Abstract:

The properties of wool fabrics desired can only be achieved if appropriate finishing processes are carried out. Decatising is a part of wool finishing processes increasing the fabric surface properties of fabrics. In this study, high pressure decatising process was applied to semi-decatised woven wool fabrics. Surface properties (coefficient of friction, mean deviation in the frictional force, geometric roughness) of the fabrics were measured by KESFB4, and the friction coefficient of the fabrics by means of a Frictorq test machine before and after application of the high pressure decatising process. The effect of high pressure decatising on the fabric surface properties of wool and wool blend fabrics was analysed. It was concluded that high pressure decatising process had a healing effect on the fabric surface properties, and also the coefficient of friction and surface roughness values decreased.
