Preparation and Properties of Kaolin Modified Polyester Fibers
Abstract:Kaolin masterbatch was prepared first, and then three kinds of kaolin modified polyester fibers (100 dtex) which respectively contained kaolin masterbatch 2%(PK2), 4%(PK4), 6%(PK6) were successfully spun. Properties of kaolin modified fibers were discussed. The results showed that kaolin particles were evenly dispersed in polyesters. Breaking strength and Young’s modulus of the kaolin modified fibers were decreased with the increase of the kaolin content; moisture absorption was increased with the increase of the kaolin content; boiling water shrinkage was decreased with the increase of the kaolin content; and kaolin modified polyester fibers have good performance of ultraviolet resistance.
