Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this work, polyurethane coating on the fabrics is studied in the Basecoater 200. The structure and morphology of coated fabrics were investigated using SEM and soaking test in the cured coated samples. Coating thicknesses, surface friction coefficient and surface roughness variation of the samples were measured using the surface tester of the KESF. Results showed that uniform and cross linking degree of the surface layer of coated samples have close relevant with coat processing. The performance quality of end products can be achieved by optimization of process variables, including coating speed, coating solution, and cure temperature and fabric matrixes during fabric coating processing.
