The effect of a durable flame‐retardant finishing on the mechanical properties of cotton knitted fabrics

The effect of a durable flame‐retardant finishing on the mechanical properties of cotton... Some of the basic mechanical characteristics such as tensile, bending, shear, compression, and surface properties of cotton knitted fabrics after a durable flame-retardant finishing, were studied by the objective-evaluation method developed by Kawabata and Niva using the KES-F system.

Abstract

Some of the basic mechanical characteristics such as tensile, bending, shear, compression, and surface properties of cotton knitted fabrics after a durable flame-retardant finishing, were studied by the objective-evaluation method developed by Kawabata and Niva using the KES-F system. In addition, properties such as bursting strength, drape and sewability were studied in order to further explore the influence of this treatment on the fabrics. All treated fabrics were flame-retardant but their mechanical properties showed changes as a result of the above finishing. More specifically, a significant reduction in the bending and shear properties was recorded, which suggests that the flame-retardant finishing primarily affects the above characteristics.
