Customers who often buy shirts know that the fabric of many shirts is marked with polyester or cotton. "Polyester cotton" and "cotton polyester", the order of the two words is changed into two different fabrics. "Polyester-cotton" fabric means that the composition of polyester is more than 60%, and the composition of cotton is less than 40%, also called TC; "cotton polyester" is the opposite, which means that the composition of cotton is more than 60%, and the composition of polyester is 40%. Hereafter, it is also called CVC.
So, which of the two fabrics, "polyester-cotton" and "cotton-polyester" is better? This depends on the preferences and actual needs of customers. In other words, if you want a shirt with more characteristics of polyester fabric, choose "polyester cotton", and if you want more cotton characteristics, choose "cotton polyester".
Polyester-cotton is a mixture of polyester and cotton, and feels less comfortable than cotton. It is not as good as cotton to absorb sweat. Polyester is the largest variety with the highest output among synthetic fibers. Polyester has many trade names, and "polyester" is a common trade name in my country. The chemical name is polyethylene terephthalate, which is usually made by the polymerization of chemicals, so the scientific name often carries "poly". Polyester is also called polyester. Structure and performance: The structure shape is determined by the spinneret hole. The cross-section of conventional polyester is round and has no cavity. Changing the cross-sectional shape of the fiber can produce special-shaped fibers. Improve brightness and cohesion. Fiber macromolecules have high crystallinity and high orientation, so the fiber has high strength (20 times that of viscose fiber) and good wear resistance. Good elasticity, not easy to wrinkle, stiff and good shape retention, good light resistance and heat resistance, quick-drying after washing, no ironing, good wash and wear performance.
Polyester is a chemical fiber fabric, which is not easy to wick away sweat. It feels thorny to the touch, and it is easy to generate static electricity, and it looks bright when tilted.
Polyester-cotton blended fabric is a variety developed in my country in the early 1960s. The fiber has the characteristics of stiff, smooth, quick-drying, and durable, and is deeply loved by consumers. At present, the blended varieties have developed from the original ratio of 65% polyester to 35% cotton to 65:35, 55:45, 50:50, 20:80 and other different ratios of blended fabrics. The purpose is to adapt to different levels. Consumer demand.
