The main components and structure of polyester cotton fabric

- May 17, 2019-

Polyester cotton fabric refers to polyester-cotton blended fabric, which is made of polyester. It not only highlights the style of polyester but also the strength of cotton fabric. It has good elasticity and wear resistance in dry and wet conditions, and its size is stable. The shrinkage rate is small, and it has the characteristics of straightening, not easy to wrinkle, easy to wash, and quick drying. It cannot be immersed in high temperature ironing and boiling water.


Many shirts are made of polyester or cotton, which are two different fabrics. Polyester/cotton fabric means that the composition of polyester accounts for more than 60%, and the composition of cotton is less than 40%. The opposite of cotton polyester fabric is that the composition of the surface is above 60%, and the composition of polyester is below 40%.


The structure of the polyester-cotton fabric is determined by the spinning hole, and the conventional polyester has a circular cross section and no intermediate cavity. By changing the cross-sectional shape of the fiber, a shaped fiber can be produced. Improve brightness and cohesion. The fiber macromolecule has a high crystallinity and a high degree of orientation, so the fiber has high strength and good abrasion resistance. It has good elasticity and is not easy to wrinkle. It has good shape retention, good light resistance and heat resistance. It is quick-drying and non-iron after washing, and has good washing and wearability.
