What Is the Difference Between Polyester Cotton And Pure Cotton?

Aug. 03, 2020

Polyester-cotton refers to the general term for the blended fabric of polyester and cotton. It is a textile woven with 65%-67% polyester and 33%-35% cotton blended yarn. It is a common material for making clothes. Polyester cotton and cotton polyester are two different materials.

Pure cotton is a textile made from cotton as raw material, which is interwoven with warp and weft yarns vertically and horizontally through a loom. There are many varieties of pure cotton fabrics with different colors. According to the dyeing method, it can be divided into primary color cotton, dyed cotton, printed cotton, and yarn-dyed cotton; it can also be divided into plain weave, twill, and forged weave according to the fabric structure.

Many people think that pure cotton is better when buying clothes, but this is not the case. The higher the ratio of cotton to polyester, the better the quality, because polyester-cotton takes advantage of the non-balling and polyester stability of cotton, so that the processed polyester-cotton overalls have a brighter color, good feel, and are not easy to deform. Not only that, polyester-cotton overalls also have the characteristics of low shrinkage, upright, not easy to wrinkle, easy to wash, and quick drying. Polyester cotton twill fabric exporter will show everyone their advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages and disadvantages of polyester cotton

Advantages of Polyester cotton fabric: It not only highlights the style of polyester but also has the advantages of cotton fabric. It has good elasticity and abrasion resistance in dry and wet conditions, stable size, low shrinkage, tall and straight, not easy to wrinkle, and easy to wash. , Quick-drying characteristics, can not be ironed with high temperature and soaked in boiling water.

Disadvantages of polyester cotton:

The polyester fiber in polyester-cotton is a hydrophobic fiber. It has a strong affinity for oil stains and is easy to absorb oil stains. It is also easy to generate static electricity during wearing and attract dust. It is difficult to wash and cannot be ironed with high temperature and soaked in boiling water. Polyester cotton is a synthetic fiber and cannot be degraded.

The advantages and disadvantages of pure cotton

1. Advantages:

1. Hygroscopicity

Cotton fiber has good hygroscopicity. Under normal conditions, the fiber can absorb moisture from the surrounding atmosphere, and its moisture content is 8-10%, so it touches human skin, making people feel soft and not stiff. If the humidity of the cotton cloth increases and the surrounding temperature is higher, all the moisture contained in the fiber will evaporate, so that the fabric can maintain a water balance and make people feel comfortable.

2. Moisturizing

Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity is extremely low, and because cotton fiber itself has the advantages of porosity and high elasticity, a large amount of air can accumulate between the fibers, and air is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, so pure Cotton fiber textiles have good moisture retention. Wearing pure cotton clothing makes people feel warm.

3. Heat resistance

100% cotton pocketing fabric has good heat resistance. When the temperature is below 110℃, it will only cause the moisture on the fabric to evaporate without damaging the fiber. Therefore, the pure cotton fabric is worn, used, and washed at room temperature. Printing and dyeing have no effect on fabrics, which improves the washability and wearability of cotton fabrics.

4. Alkali resistance

Cotton fiber has a high resistance to alkali. The fiber will not be damaged in the alkali solution. This performance is conducive to the washing of pollution after consumption, disinfection and removal of impurities, and it can also dye, print and print pure cotton textiles. Various processes are used to produce more new varieties of cotton.

5. Hygiene

Cotton fiber is a natural fiber, its main component is cellulose, there are a small amount of waxy substances, nitrogenous substances and pectin. The pure cotton fabric has been tested and practiced in many ways, and the fabric has no irritation or negative effect when it comes in contact with the skin. It is beneficial and harmless to the human body when worn for a long time, and has good hygienic properties.

2. Disadvantages

1. It is easy to wrinkle, and it is more difficult to heal after wrinkles.

2. Easy to shrink, the shrinkage rate of pure cotton clothing is 2% to 5%, except for special processing or washing treatment.
