During sweating, textile materials would absorption water and then spread. The liquid spreading speed in the textile material would affect the comfort property. In this study, the liquid spreading speed of fabric-foam-fabric plied materials were studied. The plied material is intended to be used in close-to-skin garment such as intimate apparel. Thus, the liquid spreading speed of the material would affect its comfort property. The fabric-foam-fabric plied materials were prepared by plying polyurethane foams (non-laminated and laminated) with different fabrics. Therefore, we reported the liquid spreading speed values of different plied samples and the results were discussed properly.
