What is the fiberglass sunscreen fabric and polyester sunscreen fabric?
The fiberglass sunscreen fabric and polyester sunscreen fabric, which can be fiberglass or polyester, is used both in roller blinds, vertical blinds and Japanese panels and the usual questions asked by users are which one is best for me? And what differences are there between them?
Basically, there is no difference between the fiberglass sunscreen fabric and polyester sunscreen fabric from an aesthetic point of view, since the two fabrics are PVC coated, the two fabrics have the same finish and appearance.
The difference is mainly in the composition of both fabrics, the threads that make up the fabrics will vary the opening factors from 1% (low visibility) to 3% sunscreen fabric (medium visibility) or 5% sunscreen fabric (high visibility) and 10% sunscreen fabric (higher visibility).
What is fiberglass?
GLASS FIBER IS A MINERAL FIBER (composed of boron and alkali-free silicate), inert and without synthesis processes to obtain it, which prevents any alteration due mainly to the effect of sunlight.
The fiberglass has a recovery of the dimensional properties of 100% before any action, since until 1200ºC its fusion process does not start being a good thermal insulator because it is a mineral fiber.
In order to be used as a fiberglass sunscreen fabric for the manufacture of roller blinds, vertical blinds or Japanese panels, it must have resistance to moisture, abrasion, winding, unwinding and folding. For this purpose, PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is used, which covers the thread and is also resistant to high temperatures. The way to cover the fiberglass thread with PVC is done by induction.
What is polyester Sunscreen fabric?
POLYESTER IS SYNTHETIC PVC coated by induction. It has good behavior when it comes to being used for roller blinds, vertical blinds or Japanese panels.
As we have previously commented with the naked eye, polyester sunscreen fabric is the same, UNITEC advice is whether to place either a roller blind, a vertical blinds or a Japanese panel in a room where the sun comes in a lot, decide on one with FIBERGLASS as it is more insulation and one of POLYESTER in places where the sun does not hit hard throughout the day.
THE MAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FIBERGLASS SUNSCREEN FABRIC AND POLYESTER SUNSCREEN FABRIC ARE:
They are thermal insulators of both heat in summer and cold in winter.
There are a variety of colors and textures. They are hygienic and antiallergic dust repellent.
They are easy to maintain, cleaning is carried out simply with a damp cloth.
Fireproof certificates of the fiberglass sunscreen fabric and polyester sunscreen fabric is m1 AND NFPA701
High visual comfort limits light discomfort through different opening factors in natural light.
