Polyester web slings are used primarily in conditions where acid is present or a minimum stretch is desired. Polyester is unaffected by common acids and hot bleaching agents, but the material is unsuitable for use in conditions where concentrated sulfuric acid and alkaline are present. Polyester is also unsuitable in locations where temperatures exceed 194° F (90° C). The Stretch of a polyester web sling at rated capacity is approximately 3%.
