Optimization study for Waterproof breathable Polyester fabric

  title={Optimization study for Waterproof breathable Polyester fabric},
  author={Ravindra D. Kale and Akshay Vade and Tejasvi Potdar},
Polyester fabric was coated with polyurethane (PU) formulation along with fluorine based water repellent compound for making waterproof breathable fabric. The water repellent properties of the coated fabrics were evaluated by measuring water vapor permeability, spray test, contact angle, hydrostatic pressure and rain test. Physical characteristics of the coated fabrics such as mechanical strength, stiffness and crease recovery were also analyzed. The performance and durability of waterproof…

Design of Experiment Approach to Optimize Hydrophobic Fabric Treatments

It is shown that DoE is an excellent tool for optimization of the parameters used in polymer surface functionalization by modifying the process parameters to achieve excellent hydrophobicity of polymer surfaces.



Water Resistant-Breathable Hydrophilic Polyurethane Coatings

Polyurethane (PU) coatings on nylon fabric that have high moisture permeability and water repellency properties have been developed. These PU coatings are prepared by reacting

Performance Evaluation of Water Repellent Finishes on Woven Fabric Properties

In this study, plain woven fabrics in two blends were chosen to investigate the effects of water repellent finishes on woven fabric properties. The fabrics were treated with different types of water
