There are growing demands on the warp knitted lace look raschel fabrics in recent years. We can see this fabric as net curtains or outerwears. To the best of our knowledge, there is no published experimental study which focuses on the investigation of the abrasion resistance and bursting strength of warp knitted raschel fabrics for a net curtain or outwears. In this study, the method for testing abrasion resistance of lace look warp knitted raschel fabrics for a net curtain or outwear was created. For this purpose abrasion and reverse abrasion tests were performed with Martindale abrasion tester. Influences of abradant fabric, the lining fabric and the pattern position on abrasion resistance results were examined. To compare the effects of measurement techniques, bursting strength of the warp knitted raschel fabric samples were measured with ball burst mechanism, hydraulic and pneumatic type diaphragm bursting testers. According to the variance analysis results, the effect of the bursting strength test method is highly significant. Lowest bursting strength results are obtained in the wet state. As the measured test area increases, the bursting strength decreases.
