A simple nondestructive method for the quantitative analysis of textile fiber blends has been sug gested. The method requires measurement of moisture regain of the blend and its component fibers. Experimental studies have been made with cotton-viscose, polyester-wool, and cotton-wool blends. For comparison, blends have also been analyzed by known chemical methods. It has been found that, in all cases, moisture regain of the blend can be obtained by linear combination of the moisture regains of…

Adhesion Promotion in Rayon/Nylon Skin/Core Bigeneric Fibers

Results of a severe abrasion test show that FA is an effective coupling agent with adhesion dependent on application conditions, and there was significant interaction between FA concentration and time of FA pretreatment; high concentrations at shorter pretreatment times and low concentrations at longer times gave best adhesion.

Abrasion resistance of rayon/nylon composite fibers

Composite rayonlnylon skin/core fibers have been produced with the objective of combining synthetic and natural fiber properties. Acid etching of the core fiber is examined as a pretreatment to

An Infra-Red Heating Based Fast Method of Moisture Content Measurement and Its Application to Measure Blend Proportion of Polyester-Viscose Woven Fabrics

Moisture content values of plain woven fabrics of polyester-viscose blended yarns were measured using standard conditioning procedures as well as a new method of preconditioning of samples using

Fibre identification and the quantitative analysis of fibre blends

The fibre composition of a textile is a fundamental characteristic in determining the product's behaviour, end use and value. This paper reviews recent developments in the fields of fibre

Processability and Properties of a Rayon/Nylon Composite Fiber

The effectiveness of line speed and coating material feed pressure as control parameters in producing a rayon/nylon sheath-core bicomponent fiber has been studied, and the mechanical and sorptive

Analysis of Some Textile Blends Using Their X-Ray Diffraction Patterns

X-ray diffraction methods were evolved for quantitative analysis of blend compo sitions in cotton/polyester, cotton/viscose, and cotton/polynosic systems. These meth ods compare quite favorably with

The Significant Influence of Bacterial Reaction on Physico-Chemical Property Changes of Biodegradable Natural and Synthetic Polymers Using Escherichia coli

PA and PP fibers, which are Olefin fibers, were theoretically free of physicochemical and topographical changes since there were no functional groups that could trigger the hydrolysis reaction.



Quantitative Analysis of Cotton-Polynosic Blends

A physicochemical nondestructive method for the quantitative analysis of cotton-polynosic blends is described. The method is based on the moisture regain of cotton, polynosic, and their blends. It is
