Heat-Wet Property Test of PTFE Membrane Fabrics
Yingmei Wang, Yanmei Li, Xiaona Wu

PTFE is short for poly tetrafluorothylene, PTFE membrane is a kind of micro porous breathable membrane, and now widely used in apparel and textile industry.Testing the thermal and water-vapour performance of PTFE membrane laminated fabric can indirectly reflect people’s feelings in actual wearing. This paper selected 8 kinds of PTFE membrane animated composite fabrics, tested and discussed its air permeability, water resistance, thermal resistance, Water-vapour permeability index and wicking height, the results showed that PTFE membrane composite fabrics have good heat-wet comfort ability.
