Abstract:

The smooth and compact shape of filament yarns differentiate them from natural fibres, and this regular characteristic of synthetic fibres affects the handle and thermo-physiological properties of the fabrics. The properties of filament yarns are improved by the texturing process, which provides crimp, bulkiness and entangled effects. In this study, the thermo-physiological properties of interlock knitted fabrics produced with air-jet textured, false-twist textured and non-textured filament PES yarns have been compared by using the Alambeta instrument. In addition, the cover factor and air permeability of the fabrics were determined, and the surface characteristics were compared by using scanning electron microscope.
