In general, the fabric with a multiple of 75D is polyester, such as 75D, 150D, 300D, 600D, 1200D, 1800D are all polyester, and the fabric is darker than nylon.

Nylon sewing thread is also called Nylon sewing thread and Nylon, polyamide fiber.

The advantages are high strength, high wear resistance, high chemical resistance and good deformation resistance.

The disadvantage is that the hand feels harder.

In general, the fabric with a multiple of 70D is nylon, such as 70D, 210D, 420D, 840D, 1680D are all nylon material, and the luster of the fabric is bright and the handle is smoother.

Generally speaking, it is made of nylon Oxford cloth, the difference between nylon and polyester is the simplest is the burning method!

Nylon is twice as expensive as polyester.

Nylon, close to the flame that is quickly curled fused white colloidal, melt dripping and sparkling, in the flame burn without fire, leave the flame burning hard, sends out a celery flavour, beige molten material not easy pulverization after cooling.

Polyester, easy to ignite, near the flame of the melting, burning when the melting edge of the black smoke, yellow flame, emitting aromatic smell, burning the ashes of the black brown hard block, with fingers can be broken.
