Abstract:

The paper presents an investigation of the liquid retention capacity of terry fabrics with respect to pile height and impacts/finishing. The terry fabrics used in the experimental work were made from linen or linen/cotton yarns. The pile height of the samples was 6, 9 and 12 mm. The fabrics were effected by various impacts/finishing like macerating, washing with detergent or without it, washing with detergent and softener as well as tumbling procedures. The highest liquid retention capacity (9.598 g/g) was determined for grey linen/cotton fabric with a 6 mm pile height. A significant difference exists in the liquid retention capacity of differently treated fabrics; the intensity of the procedure also plays a role here. The liquid retention capacity of terry fabrics with respect to the tumbling period could be described by polynomial equations.
