These two kinds of synthetic fibers are more used in the field of clothing and textile. Because they are common, people will compare these two kinds of clothing fabrics. Which is better, lightweight nylon fabric or polyester fabric? We will see which fabric is better by comparing their characteristics.
Nylon and polyester are actually quite common, but we call them nylon and polyester more. These two kinds of synthetic fibers are more used in the field of clothing and textile. Because they are common, people will compare these two kinds of clothing fabrics. Which is better, nylon or polyester?
Features of Nylon Fabric:
First of all, nylon and polyester are both chemical fibers, so they all have better wear resistance, so they are all suitable for the production of garments with higher wear resistance requirements, such as jerseys, sports vests, etc. At the same time, nylon has certain corrosion resistance, garments are not easy to deteriorate and damage when adhering to sweat or other corrosive substances, and finally the fabric surface of nylon will be smoother, the fabric will be easier to wash and very easy to dry, thus this "lazy" fabric has also gained certain competitiveness in the garment market.
Characteristics of polyester fiber:
Then there is the characteristic of polyester fabric. Apart from the abrasion resistance mentioned above, polyester, called elastic fiber, has the highest elasticity among all synthetic fibers, and the strength of polyester fabric is also very high. Even if a large external force is applied to stretch clothes, it will not be damaged but can be quickly restored. Polyester is superior to nylon in this respect, but its air permeability is very general, and if you wear polyester clothes in summer, you will feel rather stuffy.
Then look at the prices of nylon and polyester. If you look at polyester fabric, the wholesale price will be around 30 pieces per meter, while nylon may be slightly more expensive than polyester, with the wholesale price more concentrated at 40 pieces per meter. Compared with the characteristics of the two, polyester will have better strength and wear resistance than nylon, but it is not as breathable as nylon. They are easier to wash and have better anti-pilling performance. Although they are not high-grade fabrics, they are very practical. The specific kind depends on your needs. For example, nylon is definitely good for summer sportswear, while polyester will be used by more manufacturers for T-shirts.
