You’ve likely never seen one like this…

Greetings, just before we enter all that … I must give you the overview of what we’re getting into in this segment now.

Our 3 stories detailed out below are from three different authors, who come from three super-different ideals, and no love is lost between these guys. To say they do not get along is a serious understatement, okay?!

Finally, let’s get into it!

My precious scholars! seat belt webbing 2 inch
is certainly on my brain, and today I (Roger Howard, of course!) bring you still one other very-nearly-brilliant report on cargo webbing my intention being to serve you with a number of awesome reads and connect you with some great resources.

And you’ve in all probability never come across one like this … because when it comes to nylon-competitors, these author show up from very different backgrounds.

I’m referring to more than just ill-tempered debates. The guys in this situation are NOT colleagues. In fact, you’ll soon see exactly how their styles are driven by various business needs, and are written from wildly different business goals.

I tuned into this due to the fact that one of the authors was actually my answer man back then when I initially got out of university. So if quite possibly you have enthusiasm in political gossip and insider news, then connect with me on Linkedin and I’ll share all the gory details.

Yep, high stakes, high stress, business things focused on manufacturing drive things like this:

Article #1: History Of Fibre Development
By Gaurav Doshi

Different kinds of fibres are available now-a-days. These fibres are mainly divided into two categories natural and man made. They are also categorized by the generations as they were produced in the different years and known as first generation, second generation, third generation or fourth generation fibres.

The fibres generated first were the natural fibres. In this category cotton, wool, silk and all other animal and plant fibres are included. These fibres were introduced first 4000 years back but their uses were continued till 1940. All these fibres are known as first generation fibres. Very delicate handling is needed for these fibres. Fibres like silks and cottons have not good resistance against moths, wrinkles, wear and washings. So discovery of durable fibres was a greater need and about one century ago first synthesized fibres Rayon/Nylon were produced. These fibres are cheaper in comparison with natural ones. The development of these new fibres opened up fibre application to the various fields like medicine, aeronautics, home furnishing and modern apparels. Fibre engineers produced many new fibres by combining new synthetic fibres with the natural ones.

In the year 1664 the first attempt was done to make artificial fibre, but success was achieved after 200 years only. A Swiss chemist Audemars first patented artificial fibre in England in 1855. He produced that by dissolving the fibrous inner bark of the mulberry tree and produced cellulose by modifying it chemically. He made threads from the solution by dripping needle in the solution and then drawing them out. His attempt was good but he could not copy the silkworm. He had done experiments with the solution similar to Audemars solution.

French chemist Hilaire de Chardonnet was the first one to produce artificial silk commercially in the year 1889. Later on he was known as father of rayon industry because he was the first to produce rayon commercially on large scales.

All the attempts of producing artificial silk failed till the year 1900 but in the year 1910 Samuel Courtaulds and Co. Ltd, formed the American Viscose Company and did production of rayon.

Arthur D. Little of Boston made a film from acetate which is a cellulosic product in the year 1983 and in the year 1910 Henry Dreyfus and Camille made toilet articles and motion picture film from acetate in Switzerland. In the year 1924 Celanese Company made fibre from the acetate and it was the very first use of acetate in the textile industry. At that time the demand of rayon was high because it was available on the half of the price than raw silk to the textile manufacturers so U.S. rayon production flourished to meet those higher demands.

About Nylon

The miracle fibre called Nylon was invented in the September 1931 at the research laboratory of DuPont Company. They saw giant molecules of these polymers when they were working on Nylon ’66’ and Nylon ‘6’.

Nylon is completely synthetic fibre obtained from petrochemicals and is very different from Rayon and Acetate which are made up of cellulosic material of plants. The discovery of Nylon started a new era of manufactured fibres.

A change in life style

In the year 1939 commercial production of nylon was started by DuPont. In the very beginning on the experimental basis they used nylon in parachute fabric, in women’s hosiery and in sewing thread. Nylon stockings were firstly visible to the public at the San Francisco Exposition in February 1939.

