Between one course and the other course adjacent to each other, an amount of elastic yarns for the other course is set smaller than that for the one course so that the elastic yarn knitted into the other course is stretched by a resilience of the elastic yarn knitted into the one course contracting from a stretched state when being knitted. When making a power-enhanced knit fabric, elastic yarns are knitted under tension, so as to generate a difference in amounts of stretch of the elastic yarns during knitting, thereby producing a difference between repulsive forces of the elastic yarns for each pair of adjacent courses.

26.  CONFORMAL COATING OF POLYMER FIBERS ON NONWOVEN SUBSTRATES

The present invention describes a novel process for the conformal coating of polymer fibers on nonwoven substrates. This process is based on the modification of polymer fiber surfaces by controlling the degree of etching and oxidation, which improves adhesion of initiators to the surface and facilitates subsequent conformal polymer grafting. The modified fiber surfaces render new functionalities to the surface, such as increasing hydrophilicity, attaching ligands or changing surface energy. The invention includes the modified polymer fibers produced by the process described herein.

A knitting tool (10), preferably a latch needle, intended for fast-running knitting machines has a meandering shaft with reduced-thickness regions. The meandering shaft is adjoined by a straight shaft extension (16) which likewise has a reduced-thickness portion (32). The shaft extension (16) is distinguished from the shaft (15) by way of its height H2, which is less than the height H1 of the shaft (15). The reduced-thickness region (32) of the shaft extension (16) has a length which is at least much greater than the length of the stitch-forming structure (28) carried by the shaft extension (16). Preferably, the reduced-thickness region (32) is longer overall than the non-reduced-thickness region of the shaft extension (16).
