Background/Aim In Alberta, mask wear in public continues to be mandatory to limit the spread of COVID-19. Public health guidelines on correct wear and handling of masks is established to ensure effectivity. However, with COVID-19 incidence increasing in adults in their 20s and 30s, questions are...
Retention and release of odorants in cotton and polyester fabrics following multiple soil/wash proceduresDownload
Odorous clothing can be an annoying and unpleasant problem particularly when odorants are not effectively removed via laundering. Cotton and polyester knit fabrics were soiled with three selected odorants, representing different polarities and lipophilicities (i.e. octanoic acid, 2-nonenal,...
Odor in textiles: A review of evaluation methods, fabric characteristics, and odor control technologiesDownload
During use, textile items can develop unpleasant odors that arise from many different sources, both internal and external to the human body. Laundering is not always effective at removing odors, with odor potentially building up over time, due to incomplete removal of soils and odorous compounds,...

Mediation and ANCOVA Models to Study the Influence of Solvent Retting Traits and Plant Physique on Bast Fiber Yield and Retting TimeDownload
The study aims in applying two statistical tools to analyze the retting behavior of plant stems for extracting bast fibers for industrial applications. At first, a mediation model is employed to investigate the first hypothesis of this work that involves studying the color response of the retted...
The physical properties of weft knitted fabrics can be modified according to the fabric structure and the raw material used to manufacture the final fabric. This research demonstrates the influence of fiber types and fabric structure on some specific physical properties such as bursting strength,...
Tear strength is an important fabric characteristic used to evaluate the serviceability of textile materials and their suitability for particular end uses such as protective clothing. In this study, the effect of test specimen size on tear strength was analyzed. The aim was to determine...
Investigation of the Accelerated Thermal Aging Behavior of Polyetherimide and Lifetime Prediction at Elevated TemperatureDownload
Fire-protective clothing are manufactured using heat and flame resistant fibers that are made of high-performance polymers. These polymers exhibit a gradual reduction in their performance after long-term exposure under various aging conditions. This study investigates the thermal aging behavior...