At the times of war, Asian silk was replaced by nylon in parachutes. The other uses of Nylon are in military supplies, ponchos, tyres, ropes, tents and in the high grade paper to make U.S. currency. At the time of war cotton was the most commonly used fibre and its uses were more then 80% than any other fibres. Another 20% is shared by wool and other manufactured fibres. August 1945 was the time of ending of war, at that time cotton shares 75% of the fibre market and rise of 15% was seen in the market of manufactured fibres.

Who could say no to a quick tour of polyester’s unusual start?

Yes indeed, this is your commercial fabrics guy, and I have yet another compelling textiles post to lay on you. For those who’re new: Hello! Roger Howard here, I’m your intrepid author, eager to get into all we’ve found today.

1.5 inch seat belt webbing (webbing material) is what we’ve worked on all these years, so it may seem odd that I only found two topics of interest today: polyester manufacturer and strap polyester.

Before I go too far — let me explain — today’s insights come from experts’ posts that my assistant and I uncovered in our morning surf of the web. In fact, the information we found today will be of great interest to those who love posts with lots of details in the scientific arena.

Let me be honest, my friends, we have even more to share on our main site. When you’re ready for better details, take a peek here:

Hey, do you prefer to watch videos? No problem! I’m building a list of relevant videos that will give a bit more depth and insight to commercial fabric manufacturing processes, and plan to include those in my posts in the coming days. To be honest, I prefer the written word (because I like to study this type of material line by line, and take notes on how I’ll add new options for our clients’ real-world webbing applications!).

Without further delay, here is what I am eager to share today. This article provides great background and insight to the science behind narrow fabric seat belt web:

Yes… our team first shared this detailed history on our Blogspot account, so feel free to visit our site and read that real version from which this came.

More Than A Century Ago Polyester Came Into Our Lives

A strong woven fabric was needed by the industrial corporations at the turn of the century. The demand was loud and clear for a product based on a versatile component that could be reliably used in manufacturing and cargo transportation.

Today we know that most modern webbing is made of synthetic fibers such as polyester, but try to remember that is was not always that way. Cotton webbing and wool webbing used to be quite common. However, growing industries cried out for webbing that was both light and strong, with high breaking strengths suitable to all their needs.

Science and technology opened a door to a new molecule that clearly met all the needs of the market.

Polyester industry dates back in the 1920s when W.H. Carothers was contracted by the U.S. based company E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. to research large molecules and synthetic fibers. The research led to the discovery of nylon fabric. In the 1930s to early 1940s, Calico Printers Association and Co., a British owned company, further studied the work of W.H. Carothers and discovered ethylene, which paved the way to creation of polyester fibers.

E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Co. bought the rights to produce the fiber in the U.S.A. and renamed it Dacron. The company carried out extensive research and came up with different and diverse polyester fibers. The polyester industry has evolved over the years and has many varied uses. There are two types of polyester, namely PET (polyethylene terephthalate), PCDT (poly-1,4-cyclohexylene-dimethylene terephthalate).

Polyester Applications and Uses:

With such a versatile component and foundation, this polyester industry has rapidly evolved, and lead to various and diverse uses for polyester. The applications include the following (of which there are surely dozens more we could add if space permitted):

Garment manufacturers all over the world make use of polyester to make clothes, furnishings, sheets, seat belts, carpets among many other purposes. The blending of polyester with wool and cotton to make unique types of clothing material makes it the preferred choice to many in the garment industry.

Outlined below are some of the qualities that make polyester an ideal choice for cloth making.

1. Tenacious and Durable
Polyester industry manufactures materials that are ideal for rock climbing, sleeping bags, and other outdoor uses. The reason why polyester is perfect for the outdoors is because it is not only durable but it can withstand damp and wet conditions. There are those polyester manufacturing companies that coat the material with water-resistant finishes. As such, for those who love surfing during winter, they use polyester made gear.

