Physico-Mechanical Properties And Application Of Man-Made Fibres


Contact wetting angles have been determined on complex twisting viscose, polyamide, and polypropylene yarns by the method of measuring a drop resting on the yarn.

It has been found that the type of yarn, its linear density, and the twist angle affect the magnitude of the contact wetting angle.
