Identification of Given Textile Fibre Sample

Identification of Given Textile Fibre Sample Object: To know about the physical properties of sample. To know about the chemical properties of sample. To identify the type of sample fibre. Atmospheric condition: Wet condition: –   26 ° c. & Dry condition: – 30° c. Difference between wet and dry bulb = 30° c-26 ° c.  […]

Determination of Water Repellency by Spray Tester

Determination of Water Repellency by Spray Tester Introduction:  The merit of a fabric intended for rainwear, wagon covers or tents is judged, amongst other properties, by its ability to keep water out; conversely, when intended for hose pipes or canvas buckets, to keep water in. In another direction, some fabrics must exhibit the ability to […]

Determination of Roving Count and Count Variation by Measuring Drum

Determination of Roving Count and Count Variation by Measuring Drum Theory: – Yarn count: The count of a yarn is a numerical expression which defines its fineness. It means, by yarn count we come to learn about the thinness or thickness of a fibre or yarn. The count of the yarn is the number of […]

Determination of Sliver Count and Count variation by Measuring Drum

Determination of Sliver Count and Count variation by Measuring Drum Theory: – Yarn count: The count of a yarn is a numerical expression which defines its fineness. It means, by yarn count we come to learn about the thinness or thickness of a fibre or yarn. The count of the yarn is the number of […]

Determination of Carpet Thickness by Shirley Thickness Tester

Determination of Carpet Thickness by Shirley Thickness Tester Introduction: Carpet is a floor-covering textile having surface formed from yarns or fibres projecting from a substrate. Fabric thickness is a parameter of fabric which involves handle, creasing, wrinkle resistance, thermal resistance and other fabric properties. A carpet is compressible and therefore it is necessary to specify […]

Fabric Abration Resistance by Abration Resistance Tester

Fabric Abration Resistance by Abration Resistance Tester Introduction: Abrasion is just one aspect of wear and is the rubbing away of the component fibres and yarns of the fabric. It is a series of repeated applications of stress; therefore a capacity to absorb punishment is required to the fibres. Inherent fibre properties such as work […]

Cotton yarn count by Quadrant Balance

Cotton yarn count by Quadrant Balance Theory: – Yarn count: The count of a yarn is a numerical expression which defines its fineness. It means, by yarn count we come to learn about the thinness or thickness of a fibre or yarn. The count of the yarn is the number of such yarns which are […]

Determination of Fabric Crease Recovery by Crease Recover Tester

Determination of Fabric Crease Recovery by Crease Recover Tester. Introduction: Crease is a fold in fabric introduced unintentionally at some stages of processing. Crease or crushing of textile material is a complex effect involving tensile, compressive, flexing and torsional stresses. Crease recovery is a fabric property which indicates the ability of fabric to go back […]

Cotton yarn count by Beesely Balance

Cotton yarn count by Beesely Balance Theory: – Yarn count: The count of a yarn is a numerical expression which defines its fineness. It means, by yarn count we come to learn about the thinness or thickness of a fibre or yarn. The count of the yarn is the number of such yarns which are […]
