Evaluation of Touch and Durability of Cotton Knit Fabrics Treated with Reactive Urethane-Silicone Softener
A new reactive urethane–silicone softener was developed to provide a soft touch to cotton knit fabrics with improved durability to washing and dimensional stability. The reactive urethane–silicone
Reactive Dyeing of Electrospun Cellulose Nanofibers by Pad-steam Method
Based on the functional properties of electrospun cellulose nanofibers(CNF), scientists are showing substantial interest to enhance the aesthetic properties. However, the lower color yield has
Fibers and Textiles for Personal Protective Equipment: Review of Recent Progress and Perspectives on Future Developments
This article reviews recent developments in fibers and textiles for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) applications. Fibers are grouped into six categories: highly extensible elastomeric fibers,


Novel engineering approach to optimization of thermal comfort properties of hemp containing textiles
Abstract The aim of this research was to investigate the possibilities of producing comfort hemp containing textile fabrics by assembling a pure hemp yarn with other-fibre containing yarn. The plain
Moisture management properties of plain knitted fabrics made of natural and regenerated cellulose fibres
Moisture management is a complicated process which is known to be influenced by a variety of fabric characteristics such as fibre nature (hydrophilic or hydrophobic), porosity and thickness.
Improving the dyeing properties and softness of hemp fabric using chitosan and epoxy modified silicone oil
In order to improve the dyeing depth and softness, hemp fabrics were treated with chitosan (molecular weight less than 10,000, degree of deacetylation 90%) and epoxy modified silicone oil in
Mechanical properties and hand evaluation of hemp woven fabrics treated with liquid ammonia
The effects of liquid ammonia (L/A) treatment on the mechanical properties and hand of 100 % hemp woven fabrics were investigated by the KES-FB (Kawabata Evaluation System for Fabric). Tensile energy
Evaluation of thermal, moisture management and sensorial comfort properties of superabsorbent polyacrylate fabrics for the next-to-skin layer in firefighters’ protective clothing
This research investigated the transport properties (such as thermal resistance, water vapor resistance and air permeability), moisture management capacity and sensorial properties of some knitted
Physical and mechanical characterizations of recyclable insole product based on new 3D textile structure developed by the use of a patented vertical-lapping process
This paper deals with physical properties and compression behavior of new insole structure. This insole is developed based on a new 3D fibrous structure made of recycled polyester nonwoven (110
