What is 600 Denier Fabric?

When polyester is labeled 600D, it is a reference to the denier or fineness of the material's fiber. Denier is used to evaluate nylon, silk, polyester and some other artificial fibers. The denier number refers to the weight in grams of 9,000 meters of the fiber in question. Fibers with lower denier numbers are more fine than those with high numbers, and fibers with higher numbers are stronger. However, it is not possible to measure denier across fabrics. In other words, while a 600D polyester fabric is stronger than a 450D polyester fabric, it is not as strong as a 450D nylon fabric, because nylon is inherently a stronger fiber than polyester.

What is Better - Nylon or Polyester?

Nylon and Polyester both have qualities that are desirable for various uses. To determine which fabric is best used for what, one needs to know what the qualities of each fabric are.

Characteristics of Nylon
Nylon is softer and stronger than polyester. It is used by the military to make tents, parachutes and rope, and it is also a common component in carpet. Fabric is synthetic and durable, resists stretching and wrinkling well, and is easy to maintain from day to day.

Characteristics of Polyester
Polyester is more abrasion resistant and water-resistant than nylon, absorbs and holds color better making it fade resistant. Polyester is more often used in clothing, particularly athletic clothing. Fabric is synthetic and durable, resists stretching and wrinkling well, and is easy to maintain from day to day.
