Effect of linear density of feed yarn filaments and air-jet texturing process variables on compressional properties of fabrics

Baldua, R K; Rengasamy, R S; Kothari, V K


Effect of filament fineness and process parameters employed in the production of air-jet textured yarns has been studied on the compression and recovery of union fabrics made from air-jet textured yarns as weft and twisted filament yarns as warp. Filament linear density and process parameters such as overfeed, air pressure and texturing speed affect the textured yarn structure and hence fabric properties. The individual effect of filament fineness and process variables in the production of air-jet textured yarn has been studied in terms of potential contribution and normalized regression coefficient on fabric low load compression behavior. Fabric low load compression-recovery behavior has been analyzed in terms of compression parameter, recovery parameter and resiliency. Analysis shows that most dominating factor to explain the low load compression properties of air-jet textured yarn fabric is overfeed percentage, while linear density per filament is most dominating factor affecting fabric resiliency.
