Testing of yarn abrasion

G. Krupincová / J. Hatipoglu
Published Online: 2013-03-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/v10304-012-0019-3


There exist a lot of methodologies, which can be used for yarn quality testing. Abrasion resistance and its measurement for raw and sized yarn can help in the judgment of yarn weaving-ability. This article concentrates on the possibility of yarn abrasion expression and testing. Relation among fiber material characteristics, selected yarn structural, and mechanical parameters is discussed and a few experimental results are shown.

Keywords: Structural and mechanical yarn characteristics; yarn abrasion resistance
