Abstract
To improve the dimensional properties of wool fabric, two kinds of silicone polymers
are applied to plasma pretreated wool. With this treatment, hygral expansion increases
slightly but still remains smaller than that of silicone treated wool without the plasma
pretreatment. The wrinkle recovery angles of wool increase with the treatment, and the
values of fabric treated with plasma and silicone polymers are higher than those with no
plasma pretreatment. In addition, the harsher handle imparted by plasma modification is
improved with silicone treatment. The results show that the plasma pretreatment modifies
the cuticle surface of the wool fibers and increases the reactivity of the wool fabric toward
silicone polymers. Therefore, the combination of plasma and silicone treatments can
improve the dimensional stability, wrinkle resistance, and performance properties of the
wool. Surface smoothness of the treated fabrics as measured with a new evaluation system
shows good correspondence with results from a KES-FB4 surface tester.
