Compression behaviour of hand-tufted carpets: Part II—Effect of cyclic compressive load

Choubisa, Bhavna ; Sinha, S K; Chattopadhyay, R

Abstract

The effect of cyclic compressive load on compression characteristics of wool and acrylic hand-tufted carpets has been studied. Wool carpets exhibit higher compression and recovery than the acrylic carpets with similar construction. Compression and matting decrease with an increase in pile density. Percentage recovery of the carpets is found to increase with increase in the number of compression cycle.
