Polyester is a category of polymers that contain the ester functional group in their main chain. As a specific material, it most commonly refers to a type called polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Polyesters include naturally occurring chemicals, such as in the cutin of plant cuticles, as well as synthetics through step-growth polymerization such as polybutyrate.
Natural polyesters and a few synthetic ones are biodegradable, but most synthetic polyesters are not. This material is used very widely in clothing. DryVent® fabrics are engineered to be fully waterproof, windproof and breathable.The outer face of the textile is treated with a durable water repellant finish that helps form droplets and repel water from the surface. Each multi layered textile is engineered to allow water vapor to pass through from the inside to the outside.
DryVent® fabrics using a 2 Layer construction are our most versatile and used across all our categories. These fabrics are designed into clothing and accessories that are normally lined with a secondary fabric for extra comfort and increased warmth. These lined products can also be designed with fixed insulation for ultimate warmth and versatility and can be found in a wide range of looks and finishes. The DWR treatment is the first line of defense against wet weather conditions and prevents the face fabric from becoming saturated. DWR is a polymer applied to the face fabric that creates microscopic pegs, or hairs, that protrude from the fabric.
These pegs encourage the water droplets to band together and roll off, instead of spreading out along the face of the fabric and soaking through.
