      polyester staple fiber (POLYESTER staple fiber) is a synthetic fiber with high strength, abrasion resistance, chemical corrosion resistance and good flexibility. It is widely used in textile, automotive, construction and other fields. However, the service life of polyester staple fiber is affected by many factors, which will be analyzed from the following aspects in this paper.

      Firstly, the polyester staple fiber quality and processing technology have an important influence on its service life. Fiber quality includes fiber breaking strength, elongation at break, fiber fineness and other indicators, which determine the durability and carrying capacity of the fiber. If the quality of the fiber is unqualified or the processing technology is improper, it is easy to lead to problems such as fracture and fracture deformation during the use of the fiber, which affects the service life.

      Secondly, the use conditions of polyester staple fiber are also important factors affecting its service life. Conditions of use include environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, light, and physical factors such as the force of use and the size of the impact load. The aging and deformation of polyester staple fiber can be accelerated in high temperature and humid environment. Long-term exposure to sunlight will change the color and decrease the strength of the fiber. Excessive force and impact load may also cause fiber breakage.

      Third, the surface treatment of polyester staple fiber will also have an impact on its service life. Surface treatment mainly includes physical treatment and chemical treatment in two ways. Physical treatment is generally through mechanical polishing, singeing and other methods to improve the surface quality of the fiber, improve the wear resistance and bearing capacity of the fiber; Chemical treatment is mainly coated or soaked by additives or solutions to increase the flame retardant, light resistance and other properties of the fiber and extend the service life.

      Fourth, the washing and maintenance of polyester staple fiber will also directly affect its service life. polyester staple fiber Polyester staple fiber has good abrasion resistance and washing resistance. However, incorrect washing methods may cause fading and deformation of the fiber. To maintain the original properties of polyester staple fiber, correct washing instructions should be followed, appropriate washing solution and procedures should be selected, bleach and strong acid washing solution should be avoided, excessive scrubbing and excessive drying should be avoided.

      Finally, the use environment of polyester staple fiber will also affect its service life. polyester staple fiber may be affected by mechanical factors, thermal expansion, thermal contraction, oxidation, light, moisture and other factors under different operating conditions. For example, under high temperature environment, physical properties such as strength and elongation at break of fiber will change, resulting in shortened service life; In humid environment, the fiber is easy to absorb water and expand, which affects its shape stability and tensile properties.

      To sum up, the service life of polyester staple fiber is influenced by many factors, including fiber quality and processing technology, use conditions, surface treatment, washing and maintenance, and use environment. In practical applications, it is necessary to select high-quality polyester staple fiber raw materials, adopt appropriate processing technology and surface treatment methods, and rationally control the operating conditions and maintenance methods to extend the polyester staple fiber service life.
