The difference between nylon and polyester


The difference between nylon and polyester, polyester fabric and twill nylon fabric in life is very widely used, but most people do not understand the difference between nylon and polyester. At present, the clothing on the market is mainly made of polyester and nylon, so we have to learn to see the difference between nylon and polyester, so that we can buy quality goods.
Polyester is a synthetic fiber, is the raw material of elastic chemical fiber fabric, it itself is not a fabric, polyester is the former name, scientific name polyester, full name polyethylene terephthalate, is the name of polyester fiber in China. Nylon is Nylon, can be called nylon, polyamide fiber. The advantages are high strength, high wear resistance, high chemical resistance and good deformation resistance, anti-aging. The disadvantage is that it feels hard.
Sensory distinction
The gloss of the cloth is bright, the feel is slippery nylon; Fabric appearance darker than nylon, rougher is polyester;
The difference between nylon and polyester is the simplest burning method! The black smoke of polyester, the white smoke of nylon, and the residue after burning, the pinch of polyester will break, and the plastic of nylon! Nylon is twice as expensive as polyester.
In addition, you can scrape with your nails, after the nails are scraped, there are obvious traces of nylon, and the traces are not obvious of nylon, but this method is not as intuitive as the first method.
Which is better, nylon or polyester
Nylon is generally better elastic! The dyeing temperature is 100 degrees! Dye with neutral or acidic dyes. Height resistance is worse than polyester, but its strength is better, anti-pilling good! Use fire to whiten the color of the smoke. The polyester burned in a cloud of black smoke, and black ash followed. The dyeing temperature is 130 degrees (high temperature and high pressure), and the hot melt method is generally baked below 200 degrees! The main characteristics of polyester stability is better, general clothes add a small amount of polyester can help anti-wrinkle, plastic, the disadvantage is easy to electrostatic pilling. But now the improved polyester these shortcomings have been improved.
