Research on exploring effect of stain resisting chemical treatment on automotive fabrics parameters. 2019-01-0463
Automobile fabric plays a vital role in defining overall aesthetic of the car. In this respect the cleanliness of the fabric also becomes equally important. Fabric in a car is very prone to staining due to spill of water or any liquid substance over it. In order to protect and enhance life of the fabric various chemical treatments are suggested as fabric finishes. There are different chemical bases available for the same. Fluorocarbon base is the most effective treatment. In our study we are focusing on fluorocarbon base treatment. This chemical treatment increase hydrophobicity of fabric. It lowers the surface energy of the fabric. Hence, the liquid rolls over the surface in the form of droplets by creating higher contact angle over fiber surface.
This study focuses on effect of chemical treatment on the parameters of the automotive fabric especially light color fabrics. This will provide us solution on application of chemical for improving cleanliness in the fabric, keeping a balance between the chemical treatment and fabrics parameter
