Pure stainless fiber products have many excellent properties such as high temperature resistance, resistance to corrosion, high efficient filter etc.. Pure stainless fabrics are getting wider range of application in the field of industrial textiles. The property differences between stainless fiber and common textile fiber made the textile processing of stainless yarn difficult. Based on the testing of dynamic friction coefficient, static friction coefficient, breaking strength and breaking elongation, this paper analyzes the main performance characteristic of stainless fiber and the reasons that makes textile processing difficult. Countermeasures for fabric manufacturing are suggested accordingly.
