If there are no specific requirements from clothing label customers, the material commonly used for woven labels is polyester. There are various types of materials available, such as pure cotton, nylon, rayon, and others. However, why choose polyester? Let’s take a look at the characteristics of polyester fabric.
Polyester woven labels have the following features:
- Polyester fabrics have high strength and excellent elasticity recovery, making them durable, wrinkle-resistant, and easy to maintain their shape.
- Polyester fabrics have poor moisture absorption, which can cause a stuffy feeling when worn. They are also prone to static electricity and dust accumulation, affecting their appearance and comfort. However, they dry quickly after washing and have good resistance to deformation and wear, making them suitable for clothing labels.
- Polyester is a heat-resistant fabric among synthetic fibers and has thermoplastic properties. It can be used to make pleated skirts with long-lasting pleats. However, polyester fabrics have poor resistance to melting and can form holes when exposed to cigarette ash or sparks. Therefore, it is advisable to avoid contact with cigarette ends or sparks when wearing them.
- Polyester fabrics have good light resistance, surpassing natural fiber fabrics except for acrylic. They have excellent sun resistance when behind glass, almost comparable to acrylic.
- Polyester fabrics exhibit excellent resistance to various chemicals. They are not significantly affected by acids, alkalis, molds, or insects.
In summary, the choice of polyester material for woven labels is primarily due to its excellent wrinkle resistance, shape retention, and durability, making it a popular synthetic fabric used in clothing and woven label production.
