Polyester Fabric

Polyester is an excellent multi-use fabric which we can recommend for many industrial and commercial applications. The weight of polyester is referred to as the ‘denier’ often expresses as ‘D’ this relates to the thread count and weave of the fabric with a larger number indicating a heavier material. Polyester can be combined with a range of coatings to create technical and high performance fabrics for many applications. These include PVC and Polyurethane coatings which give waterproof and durable finishes.

At Specialised Canvas we stock Polyester in a range of weights and colours. The most common requirements are 500D and 600D, we can also source lighter and heavier fabrics including Cordura finishes for very heavy duty applications.

The end used for Polyester fabrics are extremely diverse and we recommend it to many of our clients for applications including, Bags, Luggage, Canopies, Leisure products & Waterproof covers,
