Effects of industrial ironing on mechanical and dimensional properties of cotton,wool and polyester fabrics

Cheriaa, Rim ; Marzoug, Imed Ben; Sakli, Faouzi


The influence of industrial ironing cycle on low-stress mechanical properties and on dimensional changes in three selected weave fabrics has been studied. The experimental results are statistically analyzed using ANOVA. It is observed that the compressional properties measured by FAST system are the most influenced by the process of ironing. Cotton and wool fabrics show much variation in mechanical and dimensional changes compared to polyester fabric.
