Abstract :

In the past few years, there is an advanced development in manufacturing process in Technical Textiles and this review deals with technology of materials with Poisson’s Ratio. Common Materials have poisson’s ratio ranging from 0.0 to 0.5 but Auxetic material possess Negative Poisson’s Ratio (NPR). In recent years, the use of Auxetic Materials has attracted more and more attention in Textile Industry. As they expand laterally when stretched longitudinally and contract laterally when compressed. This review covers with general information about Auxetic Material, Auxetic Polymers and manufacturing it from Conventional Fibres, Application and Uses.
