What Is Polyester?

Posted in Tips & Trends

Polyester is a synthetic fiber introduced in some products in the 1950′s, and carpet in the 1960′s.  It is made either as staple or continuous filament.  Its characteristics include good abrasion resistance, good color retention, and ability to accept bright, vivid colors, stain resistance, and wearability.  It is moth proof, stain and soil resistant, mildew resistant and non-allergenic.  Recommended for light traffic because it is less durable and less resilient than nylon.  It also exhibits poor appearance retention and pattern walk-out as compared with nylon.
