Polyester Fiber

Non-wovens

Advantages of polyester. The Richfibe® difference.

Richfibe® from Carpenter Co. has many advantages over non-polyester materials.

First, it’s readily available, relatively inexpensive, and easy to process through most types of non-woven machinery.

Second, it’s extremely versatile. It ranges from very soft to very firm.

Third, it’s more durable. Polyester absorbs less than one percent of moisture by weight, offers good dimensional stability under a variety of conditions, and has unique filling properties.

Fourth, and most important, your customers will love it. Polyester is easy to machine wash and dry clean. It has excellent memory characteristics to retain its shape. And unlike natural fibers, Richfibe® polyester is non-allergenic and doesn’t promote the growth of bacteria. What’s more, it’s recyclable – something everyone can embrace.
