How Does Recycled Polyester Fabric Differ from Regular Polyester Fabric?

Ⅰ. Introduction of recycled polyester fabrics

Recycled polyester fabric is the repeated recycling and utilization of many discarded plastic products produced by people's daily consumption. It can effectively eliminate excessive dependence on petroleum resources, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, protect the environment, reduce pollution, and play good environmental protection—energy-saving effect. Resource recovery and recycling are currently prevalent methods used to reduce carbon. Among them, PET bottles (plastic bottles) are recycled into recycled polyester fibres and used in large quantities in textiles. Recycling PET bottles (plastic bottles) with a capacity of 1 litre can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 0.042 kg. Every 20 PET bottles (plastic bottles) recycled can be processed into a T-shirt for summer.

Because it is a new type of green renewable environmental protection fabric, its low-carbon source has significantly saved petroleum resources and protected the ecological environment. Therefore, it is trendy in foreign countries, especially in developed countries in Europe and America. 100% recycled polyester fabrics are widely used in suspenders, shirts, skirts, children's clothing, silk scarves, cheongsam, ties, handkerchiefs, home textiles, curtains, pyjamas, bows, gift bags, sets, Sleeves, fashionable umbrellas, pillowcases, pillows, etc.
As we all know, the yarn of ordinary polyester fabric is made from petroleum. Normal polyester fabric is common polyester, and its chemical name is polyethene terephthalate (polyester), which has good heat resistance and thermal stability. Click to buy recycled polyester fabric China.

Ⅱ. The difference between a recycled polyester fabric and ordinary polyester

Different raw materials:
1. Recycled polyester fabric is re-granulated with recycled materials (polyester bottle flakes, foam materials, etc.) and then drawn into fibres.
2. Ordinary polyester fabrics are made of chemical raw materials PTA and MEG through polymerization and esterification drawing into fibres.
Recycled polyester fabric saves nearly 80% of energy compared to the conventional production of polyester fabrics, which can significantly reduce the amount of oil used. Data shows that each ton of recycled polyester yarn can save 1 ton of fat and 6 tons of water. Therefore, recycled polyester fabrics have positive and vital significance for the sustainable development plan of low-carbon emission reduction.
