Polyester is synthetic plastic fibre made from crude oil. In chemical terms, it is a polymer that can be processed into many different materials. Thanks to its chemical flexibility, polyester is lightweight, dries quickly, does not shrink and has the highest levels of tear and abrasion resistance.
Polyamides are plastics that are synthesised and can be used to produce man-made fibres as a result. In addition to their toughness, polyamides are known for their form stability, tear and abrasion resistance and waterproof qualities. Polyamides are also elastic, very stretchy and high gloss.
Polypropylene is a thermoplastic material. The key qualities of polypropylene include very high breathability, stretchability and good moisture transport as well as a relatively high level of dynamic strength.
Cotton is a natural fibre harvested from the seed fibre of the cotton plant. Unlike plastic fibres, cotton is highly absorbent and is more subject to tearing when it is wet than dry. It is particularly skin friendly, heat resistant and durable.
Elastane is an especially stretchy chemical fibre that is also highly elastic. It can be spun as filament yarn and made into textile products. Elastane is characterised in particular by its extreme stretchiness, tremendous breaking length, permanent shape retention and very low weight.
