Denim viewed knitted fabrics are softer, cheaper, and more elastic than woven denim fabrics. Clothes which are produced by these fabrics adapt the body movement easily because of their flexible structure. Since these fabrics are produced with elastomeric yarn, their stretching property is quite high. Definitely, denim viewed knitted fabrics have to withstand to pressure during stretching. This resistance is defined in accordance with the bursting resistances of the fabrics. Therefore, in this study it is aimed to find out the relation between extension and bursting strength properties of denim viewed knitted fabrics. For this purpose eighteen different denim viewed knitted fabrics were produced and their extension and bursting strength tests were evaluated. Extension tests were performed by Titan tester by loop method along both widthwise and lengthwise and bursting strength tests were performed by Truburst tester. Since the bursting resistances of the fabrics are affected by elasticity of the fabrics, the correlation of this resistance and elasticity are investigated in this paper by assessing the test results graphically and statistically.
