Polyester is a versatile fibre, which has excellent properties for automotive webbing and medical webbing applications as well as countless other applications.
The UV resistance of polyester makes it ideal for outdoor use: Outdoor products such as tents and tarpaulins, sails and life jackets requiring durable tapes able to withstand exposure to the elements are an ideal application area for polyester webbing. Polyester tape has the same water repellent and mildew resistant benefits as polypropylene but with the soft, smooth, shiny appearance of nylon.
Polyester is suitable for a wide range of applications, its strength also makes it ideal for industrial or technical products such as safety belts, straps and lashing but also consumer products such as bag straps, sporting goods and pet products.
Polyester webbing is very durable and has a higher tensile strength than Polypropylene. Polyester is similar to nylon but is more durable with greater tensile strength, making polyester webbing ideally suited for situations requiring greater weight-bearing needs and longer durability. Polyester will not stretch when wet, unlike cotton or nylon webbing, which is also an added benefit of using polyester webbing in outdoor and wet environments.
