Özet

The aim of this study is to determine and evaluate some comfort properties of laminated fabrics obtained with different membranes. In the study, 100% PES woven fabric was laminated using membrane materials as PU (polyurethane), PES (poliester) and PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). Water repellent finishing process was applied to these fabrics and some comfort tests of the fabric were carried out in two groups. These groups are; Group 1, subjected to lamination after the application of water repellent finishing process; group 2, subjected to water repellent finishing process after lamination process. The comfort tests included water repellent, air permeability, water impermeability, and water vapor transmission tests. The obtained results from experimental studies were compared with graphics and thus interpreted. In conclusion, it could be recommended to apply water repellent processes after lamination, in contrast to traditional method using water repellent process prior to lamination.
