Abstract

In this study, %100 polypropylene, polyester and cotton knitted fabric samples with various knit types were produced and a large group of heat and mass transfer properties of the samples were instrumentally measured with relevant standards. The results were used to assess the suitability of polypropylene fiber usage in sportswear with comparing to polyester and cotton; for this purpose a totally new approach based on multi-axial graph has been applied. This method provided an easy way of thermal comfort assessment of fabrics considering the contribution of all measured parameters and giving mathematical statements of thermal comfort.

Keywords: Polypropylene, polyester, cotton, thermal comfort
