Coated and Laminated Textiles (Woodhead Publishing Series in by W Fung

By W Fung

Coating and lamination supply tools of bettering and enhancing the actual homes and visual appeal of materials and in addition the advance of totally new items by way of combining the advantages of materials, polymers and flicks. This distinctive e-book covers all points of coating and lamination in the cloth together with – compound constituents, the best way to set and cling to strictly managed processing stipulations, the actual keep an eye on of creation variables, the secure dealing with of poisonous fabrics and the continuing study into destiny items as a way to facilitate recycling and disposal. This booklet could be fairly beneficial within the perception it offers in regards to the demanding situations and possibilities that those new remedies supply and should be crucial interpreting for technologists, chemists and creation engineers operating during this box.

Sample text

Knitted fabrics, which cannot generally be direct coated and which invariably have softer handles with better drape than woven fabrics, are usually transfer coated, see Chapter 3. Coated fabrics with excellent drape and soft handles are made possible by this process. The knitted base fabrics are sometimes slightly raised or napped to improve coating adhesion and to maximise the softness and flexibility of the coated fabric. A notable difference between direct coating and transfer coating is that in direct coating, the resin is on the back of the fabric and is on the inside of the garment.

Even non-thermoplastic fabrics such as cotton can be mechanically stretched under tension and, when this tension is released, fabric creasing may occur or patterns may be distorted. It should be tensioned sufficiently to present a flat and uniform surface for uniform and even application of the coating resin. Excessive tensions, including those induced by shrinkage, could cause creasing. Other fabric faults, such as creases or slack selvedges, will also give rise to problems in coating or lamination.

Even seam slippage agents, fabric softeners and, in the case of nylon, aftertreatments to improve dye fastness (syntans), can reduce adhesion substantially – although some syntans reduce adhesion less than others. Sometimes the loss in bond strength can be tolerated, and sometimes a finish such as a fluorocarbon is actually applied beforehand to help control resin penetration during coating. If finishes are necessary, they should be kept to a minimum concentration and their effect on adhesion should be examined before proceeding to bulk production.
