In the present paper some experimental analyses effected on Dacron© 360 wovenwith and without surface treatment, aimed to characterize the effect of this treatment on the constitutive behavior, are presented. This woven, widely adopted in sail manufacturing, isobtained by weaving polyethylene terephthalate (PET) yarn and it shows some peculiar features due to the manufacturing process. The experimental tests, in terms of tensile tests,clearly show the orthotropy features of the material and the effect of the treatment which results in a stiffer behavior especially along the warp and bias direction and in an incrementof ultimate strength in all directions.
