Abstract

The cut resistance is the most important property of the fabrics used for protective gloves, anti- stabbing and bulletproof fabrics. A newly designed apparatus for measuring the fabric cut resistance under various loading is developed. Several triaxial fabrics were examined, Polyester, Vectran and Kevlar-29, with different fabric weights. The effects of cutting load, speed and fiber type were explored. Analysis of the model of the cutting force of triaxial fabric was investigated. Cutting resistance force noticed 2.21N, 5.10N, and 8.23N for Polyester, Vectran and Kevlar-29 triaxial fabrics respectively. The Kevlar-29 triaxial fabric demonstrated to have the highest fabric cut resistance.
