The Evaluation Methods on the Wear Resistance of Magnetron Sputtering Coated Fabrics
In order to find the appropriate method to appraise the wear resistance of coated fabrics, Ti film was manufactured on the nylon fabric in different process conditions through magnetron sputtering, and then methods of breakage, mass loss, transmissivity and the changes of grey value were used to analyze the wear resistance of coated fabric. The results show that: the test data of sample breakage method can not be easily collected. The weight loss method has a very small difference before and after rubbing, and the static electricity attracts dust during the friction process that adds the error of experimental results. The Gaps between the fabric yarns result in large fluctuations in the method of transmissivity. The change of grey value method reflects well with the wear of coated fabric after rubbing and is suitable for evaluating the wear resistance of magnetron sputtering coated fabric.
