Do You Consider Sublimation Polyester Fabric?

  • 1926: American scientist Wallace Carothers first discovered that alcohols and carboxyl acids could be mixed to create synthetic fibers. Unfortunately, his work on sublimation Polyester fabric was temporarily shelved to focus on nylon.

    1939: British scientists John Winfield and James Dickson continued Carother’s work. By 1941, they patented polyethylene terephthalate (PET or PETE), which would form the basis for synthetic fibers like Dacron and Terylene. In the same year, with the aid of W.K. Birtwhistle and C.G. Ritchie, Winfield and Dickson created the first polyester fiber, Terylene, under the manufacturer Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI).

    1946: American conglomerate DuPont purchased all of the legal rights from ICI. In 1950, they produced the polyester fiber, Dacron, and in 1952, Mylar.

    1951: Polyester was first introduced to the public as a miracle fabric that could be worn, pulled, and washed without any wrinkling or signs of wear-and-tear.

    1958: Eastman Chemical Products, Inc developed the polyester fiber, Kodel. At this time, polyester was experiencing fervent popularity. Textile mills exploded around the country as many were eager to reap the benefits of producing this inexpensive yet durable fiber.

    1970s: The polyester industry continued to expand rapidly until the 1970s, at which time the fiber developed the ill reputation as a cheap fabric that was uncomfortable to wear. While polyester remains an effective, durable, and inexpensive fiber, its reputation in the clothing industry has suffered. Fortunately, the material also has many other important applications.
