POLYESTER FIBER (DACRON)

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<7.0).

  • Significant strength degradation over time with extended UV exposure.
