The Evaluation of Physical Property and Manufacturing Process of Functional Warp Knitted Fabrics with Variation of Weft
In recent years, the scientific progress has improved human life quality and changes the concepts of heath and heath care. It has been approved that the bamboo charcoal has various functions, including air cleaning, water purification, deodorization, far infrared radiation rate and anion amount. The bamboo charcoal fiber and bamboo charcoal yarn are applied extensively in the textile industry. In this study, PET fiber was used as warp, and PET fiber, bamboo charcoal nylon fiber and stainless steel fiber employed as weft to weave three groups of warp knitted fabric. The variation of far infrared radiation rate, anion amount concentration, air permeability, water absorption, flexibility of these three groups of fabric were examined. The results indicate that the far infrared radiation rate of these three groups of fabric attained 0.8. The anion amount concentration of bamboo charcoal and bamboo charcoal / stainless steel warp knitted fabrics has reached 490-495. Finally, the air permeability of bamboo charcoal / stainless steel warp knitted fabrics achieved 281 cm3/s/cm2.
