Abstract

In the textile industry, it has been seen the dust during the weaving preparation processes and weaving processes of the Cotton/Polyester blended yarns due to the polyester fibres. The dust especially occurs during the weaving processes because of the leaving of the non-participating fibres in the yarn structures from the yarn surface by helping friction. The dust, in the course of pulling the warp yarn, causes the end-down and fly. On the other hand, the dust, in the course of weaving, causes fly, thread breakage and warp streak. In the study, it was utilized the waxes, which have been using for coating and gaining lubricity to the yarns in the knitting processes, for reducing dust during weaving preparation and weaving processes. A various type weaved fabric was obtained by changing weft yarn type and count, weft and warp yarn paraffin situation. During the production of the fabric dust measurement was taken. Then the results were analysed statistically. Consequently, it was seen that the wax usage and wax type are effective on the minimizing dust forming in the course of woven fabric production.
