How to Make a Polyester Suit
The new polyester suits from the makers of the Nike Air Max 1 and Air Max 2 sneakers are made with polyester fabric and polyester melting points that are 2 to 4 times hotter than the melting point of cotton.
The high temperatures create a stretchy material that feels like cotton.
The new polyesters are made in India.
The company is now in talks with the Indian government to export them to the U.S. and elsewhere.
The new Polyester Fabric and Polyester Meltpoint (PPM) Thermal Properties: 1,800°F to 4,500°F (1,200 to 2,800 °C) 2,400°F/1,800 degreeC to 4.5°F (-0.3 to 2°C) Polyester is a durable synthetic fabric made from polyester fibers.
The fiber is composed of the fibres of two different types of plants, the cellulose and the hemicellulose.
Polyesters are generally considered to be a lightweight and light fabric, although they are actually very light at 4,000 pounds per square inch (PSI).
Polymer composite materials are made from nylon, polypropylene and polymethylene terephthalate (PET).
A single layer of polyester is about 10 to 14% polyester.
It is composed mostly of polypropene (35%), polymethylsiloxane (15%) and polyvinyl chloride (10%).
The melting point is 1,300°F.
The polyester has a temperature of 2,200°F, or about 1,200 degrees Celsius.
Because the fabric is so thin, the fabric expands at a faster rate than cotton, which makes it stretchy and not absorbent.
This new polystyrene fabric is not made from the same material as cotton, but instead from polypropylene and polyethylene tester (PET), which is a synthetic material that has a melting point higher than the thermo-resistance of cotton at just 1,000°F and about 500 degrees Celsius, respectively.
While some polyester-based products are lighter, like the Nike’s Air Max1, others are heavier, like Adidas’ Reebok’s Reebo 1.
The material is used in some athletic shoes.
A new polymers composite has become a new material for a number of sports apparel companies, including Nike.
In 2015, Nike said it was working with Indian manufacturer Aakash to expand its reach in India, where more than 40% of the country’s population is Muslim.
“In India, we’ve been using Aakshas new polyethylenimene (PE), which has been the mainstay of our sports apparel in India,” a Nike spokesperson said in a statement.
“We are currently in discussions with Aaksha about further collaboration with them.
PE is a strong, high-performance polymer that is highly absorbent and is used as a replacement for cotton and other synthetics in sports apparel.”
Aakash is based in Bengaluru, India, a city that has been a hub for the manufacture of polyethylenes since the 1980s.
The first Aakashi PE products were produced in 1992.
According to a 2015 report from the Indian National Polyethylenamine Institute (INPI), there were about 15,000 polyethylens produced in India in 2015, with PEs accounting for about 40% and polyesters accounting for the remaining 10%.
