RPSF importance

4 most important reasons to use RPSF over PSF

The use of polyester has prolifically grown over years for its high environmental resistance compared to plant-based fibers. This synthetic fiber has quickly paved its way in every nook and usage of industries, for its attractively economical and strengthening properties. Be it for its use in the manufacturing of apparel or for its varying use in home furnishings, or as a raw material in numerous processing and manufacturing units, Polyester and its use is ubiquitous.

Polyester Staple Fiber better known as PSF is composed using PTA-MEG and virgin PET Chips. Over the years, the PSF industry has made its mark across the globe. This is because of the highly versatile and unique properties of PSF that its demand for varying applications has only increased. From automotive to home furnishing and textiles, PSF is proven to be an economical and preferential choice over other fibers. 

However, can we conveniently ignore the environmental impact that PSF is making? The production of PSF isn’t merrier for our environment. Simply put, PSF is only increasing the volumes of plastic on this planet. But, what if we say there’s a part to this industry that is committed to improving and sustaining a clean environment? Yes, that is recyclable polyester staple fiber. 


Better acknowledged as RPSF, this staple fiber is made by recycling PET bottles, thereby reducing the footprints of plastic in certain ways from the environment. To simplify, PSF is a virgin staple fiber whereas RPSF is made using recyclable materials. RSPF is as strong, resistant, and tear-proof as PSF. In fact, all those properties of PSF that make it suitable for industrial use are there in RPSF. 

So why are we still stuck with PSF when we can simply do with Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber. Let me draw beneficial points for you to help you make an informed choice.

  • Recycled Polyester Staple Fiber - Monetary benefits.

If money is the base of all final decisions, you are surely going to get benefitted here. 

Recycled Polyester staple fiber is 10-15% cheaper than virgin PSF. 

Now, the market for polyester staple fiber is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4% by 2025. Moreover, its demand across Asia- Pacific regions is increasing for its cheap rates. You can only expect better returns and gains by adapting RPSF. 

  • Increased acceptance.

People across the world especially in developed nations are more conscious about the environmental benefits attached to RPSF. Hence, brands are encouraged to use RPSF as opposed to virgin PSF to create a sense of belongingness for their customer base. 

On the contrary, if we consider developing nations like India, people would still prefer RPSF over virgin PSF because of its cheap price. 

Either way, acceptance of RPSF is gaining prominence and that is the reason enough for you to look at an enlarged market it has to offer. 

  • Environmental benefits.

Each piece of the plastic bottle takes nearly 450 years to decompose. Well, we aren’t in the best of our environmental health. And, it is our responsibility to be a part of something that could help us sustain the environment. 

After all, we cannot expect the government to be the only one correcting what’s wrong with the environment. 100% virgin polyester staple fiber is unreasonable when compared to RPSF. 

We can address the growing needs of PSF and reduce the footprints of plastic from the planet through RPSF. 

  • Helps address the growing needs.

RPSF is cheaper than other fabrics. And, thereby RPSF is the most promising part of the globally rising textile industry. Due to their unique composition, polyester fabrics offer antimicrobial properties offering protection against odor and infections. They are thin and available in variants of designs and colors. Hence, increased attractiveness which would overall contribute to increased demand. This all points towards one obvious fact, i.e. increase in demand for RPSF across Asia Pacific regions, specifically China and India. 

Moreover, if we rely on natural fibers like cotton, we need to rely on climate and temperature that facilitate its growth. However, RPSF can be easily produced in the desired quantity, thereby helping you address business needs effectively.

Conclusively, growing environmental awareness is bound to open avenues of lucrative opportunities for RPSF growth. Its availability is going to be more accessible and people are bound to make a conscious shift from PSF to RPSF. It’s important we do so for the environment since we are here to sustain for long. 

At JB Ecotex, we are committed to the responsibility towards the environment and planet. We can help you reduce your plastic footprints. 

Here's how.  

At JB Ecotex, we have established collection partners in different states that help us get hold of required PET bottles, thereby enabling us to be the leading RPSF manufacturer and exporter.

We buy PET waste, PET bottles, and  PET Flakes to convert them into RPSF. Ours is a zero liquid discharge unit and we manufacture 5000 Metric tones of high tenacity RPSF per month. Moreover, we recycle 6000MT of used water and cold drink bottles.
