    Experimental Analysis on Comfort Characteristics of Polyester/Nylon Warp Knitted Spacer Fabric for Shoe Insole Application
    Author(s): Alemu Aduna*, Sakthival Santhnam and Meseret Bogale

    The main purpose of the research is the development and analyzes the characteristics to increase the comfort for shoe insole application. Made of two separate fabric parts or layers, top and bottom and interlaced by yarns oriented in three dimensions, a warp-knitted spacer fabric is a real 3D fibrous structure. Therefore, in this research, warp knitted spacer fabrics used for shoe insole application were produced using polyester /nylon with Rachel double needle gauge of 28E, 6 guide bars. The spacer fabric characteristics were evaluated as per standard. The warp knitted spacer fabrics can replace the existing PU foam’s shoe insoles, made to have comfort, recyclable, and environmentally friend. Statistical Analysis System (SAS) software was used for analysis. The spacer fabrics have significant compressibility and porosity which result in good cushioning and permeability... Read More»
