|Title:||Comparison of Physical and Mechanical Properties of Ring and Rotor Yarn Fabrics|
|Authors:||Hari, P K|
|Abstract:||The properties of ring-spun and rotor-spun yarns and of the fabrics woven from these yarns have been compared. The greater bulk (diameter) of the rotor-spun yarn compared to ring-spun yarn resulted in greater crimp, fabric thickness, crease recovery, and air-permeability, Rotor-spun yarn fabrics possessed greater strength and lower elongation than ring-spun fabrics in spite of the lower strength and greater elongation at yarn level. The abrasion resistance of rotor yarn was better than that of ring yarn at both fabric and yarn levels. Water absorption for rotor yarn was greater than for ring yarn but the rotor yarn fabrics absorbed more water than ring fabrics at greater fabric cover. Increase in twist multiplier of rotor yarn reduced its diameter and water absorption. Increase in twist multiplier of weft yarn in fabric reduced fabric thickness and water absorption but increased crease recovery and air permeability.|
