An Investigation of Modal Fibre Based on Absorption Characteristics

The Austrian company Lenzing AG, which trades under the brand Modal, was the first to introduce the fabric. Modal is softer, more lustrous, and has a silkier feel than mercerized cotton, and it may absorb up to 50% more water than cotton. Modal fabrics drape well and do not pile like cotton. In this experiment, modal textiles (woven and knitted) are chosen and traditionally prepared before being exposed to 98 percent formic acid in various doses. After that, the formic acid-treated modal fabrics were put through a series of tests. The effectiveness of these treatments on modal fabrics was compared to that of cotton treatments. Also, modal and cotton fabrics that had not been treated with formic acid were compared.
