1. Different definitions

Oxford cloth, also known as Oxford spinning, is a traditional combed cotton fabric with multiple functions and wide uses, originated in the United Kingdom and named after Oxford University;

Polyester fiber, commonly known as "polyester", is a synthetic fiber obtained by spinning polyester formed by polycondensation of organic dibasic acid and dihydric alcohol, referred to as PET fiber, which is a polymer compound;

2. Different appearance and comfort

Oxford cloth: soft color, soft body, good air permeability, good strength and durability, and easy to wash, product variety and long service life;

Polyester fiber (polyester): high strength, good elasticity, elasticity close to wool, when elongation is 5% to 6%, it can almost completely recover;

Good dimensional stability, good heat resistance; good water absorption; good abrasion resistance, abrasion resistance second only to the best abrasion resistance nylon, better than other natural fibers and synthetic fibers; good light resistance, only light resistance Second to acrylic fiber; corrosion resistance, resistance to bleaching agents, oxidants, hydrocarbons, ketones, petroleum products and inorganic acids, resistance to dilute alkali, not afraid of mildew, but hot alkali can make it decompose; poor dyeability.

3. Different uses

Oxford cloth:

The grid Oxford cloth is specially used to make all kinds of bags;

Nylon Oxford cloth is mainly used to produce flood and rain protection products;

Full-stretch Oxford cloth, Tige Oxford cloth, and weft Oxford cloth are mainly used for making bags;

Polyester fiber (polyester):
Polyester fiber has high strength, high modulus, and low water absorption. It has a wide range of uses as civil and industrial fabrics. As a textile material, polyester staple fiber can be purely spun, but also particularly suitable for blending with other fibers; it can be blended with natural fibers such as cotton, linen, and wool, or with other chemical staple fibers such as viscose, acetate, and polypropylene. Blended short fibers such as nitrile fibers.
