Selfcleaning Washable Cotton Textiles and its Blendings
Cotton is the most widely used fabric, mostly because of its good characteristics: nice to the touch, breathability, hydrophilic character, aesthetic looks, natural source. We are able to add some more characteristics to cotton: superhydrophobic and oleophobic effect while preserving breathability. Our cotton becomes a product with superpowers – we are introducing waterproof cotton, resistant to oil stains.
Description of the Invention
The invention relates to the preparation of breathable superhidrophobic and oleophobic coating for cotton and cotton-polyester textiles that has inclined angle lower than 10” even after 10 washings. This is achieved with preparation of micro and nano roughness and adding extra hidrofobic and oleofobic organic silan precursors.
- Natural textile with additional characteristics: hidrofobic and oleofobic
