Preparation and Properties of Knitted Coated Fabric with Flame Retardancy
Due to its excellent performance, special style and variable function, coated fabric is used more and more widely by the public. At present, there are lots of coated fabrics, most of which are made from woven fabric, knits are rarely used. The reason is knitted fabric has good elasticity and large deformation. Therefore, it is difficult to control the tension in the direct coating process. In this paper, the transfer coating process is adopted to solve this problem. First of all, knitted fabric was finished by padding flame retardant, then coated with polyurethane(PU) which includes flame retardant. The optimum transfer coating process is obtained by orthogonal experiment. Knitted coated fabrics with flame retardancy are manufactured by the optimum coating process. Washing durability of coated fabric was tested through the washing test. The results showed that the coated fabric has good flame retardancy and the washing durability.
