Nanofibers, which have larger specific surface areas than conventional fibers, significantly enhance the functionality of conventional fiber materials in addition to introducing new features. Thermal barrier and sound insulation tests were conducted to assess the thermal and acoustic properties of the nanofilament fabrics prepared from polyethylene terephthalate (PET)/modified PET sea-island bicomponent fibers. The results indicate that fabrics with filament diameter of 400 nm exhibited excellent thermal and sound insulation performance compared to the fabrics with filament diameter of 600 nm.
