Besides being a versatile material it itself, which can be used for many purposes, as we mentioned previously, Polyester Flag Fabric has several distinct qualities that make it so popular:
Durability: fibers made out of polyester are extremely durable, because the material is resistant to many chemicals and typical levels of heat (very high heat can actually damage polyester by “melting” it). It is also resistant against abrasions.
Resiliency: it is renowned for maintaining its shape, this due to the fact that it is not really a stretchy material.
Anti-wrinkle: it is an anti-wrinkling material, which does not really give in to wear.
Resistant to mildew: an issue found in natural fibers, mildew is not a problem for polyester, since it is not just a synthetic material, but it is also hydrophobic.
Hydrophobic nature: this is a key characteristic of polyester, as it makes the fibers able to withstand water due to their very low absorbency.
Easy to wash: this is a very important quality when it comes to clothing and due to polyester being so easy to maintain, since it is generally a machine-washable fabric, it certainly adds to its popularity.
