Abstract:
The present study was conducted with the objective to know the influence of basic weaves on mechanical properties of union fabrics. Four different yarns of different yarn count viz., cotton (2/40s), polyester (2/150d), silk (8/20d) and viscose (2/40s) were used as weft keeping cotton (2/40s) as warp to produce union fabrics with three basic weaves (1/1 plain, 2/2 twill and 1/3 twill) on traditional handloom at KHDC, Gadag. The developed fabrics were assessed for mechanical parameters like cloth tensile strength, elongation, tearing strength, abrasion resistance and pilling. The results revealed that, the even and uneven twill woven fabrics showed highest tensile and tearing strength compared to plain woven fabrics in all the weaves. Whereas, the weight and thickness loss of samples was maximum among twill weave fabrics compared to plain woven fabrics and plain weave woven union fabrics possessed higher pilling resistance than twills.
