Abstract:

In this study, the moisture management properties of plasma treated single jersey knitted fabric with different types of polyester yarns: spun polyester, continuous filament yarn and micro denier yarn with different linear densities were analysed and investigated. The moisture management properties of the same were measured using a moisture management tester. The results of the treated and untreated single jersey fabric were tested for their wetting time, absorption rate, maximum wetted radii, spreading speed, and overall moisture management capacity . It was observed that for the plasma treated fabrics, the time taken for wetting and the absorption rate of spun polyester are faster. Continuous filament polyester shows the maximum wetted radii, and the spreading speed and overall moisture management capacity (OMMC) of spun polyester significantly increases when compared with untreated fabrics. The plasma treatment significantly improved the overall performance of polyester fabric.
