Wicking Behaviour of Woven Cotton Fabrics by Horizontal Method

K. ParveenBanu, S. Lakshmi Manokari

This research seeks to investigate the horizontal wicking behavior of woven cotton fabrics. Cotton yarns of count 60s/9.84 (Ne/tex) for both warp and weft directions were chosen and the reed and pick densities were kept constant while weaving into different weave structures i.e. plain, twill and satin. The woven cotton fabrics were subjected to laboratory tests like fabric weight, fabric thickness and porosity. A new horizontal wicking tester has been developed to examine the wicking behaviour. The woven samples were mercerized and then examined for horizontal wicking behaviour. Satin weave fabric showed maximum wicking behaviour compared to twill and plain structures.

Keywords: cotton fabric, weave structures, porosity, fabric wicking, horizontal wicking
