Teflon Tencel Textile Triacetate
       

Teflon®

DuPont’s trademark for a fluorocarbon fiber with unusually high resistance to chemicals and heat. Used primarily in sewing thread and industrial applications for pump and valve packing, filters, gaskets, protective clothing, and electrical and surgical uses. It is also used as a protective fabric finish.

Tencel (See Lyocell)

The brand name for a man-made, natural fiber called lyocell.

Textile

A generic term whichapplies to any woven or knit cloth. 

Triacetate

A manufactured fiber, which, like acetate, is made by modifying cellulose. However, even more acetate groups have been added to create this fiber. Triacetate is less absorbent and less sensitive to high temperatures than acetate. It can be hand or machine washed and tumble dried, it’s shrink and wrinkle resistant, is easily washed, and fabrics tend to maintain pleat creases and a crisp finish. Used a great deal in dresses, skirts and sportswear where pleat retention is important.
