Electrokinetic investigation of polyelectrolyte adsorption and multilayer formation on a polymer surface
Stefan Köstler, Volker Ribitsch, Karin Stana-Kleinschek, Georg Jakopic, Simona Strnad, 2005, original scientific article

Abstract: Self assembled polyelectrolyte layers of poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS), and poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDADMAC) were deposited on planar poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) substrates using the layer-by-layer technique. Charged functional groups were generated on the polymer substrates by means of a surface modification procedure prior to polyelectrolyte adsorption. The layers were characterised concerning their electrokinetic properties. The build-up of multilayer architectures could be followed by changes of the zeta-potential versus pH curves. An increase of coating density with increasing layer number was found. The electrokinetic properties of the PET substrates were not recognised anymore if more then four layers were applied. If PSS formed the outermost layer these assemblies were very stable against shear forces while if PDADMAC formed the outermost layer the films were partially destroyed by high shear forces.
Keywords: textile materials, polyelectrolyte multilayers, layer-by-layer assembly, zeta-potential, ellipsometry, polymer substrate, layer stability

Biodegradation of natural textile materials in soil
Khubaib Arshad, Mikael Skrifvars, Vera Vivod, Julija Volmajer Valh, Bojana Vončina, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: World is facing numerous environmental challenges, one of them being the increasing pollution both in the atmosphere and landfills. After the goods have been used, they are either buried or burnt. Both ways of disposal are detrimental and hazardous to the environment. The term biodegradation is becoming more and more important, as it converts materials into water, carbon dioxide and biomass, which present no harm to the environment. Nowadays, a lot of research is performed on the development of biodegradable polymers, which can “vanish” from the Earth surface after being used. In this respect, this research work was conducted in order to study the biodegradation phenomenon of cellulosic and non-cellulosic textile materials when buried in soil, for them to be used in our daily lives with maximum efficiency and after their use, to be disposed of easily with no harmful effects to the environment. This research indicates the time span of the use life of various cellulosic and non-cellulosic materials such as cotton, jute, linen, flax, wool when used for the reinforcement of soil. The visual observations and applied microscopic methods revealed that the biodegradation of cellulose textile materials proceeded in a similar way as for non-cellulosic materials, the only difference being the time of biodegradation. The non-cellulosic textile material (wool) was relatively more resistant to microorganisms due to its molecular structure and surface.

Hydrophilic/hydrophobic characteristics of different cellulose fibres monitored by tensiometry
Zdenka Peršin, Karin Stana-Kleinschek, Tatjana Kreže, 2002, original scientific article

Abstract: Wettability and sorptivity improvements for different textile materials are the major tasks during textile finishing. In order to improve the sorption characteristics of a cellulose fabric, different pre-treatment processes are applied, usually washing, bleaching and mecerisation. Differences in the sorption properties of untreated and pretreated (washed and bleached) regenerated cellulose fibres were obtained using tensiometry and compared with the classical method for determining moisture adsorption. Results show that compared to raw fibres, viscose fibres have the highest moisture and the smallest contact angle whilst modal fibres have the biggest contact angle. Pretreatment increases the sorption abilities and makes the material more accessible to chemicals used in the finishing process. Using the conventional method, it can be confirmed that fibres with the highest moisture have the smallest contact angle (tensiometry).

Dependence of warm or cold feeling and heat retention ability of knitwear from digital print parameters
Mladen Stančić, Dragana Grujić, Dragoljub Novaković, Nemanja Kašiković, Branka Ružičić, Jelka Geršak, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: Textile materials are increasingly being subjected to the process of printing. The printing process with its parameters significantly affects the properties of textile materials and clothes made from these materials. This paper examines the effect of the parameters of digital printing on thermo-physiological characteristics of printed textile materials. As the essential print parameters were selected tone value and a different number of passes. In this research were used knitted fabric materials of 100% cotton fibers (100% CO), 100% polyester fibers (100% PES) and their mixture (50%CO/50% PES). The influence of print parameters to thermo-physiological properties of the material is evaluated through a warm or cold feeling and heat retention ability. Results of the research demonstrated that, in addition to material composition, the printing process with its parameters have a significant influence on the thermo-physiological characteristics of textile materials.
Keywords: digital printing, textile materials, thermo-physiological comfort, warm of cold feeling, heat retention ability
