Materials
   Materials of Construction:       
   Your choices are...         
   Synthetic / Polymer       Synthetic products contain petroleum-based polymers and fibers. 
   Natural (Cotton, Wool, etc.)       Natural fibers are made from any of various shrubby plants of the genus gossypium. They are used to make textiles and other products. 
   Acetate / Triacetate       Triacetate fibers contain a higher ratio of acetate-to-cellulose than acetate fibers. Triacetate fibers are shrink resistant and wrinkle resistant, and provide good pleat retention and a crisp finish. Applications include cigarette filters and women's wear. 
   Acrylic / Modacrylic       Acrylic and modacrylic fibers are unique among synthetic fibers because they have an uneven surface. They provide outstanding wicking and quick-drying characteristics, and are chemically resistant, dyeable, and resistant to sunlight. 
   Aramid       Polyimide (polyphthalamide) fibers such as DuPont’s Kevlar® are among the most thermally-stable organic materials. They are lighter and tougher than steel. Applications include protective garments, racing sails, sporting goods, etc. 
   Elastomeric       Elastomers and rubber materials are characterized by their high degree of flexibility and elasticity (high reversible elongation).  They are based on a variety of systems, including silicone, polyurethane, chloroprene, butyl, polybutadiene, neoprene, natural rubber or isoprene, and other synthetic compounds. 
   Nylon / Polyamide       Polyamides, including nylon materials, are available in a large number of polymer structures with varying chemical and physical properties. In general, polyamides are exceptionally strong, elastic, abrasion resistant, lustrous, and resistant to damage from many chemicals. Polyamides are also resilient and low in moisture absorbency. 
   Olefin / Polyolefin       Polyolefin is a broad category which encompasses several specific, linear polymer types, including polyethylene and polypropylene. Polyolefin fibers have a specific gravity below 1.0, a relatively low melting point, and are hydrophobic. 
   Polyester       Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) polymers have a high strength-to-weight ratio and are the most widely-sold manufactured fiber. They are used in all types of clothing and home furnishings, and as a reinforcing fiber in tires, belts and hoses. 
   Polyethylene / HDPE       Olefin fibers that are based on low density polyethylene (LDPE), high density polyethylene (HDPE) and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW PE) have good friction and mechanical properties, but relatively low thermal stability. They are used to reinforce hoses and power belts, and in athletic and automotive equipment. A high-strength, high-density olefin fiber has been developed that is ten times stronger than steel. 
   Polypropylene       Polypropylene fibers are characterized by their resistance to moisture and chemicals. They can be modified with additives, variations in the polymer, and the use of different process conditions. Most polypropylene fibers are abrasion resistant, colorfast, quick drying, low static, chemically resistant, thermally bondable, stain and soil resistant, and UV resistant. 
   Rayon / Lycocell       Rayon, and its newer relative lyocell, feature fibers that are soft, strong, and absorbent. Rayon and lycocell can be fibrillated to produce special textures that provide excellent wet strength and good drapability. Both materials are biodegradable. 
   PVC / Vinyl       Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or vinyl-based fibers soften at low temperatures, but are highly resistant to chemicals. They are most commonly used in industrial applications as a bonding agent for non-woven fabrics and products. 
   Cotton       Cotton fibers are soft, natural fibers that grow around the seeds of the cotton plant. 
   Leather / Hide       Materials are raw or dressed animal skins. Typically, large and heavy skins are used.  
   Hemp       Hemp is a natural fiber made from the plant Cannabis sativa. It is used in cordage, clothing, food products, and composites. 
   Jute       Jute is a natural fiber made from the Asian plants Corchorus capsularis or C. olitorius. It is used for sacking and cordage. 
   Linen / Flax       Linen is a material made from the fibers of the flax plant. 
   Wool       Wool is the the dense, soft, often curly hair which forms the coat of sheep and certain other mammals, such as the goat and alpaca. Wool consists of cylindrical fibers of keratin covered by minute, overlapping scales. Wool is valued as a textile fiber. 
   Glass / Fiberglass       Glass wool is manufactured by the process of blowing air/steam or spinning filaments from a molten mass of sand or glass (glass wool). The resultant fibers are subsequently collected as an entangled matt of fibrous product which exhibit excellent thermal stability and chemical resistance.  Products afford superior thermal, electrical and acoustical insulation properties. 
   Ceramic       Ceramic textiles, ceramic fibers or fibrous refractory thermal insulation products consist of ceramic fibers in bulk, fiberboard, paper or rope forms. Some fibrous ceramic products have an organic binder that burns off in the furnace during end-use application. Other products may include a ceramic or high- temperature binder that forms or remains after exposure to high temperatures. Loose or bulk fibrous and other fibrous insulation products may not have any binders.  Ceramics are hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials made by shaping and then firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, at high temperature. Ceramics usually fracture before plastic deformation occurs. Consequently, failure is usually catastrophic compared to that of metals; however, ceramics have very high compressive strength. 
   Metallic       Metal fibers have a shiny surface, high density, ductility, high melting point, high hardness, and high thermal and electrical conductivity. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary materials.
