Abstract

The most important property of all apparels is comfort. It is a qualitative term and it is one of the most important aspects of clothing. The clothing comfort can be divided into three categories, i.e. physiological, tactile and thermal comfort. Physiological comfort bears little relation to the properties of the fabrics and is mainly related to the latest fashion trend and the acceptability in society. The tactile comfort has relationship with fabric surface and mechanical properties. The thermal comfort is related to the ability of a fabric to maintain the temperature of the skin through transfer of heat and perspiration generated within human body and is determined by movement of heat, moisture and air. Comfort characteristics are related to surface smoothness, air permeability, heat transmittance, and hydrophilicity of fabric. These properties can be attained by fibre surface modification. The surface modification of natural and synthetic fibers through various techniques makes them advantageous by overcoming their inherent drawbacks and successfully utilizing these materials in various applications [1]. This review talks about various fibre surface modification techniques including physical and chemical method and their effect on fabric comfort properties.

Keywords: Comfort; Surface Modification; Heat Transmittance; Hydrophobicity
