Abstract: The effect of fabric weight, needling density and blend proportion of jute and polypropylene fibres on compression properties has been studied. Box and Behnken experimental design has been used to study the individual and interactive effects on compression properties, namely initial thickness, percentage compression, percentage thickness loss and percentage compression resilience of jute-polypropylene blended needle-punched nonwoven fabrics. It is observed that the initial thickness increases prominently with the increase in fabric weight at the level of 40% polypropylene content in fabric. The fabric thickness reduces with the increase in needling density and the effect of fabric weight on initial thickness of the fabric is negligible at the higher level of polypropylene content in fabric. The increase in needling density or fabric weight reduces the percentage compression of jute-polypropylene fabric. The percentage thickness loss decreases with the increase in fabric weight. At higher fabric weight, the increase in needling density decreases the percentage thickness loss, irrespective of blends. The percentage compression resilience of the fabric increases with the increase in polypropylene content in the blend.
