End use performance characterization of unconventional knitted fabrics

Abstract

This paper presents a study conducted on the mechnical and functional properties of unconventional knitted structures. The raw materials selected for investigation were basalt single jersey and 1×1 rib, polypropylene single jersey and 1×1 rib, polyester single jersey and 1×1 rib and jute single jersey and 1×1 rib. The mechnical properties like bursting strength and shear strength were studied. The thermal properties of the fabrics i.e., resistance & conductivity were studied vis-a-vis physiological behavior. Electrical and accoustic properties were studied as well. On the basis of the results, the influence of the fabric structure on various property parameters were analyzed. The results indicate that effect of fiber and knitted fabric structure on mechanical and functional properties are significant. It can be concluded that rib fabrics have overall better properties as compared to single jersey knitted fabrics. The aim of this study is to analysis the properties of unconventional knitted fabric for using them in technical applications i.e. composites.
