Low-temperature atmospheric pressure plasma
Progressive technology of low-temperature atmospheric pressure plasma belongs among environmentally efficient technological finishing processes of textile surfaces as a suitable alternative of wet chemical processes used to modify textile surfaces. It is characterized by low raw material and energy consumption and the technology meets the principles of environmental acceptability and sustainability.
It allows connection of physical activation of textile materials by creation of free radicals on their surface and subsequent chemical application of nanocoating with special performance characteristics to form a nanocomposite, and/or nanostructured material through thin functional nanoparticle layers. Enhanced adhesion of the nanocoating to the plasma-activated surface will thus ensure permanent performance characteristics of the innovated textile materials.
