The principal synthetic fibres are polyester, polyamide (nylon), acrylic and polypropylene. Synthetic fibres offer advantages over natural fibres, depending on the fibre type, of low cost, hard wearing, ease of washing and ironing, ready dyeing, and ability to blend for maximum effect. Applications range from everyday clothing to fashion clothing, sportswear textiles and footwear, and high-performance outdoor wear. Polyester staple is used in pillows, carpets, home furnishing fabrics, and automotive fabrics. Aramid fibres are used for fire resistant textiles, bullet and stab-proof jackets, helmets and armoured vehicles.VIEW FULL PORTFOLIO

Fabrics can be either natural or synthetic fibres or a blend of the two.
Natural fibres come from plants and animals, and are generally more environmentally friendly and durable. The natural cellulosic fibres include cotton, viscose and others. These are widely used for various applications including spun yarn, fabrics and textiles. Other uses are as chemical filters, and as fibre-reinforcement composites, due to their similar properties to engineered fibres.
Synthetic fibres are made from chemical compounds and usually cheaper and more easily mass-produced alternatives to natural fibres have a wide spectrum of applications depending on the fibre properties. Synthetic fibres offer advantages over natural fibres, depending on the fibre type, of low cost, hard wearing, ease of washing and ironing, ready dyeing, and ability to blend for maximum effect.CONTACT AN EXPERT
