Effect of Protective Clothing Fabrics Characteristics on the Thermal Comfort Properties

Ghada Abdalla lotfy Elkholy [2]


Abstract: This paper focuses on Protective clothing fabrics comfort characteristics that are Flame Resistance, Heat loss, thermal Resistance, Breathability, water vapor resistance, weight and thickness. In this study, Protective clothing consists of two layers outer layer and cloth lining. Will be evaluated for the effectiveness of thermal comfort properties 7 different fabrics will be used100 %Nomex, 50 % Nomex50 %Wool, 100 %wool, 65 % polyester35 %viscose, 100 % microfiber polyester, 50 %cotton50 %polyester and 100 %cotton are tested for thermal Resistance, air permeability, water vapor resistance, weight and thickness. the fabric which have the best properties was used to cloth lining for protective clothing. For the outer layer 100 %Nomex, 50 % Nomex50 %Wool, 100 %wool fabrics were tested for thermal comfort such as flame resistant, thermal Transmittance, heat loss and the fabric that have the best properties was used to make outer layer of protective clothing.
