The development of fabric garland with fragrance addition technology
MetadataShow full item record
This research studies the development of fabric garland with fragrance addition technology by investigating the method of covering microcapsule fragrance on fabric which is the material of making garland. The result of the study shows that: The study of covering gelatin on polyester fabric shows that the small amounts of gelatin applied on polyester lower the strength of the fabric which is not suitable for marking garland. Due to the requirement of the strength in making garland by folding fabrics and passing them through thread into round shape, lacking of the strength causes the difficulty for the making process. Gelatin provides stiffness and hardness to the fabric which is easy to form into various shapes. Before adding fragrance, the result of stiffness test shows that the fabric has bending length of warp yarn at 5.9 centimeters and weft yarn at 4.1 centimeters; however, after adding fragrance, bending length of warp yarn is at 2.7 centimeters and weft yarn is at 1.9 respectively. Then, the efficiency of covering microcapsule fragrance on fabric is tested by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEA). After adding fragrance, the result shows that: (1) the numbers of microcapsule are higher, (2) microcapsules form in round shape, and (3) the size of microcapsules are similar. However, after 30 day of applying microcapsule to the fabric, it shows that (1) the numbers of microcapsule are lower, and (2) microcapsules are not in complete round shape, due to the deterioration. For the process of making garland with nonmicrocapsule and microcapsule fabric, it demonstrates that microcapsule fabric does not impact the process of making garland, but it adds the value for fragrance addition which is able to be considered as added value.