2. Insulation Properties
The polyester industry has come up with innovative ways to insulate the polyester fiber during the manufacturing process. They carry out the process by ensuring that they create hollow fibers that keep air trapped inside so that when one wears polyester made clothing, they body temperature warms the polyester clothes and maintains the heat without losing it. Another way to insulate the polyester is through the use of crimped polyester during the filling process.

3. Does not Wrinkle
The polyester industry has grown by leaps and bounds because more people are looking for clothes that do not crease. Polyester is an ideal choice for many since it does not crease and when blended with other materials like wool and cotton, it forms some unique pieces of clothing. The material does not stain therefore many people prefer it for pants, skirts, shirts among many other uses.

Non-fabric Uses Of Polyester

1. Pet Bottles
Before the advent of polyester, bottles were made of glass, but the discovery of polyester gave rise to plastic bottles which are a cheaper version in comparison with the glass ones hence the popular use.

2. Mylar
Many events rarely end without balloons, what many people do not know is that the balloons are made of polyester and aluminum foil.

The polyester industry has given rise to many companies all over the world that are of the substance.

What Does Ethylene Have To Do With Polyester?

Ethylene is a compound derived from petroleum and it is the key component used in the manufacture of polyester.
The process of making polyester is called polymerization; ethylene the ingredient derived from petroleum is used as the polymer.

Processes Required In Creating The Molecule and Its Products

There are four manufacturing processes involved in the manufacture of polyester namely; filament, staple, fiberfill and tow.

1. Filament
During the production of filaments, the strand is made into one long continuous strand.

2. Staple
Staple manufacturing involves cutting of the strands into specific sizes. The process allows for blending with other materials like wool and cotton.

3. Tow
Tow involves combining different filaments closely together.

4. Fiberfill
Pillows, quilts, and other fillings are manufactured using this process.

What Are The Exact Science Processes Used In Making Polyester?

A catalyst is mixed with ethylene glycol and dimethyl terephthalate at a temperature of 150-210 degrees centigrade. The resulting substance is then combined with terephthalic acid. It is allowed to boil at a temperature of 280 degrees centigrade where it forms polyester which is in liquid form. The liquid is allowed to pass through a machine that makes the filaments, tow, fiberfill or staple.

The liquid polyester ribbons are allowed to cool until hard enough. They are then cut into tiny pieces to ensure that no air was trapped in the filament during the manufacturing process.

Melting of the chips is done at 260-270 degree centigrade, and the resulting solution passes through a spinneret which is metallic and has tiny holes. The holes are of various sizes and forms’ depending on what the company is looking to achieve. It is during this process that different chemicals are added for instance those that will make the final product non-flammable.

After the spinning process is complete, the fiber is allowed to dry. Specialized machines do the draw of fiber. The fibers are soft, and it is at this stage that texturing, twisting and other processes take place. The fiber is then packaged into a form that it will be easier to weave it into the desired material.

The manufacturing process of tow is quite different from that of filament that the spinneret machine has smaller holes. The tow fiber that is produced is stored in containers which are specifically for cooling. With technology advancements and the fact that polyester blends easily with natural materials like cotton, wool among others makes it the best choice for many fashion designers.

Let Us Wrap-up Here
The truth is that polyester continues to prove itself to be a light and strong synthetic fiber that continues to open new doors. Especially with the introduction of microfiber in the early 1990s (a polyester fabric that bears the striking resemblance to silk), the polyester industry has no signs of slowing down.

Durability and strength of the material make it a sought after option for many businesses across the globe. Simple things, like the way the woven material can be preshrunk during the manufacturing process makes it a valuable asset to business that require a fabric with consistently non-shrinking properties.
Allergy sufferers love polyester fabric for its non-allergic properties. In fact, many people prefer the material for making quilts, pillows, bed sheets (among other uses) for this target audience that is willing to pay more to get the relief they need in hypoallergenic materials.
