Different types of polyester fabrics
In order to learn more about polyester fibers, it is important to know more detailed information about the three main types of textile:
1. Vinyl polyester
Vinyl polyester, also known as PET, is the most popular type of polyester on the market. In most cases, the term "polyester" is synonymous with "PET" even if there are other types of polyester.
2. Plant-based polyester
The main advantage of plant-based polyester is that the fabric is biodegradable. However, plant-based polyesters are more expensive to manufacture and may be less durable than their PET or PCDT textile equivalents.
3. PCDT polyester
Although PCDT polyester is not as popular as PET polyester, it is more flexible, which makes it ideal for certain applications. PCDT Polyester is also more durable than PET polyester, so this fabric is usually the first choice for heavy-duty applications such as upholstery and curtains.
