Research on Exploring Effect of Stain Resisting Chemical Treatment on Automotive Fabric Parameters 2019-01-0463

Fabrics play a vital role in defining the overall aesthetics of automotive interiors, primarily with fabric cleanliness. In this respect, the cleanliness of the fabric also becomes equally important. The fabric interior in a car is very prone to staining due to the spilling of water or any liquid substance over it. In order to protect and enhance the 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 and is the focus of this study. This chemical treatment lowers the surface energy of the fabric by increasing the hydrophobicity of fabric. Hence, the liquid roll over the surface in the form of droplets by creating higher contact angle over the fiber surface.
This study focuses on the effect of chemical treatment on the automotive fabric’s parameters, especially light color fabric. This study will provide a solution to the application of stain-resistant chemical treatment for improving cleanliness in the fabric, keeping a balance between the chemical treatment and fabric properties.
