Nine, polyester embroidery thread

The characteristics of polyester embroidery line are able to withstand chemicals and often wash clothes, reducing the phenomenon of clothing fading and decolorization, so many hotel uniforms, and some stone ground blue jeans, sportswear or some children's clothing will be made of polyester. In general, polyester thread is tougher and stronger than rayon embroidery thread. When embroidering, the polyester thread can withstand the higher tension of the embroidery machine, which can make the machine run faster; And its fire resistance is high, even if the polyester is close to the flame, it is not easy to catch fire.

The thread of polyester silk is not as stable as that of rayon, because the composition is polyester fiber silk, so it will be more elastic. We can cut the rayon thread to do the experiment, pull the thread with a little force, and then let go, we will find that the embroidery thread does not shrink; On the contrary, pull the polyester in the same way, once released, the polyester line will return to the original length, so there is a chance to cause wrinkles, so in the embroidery line tension adjustment Settings, need to be more precise.
