Comments:Putting PTT fiber in the same subclass as PET is misleading. The performance is far superior to PET. In addition as a retailer we have never had a claim ever, which I cannot say about any other fiber. In addition, because PET does and has not performed as well as some other fibers, it has a bad connotation for retail salespeople as well as consumers. Considering that PTT performs so much better then PET it is not only unfair not to give it a new name it is definitely misleading to the consumer. Puyting PTT in a separate subclass will rightfully distinguish it from the inferior PET products.
