Water Proofing Finishing of Textile Fabric - Textile Learner

Purpose of Water Proofing:For certain uses such as Tarpaulin, Umbrella cloth, Rain coat fabrics etc., it is required to give this type of finish as these type of fabrics are generally used against the air and water in the normal life. So they should have some property to prevent both air and water passing through them. This finish makes the wearer feel uneasy and uncomfortable as the air circulation is not there. Principle of Water Proofing: A film on the surface of the fabric should be formed for the prevention of air and water. When a uniform coating of suitable substances such as rubber is produced on the surface of a fabric, the interstices between the warp and weft yarns are blocked by the continuous film or substance and both water and air not pass through the treated fabrics.

They call it the YKK Aquaseal and it's been around for several years now…at least 3 years. I think the real question, is why don't we see more of these waterproof toothed zippers that are significantly better than the urethane coated zips that are so prominent today. These new toothed zippers that seal with rubber between the teeth are much better because they are truly waterproof and they zip up with much less drag, like a normal zipper. Waterproof Fabric Guide.

Waterproof vs Water-Resistant, explained

Because I did. Because I had to have one. My “amazing” adventures and my life demanded it. The important and expensive things I carried must never ever get wet, never. I wanted that assurance, that if there were a sudden tropical rainstorm, my tech gear would be perfect, no questions asked, no matter how hard the rain came. I’ve realized, this is ridiculous. Let’s explore the differences between Waterproof and Water-Resistant.
