The slip resistance is a term from the textile industry. It describes the force that is necessary to prevent the warp or weft threads from being displaced horizontally from their original position. Slip resistance also relates to the seams after tensile stress (seam slippage resistance).
The shift from the original position can be prevented by the type of yarn , the twisting of the yarn (torsion), the type of weave and the setting. Setting is the way in which the warp and weft threads of a fabric are combined with one another.
Ties with long floating threads made from the smooth textile fibers ( filaments ) of man-made fibers are susceptible to being pushed . Be particularly slip resistant apply cloth binding , the Kreuzköper and knits .
A high level of slip resistance is indispensable for perfect performance of most fabrics. With bulging or tensile stress, there are no gaps or slits in the fabric.
The resistance to sliding can be increased with appropriate equipment .
Particularly in the case of fabrics made from synthetic fiber filaments, an appropriate treatment prevents the warp and / or weft threads from sliding apart in the lateral direction. For this purpose, the crossing points of the threads are glued with rosin or synthetic resins (washable), with the help of metal salts (not washable), or with silicon compounds by making the fiber surface rougher. Similar procedures are the Antisnag equipment (for a running stitch formation ), and the anti-pilling equipment .
