Resilience – Rugged all the way – from yarn to finished fabric
Resilience is a type of fabric property that is required if the fabric will be exposed to extreme conditions over a prolonged period of time. These conditions may result from the ambient environment or may simply arise from prolonged above-average strain on the fabric.
The basis for resilient fabric properties is created even before the fabric starts to be woven. In the textiles lab, the yarn is subjected to tear strength testing. A suitable engineering design is then applied to ensure the fabric’s reliable resilience.
