainly deals in nylon, polyester and other textile raw materials, as well as a series of products such as double twister, winder, wire supporter, shaking machine and various textile machinery. We can provide various specifications of high-quality raw materials and textile equipment for cotton socks, stockings, seamless underwear, gloves, clothing, etc.

Polyester fiber nano-silicon moisture-absorbing and quick-drying fabrics.

Many fabrics with moisture-absorbing and quick-drying functions mostly realize the moisture-absorbing and quick-drying function by modifying the cross-section of the fibers or adding functional materials with polyester fibers as the carrier. This kind of fiber not only has the characteristics of low rigidity, good luster, and soft hand feeling of ordinary flat fibers, but also increases the specific surface area of the fiber due to the addition of nano-silicon, there by accelerating the conduction and conversion rate of liquid water to vapor state, and has good air permeability.

The biggest advantage of polyester fiber is that it has good wrinkle resistance and shape retention, and has high strength and elastic recovery ability. It is firm and durable, anti-wrinkle, non-ironing, non-sticky, and has very good color fastness. The fabric woven by it is not only 3 to 4 times faster than other fibers, but also crisp and not easy to deform, so it has the reputation of "non-ironing"; polyester has strong heat resistance; it has good chemical stability, Under normal temperature, it will not interact with weak acids, weak bases and oxidants. Expansion information: Polyester fiber, commonly known as "polyester". It is a synthetic fiber obtained by spinning polyester obtained by polycondensation of organic dibasic acid and dibasic alcohol, referred to as PET fiber, which belongs to polymer compounds. Invented in 1941, it is currently the largest variety of synthetic fibers. Due to its easy-to-obtain raw materials, excellent performance, wide range of uses, and very rapid development, polyester output has ranked first in chemical fibers.

These are all reasons why polyester is a popular option for garments used in sports like running, basketball, soccer and football.Nevertheless, technological advances are improving both fabrics. For example, polyester yarn is becoming softer. And with a wicking finish, nylon can take away moisture and dry more quickly.TongYou manufacturers are at the forefront of these changes and the region boasts some of the best synthetic filament production in the world. Manufacturers’ expertise in fine denier filament along with nylon dyeing and printing, has made them the go-to option for many global, big name brands.
