Effect of Microfilament Yarns on The Performance Properties of Denim Fabrics

When efforts for innovation in product design are combined with developments in filament yarn technology, these yarns open different alternatives on behalf of evaluate the textile industry.

From this point of view, usage of filament and multifilament yarn structure in denim sector has been a research subject.

In this study, denim fabrics were designed and produced by using multifilament polyester yarns with seven different filament numbers.

The tensile strength (warp/weft), tear strength (warp/weft), stretch properties, air permeability, stiffness, water vapor absorption and hydrostatic pressure test of fabrics were performed.

Fabric stiffness increase and air permeability decrease as long as yarns have more microstructure through higher filament number.

Moreover, it is foreseen that fabric problems may be experienced in terms of elasticity growth when yarns have higher filament number.
