Abstract:

An experimental set up was developed to evaluate the role of the water jet inclination angle during the hydroentanglement process. Hydroentangled bicomponent nonwoven fabrics were made using the inclined water jet apparatus designed. The effects of water jet inclination angles are discussed and evaluation was made on the basis of the fabric tensile strength. The experimental results revealed that the use of inclined water jets increases the fabric’s tensile strength. An inclination angle of 10 degrees was the optimum, showing higher tensile strength for all nonwoven fabrics tested. These results confirmed that with an optimum water jet inclination angle in the hydroentanglement process, the fabric’s tensile strength can be improved.
