Abstract

A motorcyclist is all the time prone to mechanical risks while riding. The aim of this research is to develop cost effective seamless functional/ protective knitted gloves for motorcyclists for winter season. Recycled PPTA, acrylic and cotton were used in different ratios for producing three different samples of gloves. Abrasion resistance test and thermophyscological comfort tests i.e thermal insulation, air permeability, and moisture management test were performed. All the developed protective gloves have good abrasion resistance and were thermally insulated. The best results were obtained for samples with 60% recycled PPTA and 40% acrylic. Usage of recycle material will be helpful for environmental protection.
