Investigates of fabric coating approaches: parameters for fabric performance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study examined the effect of the coating speed, coating solution, cure temperature, knife gap and fabric matrixes on surface properties, water vapor permeability and hydrostatic head test. The optimum conditions for surface high water vapour permeability that enables the user to “dial in” the right balance of properties based on the findings of the experimental. This sample showed high excellent resistance to +7m in hydrostatic head tests for a single-layer coated fabric and. Surface morphology showed that the coating was continuous without cracks or pin holes and appeared to be well adhered to the substrate even after a harsh wash.
