A Novel Method for Preparing Electroconductive Cotton Fabric

Abstract:

Article Preview

Cotton fabrics were used as substrate to develop an electroconductive textile. Due to hydrophilia and porosity of cellulose, a novel electroless nickel plating process was attempted, in which activation and electroless plating were combined. In order to improve the wettability of cotton fibres, specimens were treated by NaOH solution and were bleached in NaClO solution. Then, the treated fabric was plated by using the novel process. The surface resistivity of the plated specimens reached to 15.34 mΩ·cm, which indicated the plated cotton fabrics have good conductivity.
