Cotton:

Definition:  Cotton is a natural fibre derived from the seeds and oil of the cotton plant.  Cotton plants predominantly grown in the sub-tropics (Peru, North Brasil and the U.S.A.).  The harvested fibres are spun into threads and eventually cloth.

Characteristics:  cotton is tear resistant, hard-wearing, well suited for dyeing processes and very absorbent.  The good moisture absorption qualities make cotton comfortable to wear.  Cotton is also very breathable and is often combined with polyamide.

Applications:  product protection and light mechanical work

Polyamide 

Definition:  polyamide is a chemically derived material, made up of fibres such as nylon and synthetics.

Characteristics:  polyamide fibres are tear- and abrasion resistant, very elastic and do not loose their form.  Polyamide has very low moisture absorption qualities when perspiring.

Applications:  pharmaceutical and electronics industries
