Paper Abstract

The study is describing Nylon yarn, though with low weight (specific weight 1.14), good elongation and high strength (4.5~9.5 g/d). Through the combination of irregular section long staple fiber to reach the core yarn, spun from Nylon fiber and long filament fiber, not only has the advantages of Nylon product but also has it can be used for making army-bag which can enhance the abrasion resistance, low weight and coving yarn that has doubled yarn effect from yarn surface consisting of Nylon fiber and long filament fiber. We used a Hamel's Elasto Twister (hollow-spindle machine) to prepare the yarn samples for our study. During spinning, the spindle speed was kept the same, while yarn through put speed was varied to obtain different wrap twists (700, 800, 900, 1000 T/M). The wrapping yarn is Nylon yarn with different count (40, 70D) and core yarn is ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) filament with 375 deniers, respectively. The results revealed the covered yarn have good physical properties and will be good performance in army-bag and army uniform. Keywords: Nylon, abrasion resistance, UHMWPE, physical properties
