Silicone coated polyester fabric combines the following properties:
- Silicone has excellent dielectric properties. It has excellent resistance to heat, cold, chemicals, ozone, UV and aging. Silicone is non-stick, neutral and non-toxic (it does not corrode or corrode the products with which it is in contact).
Limitations: contact with petroleum derivatives, ketones, chlorinated, aliphatic or aromatic solvents, concentrated mineral acids. Low mechanical properties.
- Polyester is a synthetic fiber that ranks first in the world in terms of production. It is a linear polymer whose mass includes mostly (80% minimum) ester functions and terephthalic acid. Polyester yarn is light and flexible. It is resistant to ultraviolet radiation. Polyester is hardly inflammable. It softens around 245°C, and melts around 250°C. It retains a good shape memory and can therefore be used in the composition of crease-resistant fabrics. In addition, an adequate weaving also allows a good evacuation of heat.
