Fiber Friction in Natural and Chemically Treated Cotton

R.M. Broughton, Y.E. ElMogahzy, and Q. Wang


Raw and scoured cotton has been tested for frictional properties using two testing devices. The frictional properties of scoured cotton show some correlation with fiber fineness and fiber length properties. Three finishes have been evaluated using the friction tests. Two of these offer some promise for approaching the lubricity of the waxes naturally occurring on the cotton fiber.
