Abstract: An instrumental has been developed for measuring static and kinetic frictional characteristics of staple fibres and fabrics. The influence of fibre length and fineness on static and kinetic frictional characteristics of polyester and viscose staple fibres has also been studied. A comparative study has been carried out to ascertain the difference in frictional forces measured by an attachment fitted with Instron tensile tester. The developed instrument is also used to study the frictional characteristics of acrylic staple fibres at different levels of finish application. A wide variation in frictional characteristics is observed among different varieties of cotton, even within same variety from different place of origin. It is also observed that warp density and fabric thickness have good correlation with static and kinetic frictional properties of both warp-on-warp and weft-on-weft motions.
