Development of Cotton Fabrics Property with Anti-Bacterial Surface Treatment by Nano Silver Oxide in Biomedical Application
S. Inbakumar | P. M. Andavan
Abstract: The nanostructures are capable of enhancing the physical properties of conventional textiles, in areas such as anti-microbial properties, water repellence, soil-resistance, anti-static, anti-infrared and flame-retardant properties, dyeability, colour fastness and strength of textile materials. In the present work, silver oxide nano-particles were prepared. These nanoparticles were coated on the bleached cotton fabrics using acrylic binder and functional properties of coated fabrics were studied. Air permeability of the nano AgO coated fabrics was studied. Nano AgO coated fabric, due to its nano-size and uniform distribution, friction was significantly lower than the bulk AgO coated fabric. Surface morphology of AgO coated fabric using SEM, wash fastness, and antimicrobial properties were studied.
Keywords: AgO nano particle, bleached cotton fabric, surface morphology, UV protection and anti-bacterial
