In our life, the materials of the polyester and nylon were often used in our daily life. These two materials were used for making many products, as lanyards. On the basis of this reason, we should learn to distinguish the difference between the polyester lanyard and nylon lanyard when we need to buy a lanyard. It will help us to find a suitable product. Polyester is a synthetic fiber, which is the raw material of chemical fiber fabrics. Nylon is the first synthetic fiber in the world, which also can call Polyamide. However, the differences between polyester lanyards and nylon lanyards involved three directions as follow:

1. The difference in visual

The polyester lanyards were darker than nylon lanyards. And the polyester lanyards were not soft enough, and it is not easy to fold. The smoothness of the polyester lanyards was slightly worse than nylon lanyards. On the contrary, the nylon lanyards had exhibited a bright color, a smooth surface and good collapse resistance. When we see these two types of lanyards, it will be easier to identify the raw material of them.

2. The difference of the touching

The nylon lanyards were smoother than polyester lanyards. The polyester lanyards were strong, elastic extensible and easy to heal after folding. The nylon lanyards are stiff and easy to transverse deformation. Under the action of the small external force, it can produce the wrinkle. In the same amount of sweat, the nylon lanyards are more hygroscopic.

3. The difference in property

Polyester is a synthetic fiber in one important species, is the trade name of polyester fiber; Nylon is the trade name of polyamide fiber. Polyester lanyards had a better heat-resistant, ironing temperature can be 180℃; The ironing temperature of nylon lanyards should be controlled below 140℃.

From the overall performance, the nylon lanyard’s wearing resistance, stress, colorfastness, and glossiness are better than those of the polyester lanyards. Generally speaking, the cost of the nylon lanyards was higher than polyester lanyards. But actually, the lanyards made by high-grade polyester materials were more expensive than the lanyards made by nylon materials.
