Engineered Warp Knit Auxetic Fabrics
Auxetic textiles belong to a class of extraordinary materials which become thicker when stretched perpendicular to the applied force. In other words, auxetic materials have negative Poisson’s ratio. Such materials are increasingly attaining some prominence in ongoing research of technical textiles. A major production route could be, first, to synthesize the auxetic polymers and then to produce the yarn and knitted fabrics and thereafter, form composites from these polymers.
