Roller blind fabrics are preferred and commonly used in home and office. In general, these fabrics are produced by coating the acrylic blended material, which is known by their ultraviolet properties, onto polyester woven fabrics. In this study, in order to characterize the sound insulation properties of roller blind fabrics, coating resin having different ratios of acrylic are applied onto different polyester woven structures. Sound absorption properties of these fabrics (front and back sides) are measured through dual microphone impedance tube and investigated by statistical analyses. Regression curves are obtained and optimum fabric properties on sound absorbing property have been suggested. As a result, acrylic content in coating material, fabric type, and viol structures occurred by coating process on the woven fabric are found as effective parameters on sound absorption properties of these fabrics. Increasing acrylic content in the resin up to 40% increases the sound absorbing value but further increasing this ratio yields sound reflection from the structure, in general. Optimum sound absorption and reflection values are provided with 40% acrylic rate in coating mixture.
