Abstract

In this study, a new type of honeycomb-patterned micro-porous polyester fibre was used to develop good moisture absorption and quick drying properties of woven fabrics. Details of the development and after-finish processes of the fabrics were illustrated. The water transport, vapour transmission and quick dry properties of the seven different end products were also investigated. It was evident that weaving parameters and after-finish processes are crucial factors in the fabric production process. The final products can also have good water transport and quick dry properties without additive treatment.
