Abstract:

The stability of dimensions is a very important factor that depends on fabric structure and final treatment. Fabric shrinkage capacity during laundering also depends on laundering conditions such as water solidity, washing powder, temperature, and mechanical action. The most popular and simple way to decrease the shrinking capacity of single-layer fabric is to increase the density of loomstate fabric. Preliminary investigations showed that the increase in yarn density increases the honeycomb weave fabric shrinkage after laundering, however. The later investigations showed that such contradictory results depend on the specific structure of honeycomb weave fabrics. Therefore, with increases in honeycomb weave fabric density (density or linear density of yarns), the structure of the fabric became more sophisticated than that of usual single layer fabrics – the yarns of the same system go one under another, that is, in some parts of the fabric it obtains the structure of multilayer fabric. The only way to decrease the shrinkage after laundering of fabric of such structure is by stabilisation.
