A Durable Superhydrophilic Modification of Polyester Fabric
In this paper, a durable superhydrophilic modification was applied to polyester fabric to improve its wettability- HAS treatment. The wetting ability of HAS treated polyester fabric improved a lot; the water contact angle could decrease to 00 in 3s; the water content increased up to 115%; the wicking distance increased up to 15cm; spraying rate improved to 1 degree. The wearability tests showed the breaking strength and creasability remain almost the same as untreated polyester fabric.
