Testing in Eco Textiles

apparel non-apparel Consumers are becoming conscious in regards to green and environmental friendly consumer goods. They prefer products that have no harmful effect to the environment. The trend of green consumerism has been extended to textile and apparel products. Major European and U.S textile buyers have responded to this public awareness by viewing their textile products from ecological standpoint and established certain requirements on textile products by undergoing certain predefined testing procedures.

Weft feeders

fabric weaving Weft feeders are feeding devices, which are also called weft storage feeders or weft accumulators, play an important role in the weaving machines where the weft is unwound overhead from the cone and is subjected to abrupt accelerations due to the drawing-off tension exerted by the insertion element. The balloon which is formed at each insertion can cause coil sliding and snarls, owing to the difficulty of braking adequately the yarn and to the high unwinding speed of the yarn from the cone.

Advantages of Blended Fabrics

apparel Blending of cellulosic fibres with man made fibres to produce fabrics with improved characteristics has long been accepted throughout the world.

Types of Plackets

apparel Plackets are particularly seen in women's garments which have a good fit. They are usually found near the writs, neckline, waist line and other comfort fitting parts of the garment. These are finished openings which are normally kept closed (to have a tight fit) and are opened only while wearing or taking off the garment. Fastneres like zippers, buttons, buttonholes, hooks are used in keeping the plackets closed.

In general, design is arrangementor putting out creative ideas on paper or any of the three-dimensional form.There are different types of designs such as industrial design, graphic design, textile design, fashion design, etc.

Importance of Cutting Room

apparel apparel-making Where large quantities of a garment style must be cut, a lay is created which consists of many plies of fabric spread one above the other. From this, all the garment pieces for all the sizes that have been planned for that lay are cut. The pattern shapes for these garments may be drawn on a paper marker placed on top of the lay, or information as to their shape and position may be held within a computer, to be plotted similarly on a paper marker or used to drive an automatic cutter.

Preparing the Fabric

Polyester Fibres

fiber Polyesters are those fibres containing at least 85% of a polymeric ester of a substituted aromatic carboxylic acid including but not restricted to terephthalic acid and f-hydroxybenzoic acid.

Carbon Fibers

fiber manmade-fiber Carbon fiber is a super strong material that is extremely lightweight. It is five times as strong as steel, two times as stiff, yet weighs about two-thirds less. Carbon fiber is basically very thin strands of carbon (even thinner than human hair). The strands can be twisted together, like yarn and then be woven together, like cloth. To make carbon fiber take on a permanent shape, it can be laid over a mold and coated with a stiff resin or plastic. Carbon fiber can also be defined as a fiber containing at least 92 wt % carbons.
