Abstract

This research work aims at investigation of mechanical and moisture properties of fabrics made from bamboo and microtencel fibres.Woven fabrics made from these fibres were evaluated for mechanical properties such as tensile strength and elongation and moisture properties such as water vapour permeability,wicking.The. results indicated that 100% bamboo fabric showed very good water vapor permeability. Fabric wicking was similar in all samples. Tensile tests (warp way) conducted on all the 5 samples revealed that 100% bamboo fabric yielded the lowest strength and 30:70 bamboo: tencel blended fabric yielded the highest fabric strength. Tensile tests conducted in (weft way) for all the 5 samples revealed that 100% bamboo has lowest strength and 100% Tencel had the highest strength. The material for research will include natural, regenerated and synthetics fibers such as cotton, viscose, modal, tencel, bamboo and polyester of both conventional and micro denier. This fiber will be made into yarn using ring and open end spinning method. The yarn will be converted into woven and knitted fabric using different woven and knitted structures suitable for use in apparel. The fabric will be treated with different types of plasma gases, dyed and finished. The fabric will be tested for thermal and moisture properties using of thermal and moisture testers and will be evaluated for thermal resistance and water vapor permeability in addition low stress mechanical properties for studying apparel comfort. The result thus obtained will be very useful to textile/apparel manufacturing industry
