The present study reports the effect of linear densities and profiles of polyester fibres on the physiological properties of their fabrics. Four different polyester fibre finenesses along with microdenier and four cross-sectional shapes (circular, scalloped oval, tetrakelion and trilobal) were selected to produce two sets of 2/1 twill fabrics; one composed of 100% polyester and the other 67:33 P/V blends. In studying the thermophysiological component of the clothing comfort, heat, air and… 

Thermal and mechanical characterization of novel basalt woven hybrid structures

This paper presents a study conducted on the thermal and mechanical properties of basalt hybrid and nonhybrid woven structures. While designing fabrics for various industrial textile applications,

Ramifications of integrating copper nano on the flow properties of common textiles

ABSTRACT The demand for fabric comfort in common textiles is increasing and is closely associated with transmission properties. In this study, three common cloths namely 100% cotton, polyester-cotton

Thermophysiological Comfort Properties of Nonwoven Fabrics Developed for Apparel Industry.

Durable nonwoven fabrics have been developed that can be used in the apparel industry and the classic example is Evolon®. Beside with other mechanical properties such as tensile and flexural

Thermal and water vapor resistance of the elastic and conventional cotton fabrics

The research focuses on the influence of elastane (Spandex) incorporation in the weft direction of cotton fabrics, and the structural properties (fabric density, type of weave) on the thermal and

Thermal comfort properties of Viloft/cotton and Viloft/polyester blended knitted fabrics

Viloft is a special regenerated cellulosic fiber with a flat cross-section and crenulated surface that maintains air gaps in the yarns that help to improve the thermal properties of the fabrics. This

Thermo-physiological properties of polyester–cotton plated fabrics in relation to fibre linear density and yarn type

AbstractThermo-physiological properties of textiles are crucial in determining the heat and moisture transport from skin to environment and in the assessment of overall wearer comfort. Engineering

Steady-state thermal comfort properties of fabrics incorporated with microencapsulated phase change materials

This study focused on assessing the thermal comfort properties of the fabrics incorporating microencapsulated phase change materials (microPCMs) under steady-state condition. Air permeability and

Comfort-related properties of seersucker fabrics in dry and wet state

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyse the seersucker fabrics from the point of view of their ability to ensure the thermo-physiological comfort. It was investigated how the kind of

Evaluation of Luster, Hand Feel and Comfort Properties of Modified Polyester Woven Fabrics

This paper reports a hollow copolyester fiber modified with polyethylene glycol and sodium-5-sulfo-bis-(hydroxyethyl)-isophthalate, abbreviated as ECDP-H, which has the potential to be a replacement

Effect of loop length and filament fineness on thermo-physiological properties of polyester-cotton plated knit structures

Thermo-physiological properties of fabrics intended for next to skin applications, apparel, and functional wear are related to the heat and moisture transmission properties. A gammet of fiber, yarn,



Improved Comfort Polyester

Thermal transport properties of a series of polyester, cotton, and polyester/cotton blend fabrics were determined in an effort to understand physical basis of clothing comfort. The results indicate

The Effect of Fibre Cross-sectional Shape on Fabric Mechanical Properties and Handle

In order to clarify the effects of different fibre cross-sectional shapes on fabric mechanical properties and handle, polyester ‘Shingosen’ fabrics of different fibre cross-sections were investigated

Effect of Mutual Bonding of Textile Layers on Thermal Insulation and Thermal Contact Properties of Fabric Assemblies

This paper deals with thermal insulation and thermal contact properties of woven fabric assemblies used to produce men's jackets. An important part of the paper is the description of the new

Warm-Cool Feeling Relative to Tribological Properties of Fabrics

When the human hand touches a garment that is at a different temperature than the skin, heat exchange occurs between the hand and the fabric, and the warm-cool feeling is the very first sensation.

Fiber Properties Responsible for Garment Comfort

Numerous articles have appeared in the literature on such factors involved in garment comfort as moisture porosity and wickability. However, the only way to determine the relative importance of such

The Effect of a Grooved Hollow in a Fibre on Fabric Moisture- and Heat-transport Properties

It is shown that polyester fibres are able to absorb water more easily by making a grooved and/or a non-grooved hollow in a fibre. The effect of water absorbency becomes larger with an increase in

Surface Wetting Characteristics of Cellulosic Fibers
