The difference between rain jacket polyester fabric and nylon fabric
When summer comes, how to choose a light and breathable rain jacket?
1. Polyester --- Polyester Fiber
Also known as POLYESTER, the characteristics are good breathability and moisture absorption. There is also a strong acid and alkaline resistance, UV resistance. Generally 75D multiples of the fabric is polyester, such as 75D, 150D, 300D, 600D, 1200D, 1800D are polyester, the appearance of the fabric darker than nylon, rough.
2. Nylon --- Nylon
Also known as Nylon, polyamide fiber. The advantages are high strength, high wear resistance, high chemical resistance and good resistance to deformation and aging. The disadvantage is that it feels harder. More famous are PERTEX, CORDURA. Generally 70D multiples of the fabric is nylon, such as 70D, 210D, 420D, 840D, 1680D are nylon material, fabric gloss is relatively bright, feel smoother. In general, nylon oxford cloth is used as the bag. The difference between nylon and polyester is the simplest method of combustion. The black smoke of polyester is very prosperous, the white smoke of nylon is used, and the residue after combustion is seen. Pinching will smash the nylon into plastic! The price of nylon is twice that of polyester. Nylon, near the flame that quickly curled into a white gel, melting in the flame dripping and blistering, there is no flame burning, leaving the flame is difficult to continue burning, emitting celery taste, after cooling the light brown melt is not easy to grind . Polyester, easy to ignite, near the flame that is melted down, black smoke while burning side melted, yellow flame, emitting aroma odor, burning ash after the dark brown hard block, with your fingers can be broken.
Another feel will be different. Polyester feels rough, nylon feels a little smoother. Also can use nail scraping, after nail scraping, there is a clear trace of polyester, traces of nylon is not obvious, but this method is inferior to the A method is intuitive and easy to explain
