Discover the 5 Myths Sabotaging Your Hiring Strategy

Industry Overview

Polyester fabrics hit their first peak in the 1970s with popular polyester suits. Though those fashions quickly faded, polyester has recently seen a resurgence thanks to the advent of microfibers. While polyester was one incorrectly thought to be cheap and uncomfortable, these microfibers have allowed the creation of fabrics that are so smooth they are virtually indistinguishable from silk.

Although fabric might be the first thing most people think of when they hear ‘polyester’, there are a variety of other applications for this durable plastic from computer mouse pads to car tire reinforcement. In fact, the most prevalent use for this material is PET plastic bottles, which offer portable, shatterproof protection for sodas and other beverages.
