The Structure Characteristics and Air Permeability of PA and PES Plain and Plated Knits Influenced of Antimicrobial Treatment Conditions

Textile materials are usually exposed to thermal, physical and mechanical effects during treatment processes. These influence the changes of material dimensions. Designing knitted products it is important to predict direction and rate of dimensions change, because this can affect physical properties...

Designing knitted products it is important to predict direction and rate of dimensions change, because this can affect physical properties such as air permeability of knits. The objective of this research was to investigate the influence of antimicrobial treatment conditions on the structure characteristics, thickness and air permeability of plain and plaited knits. The investigations were carried out with two groups of plain and plated single jersey knits. The face yarns of these groups were cotton, bamboo viscose yarn and polyester (Dacron®) thread. 10 tex × 2 textured polyamide (PA) and 20 tex textured polyester (PES) threads were used as the base threads in plated knits.

The changes of structure parameters, thickness and air permeability were more associated with conditions of treatment (temperature, treatment in solution, mechanical action) rather than with antimicrobial and sol-gel substances used in treatment. <p>DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.5755/j01.ms.20.3.3196">http://dx.doi.org/10.5755/j01.ms.20.3.3196</a></p>http://matsc.ktu.lt/index.php/MatSc/article/view/3196air permeabilityantimicrobial treatmentplain and plated knitknitted structurethickness
