Investigation of Textile Bonded Seams
Keywords:thermoplastic film, textile bond, peeling, parameters.
The strength of textile bonded seams is analyzed. The bonding is based on utilization of thermoplastic properties of main
materials and materials used for bonding. In order to get the bond, particular parameters have been selected, among them
bonding temperature, pressure and duration. During the selection of parameters significant difficulties are encountered
because the structure of bonded fabrics, their treatment and surface properties are very different. It was stated that the
optimal parameters of film transfer are 160 °C and 10 sec and optimal parameters of layer bonding are 180 °C and
30 sec. In case of too low film transfer temperature the film soaks into the lower layer of specimen insufficiently,
whereas in case of too high temperature it soaks overmuch.
