History
PET is the most common thermoplastic polymer in the polyester family. The first US commercial polyester fiber production was completed in 1953 by DuPont™ under the name Dacron®. It is the same polymer resin utilized in the plastic bottle industry.  

Composition
PET is produced in a melt spun and drawing process. The three processes utilized in the production of PET fiber are polymerization, melt-spinning, and drawing or hot stretching the fibers based upon their elongation requirements.
