The study is focused on the thermal comfort properties of single jersey materials. Three types of fabric blends, viz. polyester/modal, polyester/cotton and polyester/viscose, are selected. The selected fabrics are initially pretreated (scoured) to remove the impurities and then padded with a thermo-regulating finish (HeiQ Adaptive AC-06) at 2%, 4% and 6% concentrations. The coated materials are then characterized for geometrical properties and functional characteristics. The polyester/modal fabric coated with 6% finish concentration exhibits excellent thermal conductivity, thermal resistance, and thermal absorptivity characteristics.
