Discuss on Design of Antibacterial Woven Fabrics Involving Silver-Coated Fibers
Design of antibacterial woven fabrics was discussed in view of visual impact and antibacterial activity. Antibacterial yarns can be obtained from blending and combining of silver-coated fibers. Analysis of manufacturing process and cost shows that core-spinning and sirofil spinning are preferable. Core-spun yarns can be used in filling if silver color is not desired. If silver color is desirable, sirofil yarns can be spaced at regular intervals in filling direction.
