Title – Polyester manufacturer and their contribution in textile industry
Description - The polyester manufacturers in India are making their presence felt in
terms of the different categories of the products made up of polyester and the
production services offered by them. Thus, they are working both the domestic level
as well at an international level.
Polyester is an artificial man made fiber and is bright by nature. Polyester is generally
manufactured from petroleum from which constituent acid and alcohol are derived.
There are several processes that can be carried out on the base polyester fiber. These
process add dimension to the polyester fiber as required for various end uses. There
are several processes that can be carried out on the base polyester fiber. These
processes add dimension to the polyester fiber for various end uses. This fibre is a
workhouse for many applications because of its good properties at the lowest price.
Polyester is used in the manufacture of many products, including clothing, home
furnishing, industrial fabrics , computer and recording tapes and electrical insulation.
Polyester fabrics have certain advantages over traditional fabrics such as cotton. It
doesn't absorb moisture, it doesn't absorb oil; this quality makes polyester the perfect
fabric for the application of soil, water and fire – resistant finishes. The low
absorbency makes it naturally resistant to stains. Polyester is manufactured by one of
several methods. The one used used depends on the form the finished polyester will
take. The four basic forms are filament, staple, tow and fiberfill. In the filament form,
each individual strand of polyester fiber is continuous in length, producing smooth
surfaced fabrics. In the staple form , the filaments are cut too short, predetermined
length. In this form, polyester is easy to blend with other fabrics. Tow is a form in
which continuous filament are drawn loosely together. Fiberfill is a voluminous form
in which continuous filament used in the production of quilts, pillows and outerwear.
The two forms used are most frequently filament and staple.
The polyester manufacturers are responsible for shipping out textile mills to be
woven into fabrics. Polyester can be made both into woven and knitted fabrics. In
making polyester fiber, polymerization, drying and melt spinning are much the same
as in the manufacture of filament yarn. The polyester fabric is shrink resistant,
abrasion resistant, stain proof, high durable and can retain its shape and color.
Nowadays, polyester is combined with cotton fabrics to prevent some of the problems
that people suffer from wearing 100% cotton. Cotton could wrinkle very easily due
to the absorptive properties of all natural fabrics. Polyester could easily retain its
shape and color and can be cleaned very easily because of different types of treatment
that were applied to the fabric during its manufacturing process.
Polyester manufacturer found this technique to manufacture poly cotton in varying
amount. In the cotton poly mix it would be 51% cotton and rest 49% polyester. A
standard poly cotton mix is ,mainly used in the manufacture of bedsheets, pillow
cover and blanket that would be 65% polyester and mainly 35% cotton for comfort
and durability. Polyester is a strong, durable and long lasting fiber. When washed it
will easily maintain its shape longer than any other fabric and hold its colors too. It
soft and light to touch and is less susceptible to shrinkage, wrinkles and static. But
this fabric is not as breathable as pure cotton and will keep you warmer than pure
cotton. If you need to iron poly cotton, use low heat setting. It can be washed in warm
water and dried on low to medium heat temperature.
