Analysis of Anisotropic Behaviour of Polyurethane Coated Knitted Fabric
Anisotropic behaviour of polyurethane coated knitted fabrics in elongation to break is described. Although previous studies suggest that coating generally reduces the anisotropy of textile materials, this study shows that polyurethane coating typically increases the anisotropic behaviour of knitted fabrics. Research explains the effect the coating has on knitted fabric. The aim of this study is to analyze anisotropic properties of polyurethane coated knitted fabrics in order to predict their behavior, and get the desired properties of the textile composite.
