Forming Fabric Materials

Apr. 18, 2019

Polyester monofilament is the most widely used material for forming fabrics. It has the following advantages over other polymer materials:
1 Less elongation with respect to loads,
2 Strong and durable,
3 Minimal hygroscopicity (highly stable in wet environments)
4 Greater fatigue resistance, and
5 Highly corrosion-resistant (especially with respect to acids).
The table shows properties and specifications of fabric materials. Poalypropylene and polyvinylidene fluoride have superior acid and alkali resistance, and thus are commonly used raw material for forming fabrics. Although polyamide has less stability (due to its hygroscopicity), it can be used for its excellent resistance to abrasion and fibrilization.
