3D Printing on Textiles: Testing of Adhesion

3D printing on textiles is a possible future application for mass customization of fabrics and textile products. In this paper we investigate three test methods to quantify the adhesion of 3D printed PLA parts to a textile substrate. The first proposed test method is a perpendicular tensile test, the second is a shear test, and the third is a peel test. These three tests are used to characterise the adhesion of a 3D printed shape on six different textile substrates. The test methods are compared and it is shown how they can help in standardizing the research of 3D printing on textiles.
