TECHNICAL INFORMATION ABOUT POLYAMIDE

 

(Nylon) and POLYESTER LEGGINGS:

 

First of all, let's say right away, we will not talk about the chemical analysis of both fabric types. This is not our current topic anyway.
When we start to write about the best Leggings fabrics, we think that it is necessary to briefly summarize another subject that is as important as the fabric. So what is this? Of course, it's the elastane in the fabric.
Whether you use Polyester fabric or Polyamide fabric for leggings, if your elastane (Spandex) quality and ratio in the fabric is not suitable, it is not possible to obtain a quality Leggings. Yes, this topic seems like it will take a long time. Then it will be necessary to examine this important issue in detail under another heading.

Polyamide and polyester leggings are very common in terms of fabric quality. The mix of materials you choose is of course very important. Of course, it is valid if the type of fabric on the Leggings label you use is written correctly. Nobody wants a Leggings that starts to deteriorate in a short time, wear and tear. You may want to wear Leggings made of different materials for a hard and challenging sport or for walking on the road.

You need to get a basic idea about the technical characteristics of both fabrics. You need to clarify which fabric type is more suitable for the future of your brand.

 

LEGGINGS MADE WITH POLYAMIDE OR POLYESTER FABRIC:
First of all, it should be noted that both nylon and polyamide actually refer to the same type of fabric.

WHAT ARE THE FEATURES OF POLYAMIDE FABRIC LEGGINGS?

Extremely elastic. So is this really true? Actually not. If the spandex ratio in the fabric is high, it will be flexible. Do not trust the ones that are widely circulated on the Internet and written without much technical knowledge.
It is stain resistant and heat resistant.
It is wear resistant, flexible and durable.
It is easy to clean.
It absorbs moisture and sweats quickly.

Leggings manufactured with polyamide fabric and their negative features:
It has a shiny appearance.
It is not a recyclable, environmentally friendly material.
The fabric color fades very easily under sunlight.

 

FEATURES OF POLYESTER LEGGINGS:


Polyester fabrics (Leggins in this regard) offer much higher resistance to wear and tear, water and damage than Polyamide fabric. In addition, polyester leggings have become very popular due to this outstanding stain resistance of the fabric.
Of course, remember that the flexibility of Leggins made with polyester or polyamide fabrics depends on the spandex ratio in the fabric. Polyester yarns are incredibly durable, strong and strong. As a result, they retain their natural shape for a very long time.

 
MAIN FEATURES OF POLYESTER LEGGINGS:

 

It is stain resistant and heat resistant.
It has low absorbency. Therefore, when you sweat, it quickly transfers the sweat to the fabric surface and keeps you dry.
It is resistant to fading and bleaching.
It is environmentally friendly.

 

IN CONCLUSION, COMPARISON OF POLYESTER AND POLYAMIDE LEGGINGS:

It is clear that polyester fabric is the better choice because of its hydrophobic properties. This is one of the most important reasons why polyester is preferred over Polyamide fabric. For the advantage of moisture (keeps your sweating under control) management.

Polyamide, on the other hand, has more water absorption compared to Polyester fabric. This means you may feel cooler if your Polyamide leggings get wet. Because the fabric will stay wet for much longer. However, when damp or wet, the Polyamide fabric inhibits breathability. The other fabric that prevents breathability when damp and wet is Cotton fabric.

 

MOISTURE and Sweat ABSORPTION CAPACITY:


Which leggings dries faster when you sweat a lot after a strenuous workout? In response to this, of course, there will be Polyester leggings. Polyester fabric throws water onto its surface to encourage faster evaporation. Unfortunately, polyamide fabric is among the fabrics that absorb water. Therefore, it will take much longer to dry after getting wet.
This is the main reason why we manufacture training, yoga and walking leggings using polyester fabric, not nylon.

 

ABOUT THE COLOR QUALITY OF THE FABRIC IN POLYESTER AND POLYAMIDE LEGGINGS:


Polyester leggings provide much clearer and higher quality color stability and precision. Because the dye used for the color dissolves in the fabric and becomes fully integrated with the fabric. Quick discoloration of polyamide leggings is a common complaint. The reason for this is that the polyamide fabric is not of high quality during dyeing and does not have color stability. In the leggings made by using a mixture of polyester and elastane, there is no immediate color fading as in the polyamide and elastane leggings.

 

ABOUT PRINTING SYSTEMS ON POLYESTER AND POLYAMIDE FABRIC LEGGINGS:


Polyester fabric is a superior choice in terms of withstanding high heat. This is why polyester leggings hold up prints much better than nylon. Especially, this detail is very important when you apply your brand logo using a printing system such as flexo.

 

ABOUT POLYESTER AND POLYAMIDE FABRIC SOFT FEEL:


In the past, Polyamide fabric had a softer touch than polyester fabric. But this is no longer valid. Thanks to the developing manufacturing technologies, Polyester fabric is produced as soft as Polyamide fabric.

 

DURABILITY :


Polyester fabric is stronger in pilling resistance. In addition, it has superior technical properties compared to Polyamide fabric in terms of general durability.

 

CONCLUSION :
