Engineering Apparel Fabrics and Garments (Woodhead by J Fan, L Hunter

By J Fan, L Hunter

As purchaser calls for for particular attributes of their textiles bring up and international festival intensifies, it is vital that the unearths methods of engineering convinced functionality standards into textiles and clothing. This booklet experiences how materials and clothes could be engineered to satisfy technical functionality and different features required for the explicit end-use. Chapters start with cloth and garment deal with and making - up functionality, through put on visual appeal concerns, corresponding to wrinkling, pilling and bagging. additional chapters contain cloth and garment drape, longevity similar concerns, in addition to physiological and mental convenience. Key themes of fireplace retardancy, waterproofing, breathability and ultraviolet safeguard also are mentioned. Written through hugely distinct authors, this can be a useful publication for a variety of readers within the cloth and clothing industries, starting from cloth and garment brands, designers, researchers, builders to purchasers.

Example text

In the case of wool it is the fibres coarser than 30 μm that are mainly responsible for the sensations of prickliness and scratchiness. Research has indicated that as long as the percentage of fibres coarser than 30 μm is lower than 5%, the level of prickliness will normally not be unacceptable, although certain persons are more sensitive to fibre/fabric prickliness. Micro-fibre fabrics will tend to be very soft and smooth, even limp. 4. 2 of Morton and Hearle91) and to a lesser extent on chemical (softening) treatments applied to the fibre and fabric.

Fusible tape can be used to stabilise fabrics with excessive extensibility. 28 Inadequate warp formability necessitates refinishing of the fabric to increase warp extensibility. For wool fabrics, hygral expansion, relaxation shrinkage and extensibility are often related. 28 This property is related to fabric handle. 30 It was also found30 that the higher the compression, the greater the difference between the static and dynamic friction tends to be. 31 found that fabric properties, such as bending, thickness and compressibility, affected the relationship between fabric surface friction and subjectively assessed handle (touch).

Behera and Mishra43 found that singles wool and wool blend yarns had higher THV than 2-ply yarns for both winter and summer applications, due to lower (easier) compressibility and bending rigidity giving higher softness and fullness. 6 Effects of fabric properties Essentially, the handle of a fabric is related to its bending, shear stiffness, bulk compressibility and surface friction properties while its prickliness is mainly a function of the fibre buckling force (a function of fibre bending stiffness and length, see Chapter 8), with surface friction of secondary importance.
