Effects of Heat Shrinkage on Structure and Property of Silk/Synthetic Fiber Textured Composite Filaments
The textured yarn was respectively prepared with pure silk, silk/polyester POY composite filament, silk/polyester FDY composite filament by the self-made processing device. The effects of heat shrinkage of polyester fibers on the structure and properties of the textured filaments were investigated. The results revealed that silk/POY composite filament contained higher heat shrinkage. Synthetic fibers produced crimps with larger amplitude and smaller bandwidth, and the textured filaments presented a larger yarn count, resulting in the notable crimped deformation.
