The Research on the Application of Super Soft Amino-Modified Silicone Oil SM-20 for PET Fabrics
This paper discussed the application of super soft amino-modified silicone oil SM-20 on the PET fabrics, and the experimental conditions such as the dosage of SM-20, cure temperature, cure time, pH value of the solution etc. were optimized according to the influences on the polyester (PET) fabrics after using SM-20 finishing agent. Based on IR spectrum and SEM, the SM-20 finishing agent was verified to possess excellent performance of the PET fabrics for the soft treatment, and the optimal process conditions were: SM-20 10 g/L, pH value 5.0-6.0 (adjusting by acetic acid). After soft treatment by SM-20, the drape coefficient, stiffness and strength of the fabric decreased, while the recovery angle and softness increased.
