Nanofinishes for UV protection in textiles

  1. 1. MYTHILI TUMMALAPALLI 2010TTZ8217 SUBMITTED TO DR. BHUVANESH GUPTA
  2. 2.  UVA (320 to 400 nm)  UVB (290 to 320 nm)  UVC (200 to 290 nm)
  3. 3. UV-B irradiance at the surface based on the abundance of ozone, as measured by NASA’s Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instrument during the month of November, 2000.

  5. 5. Aerospace Aviation Petrochemical Electronics Machinery Environment Protection..
  6. 6.  Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) Eλ = erythemal spectral effectiveness Sλ = solar spectral irradiance in W/m2/nm Tλ = spectral transmittance of fabric Δ λ = the bandwidth in nm λ = the wavelength in nm
  7. 7.  Solar Protection Factor (SPF) MED = Minimum Erythrymal Dose Higher the UPF and SPF values, better the UV protection by the fabric

  9. 9.  Fiber chemistry  Fabric construction, porosity, thickness and weight;  Moisture content  Dye concentration, whitening agents, UV absorbers  Finishing chemicals
  10. 10. UV absorbers Colors Finishes - - NANO
  11. 11.  Nanotechnology - structures sized between 1 to 100 nm in at least one dimension  ZnO, TiO2 , ZrO - absorb the UV radiation  ZnO, TiO2 - non-toxic, compatible with human skin, chemically stable under both high temp. and UVR, easily available
  12. 12.  High surface-to-volume ratio - adhere well to the fabric  Transparent appearance  High surface area and high surface energy - bound to the surface of the fibres by van der Waals forces - wash fastness
  13. 13.  Cotton/polyester  Higher UPF  Woven better UPF than knitted  Polyester/cotton blend - better UPF than pure cotton - UV absorption of polyester Karthivelu et al., Indian Journal of Fibre & Textile Research, Vol. 34, September 2009, pg. 267-273
  14. 14.  Hexamethyelenetetramine and zincnitrate  Cotton fabric - treated in hot water to obtain 1D needle-shaped nano ZnO crystallites
  15. 15. (a) before treatment, (b) after soaking in the SiO2 solution, (c) after chemical deposition of ZnO, and (d) after hot water treatment at 100 °C for 2.5 h
  16. 16. (a) before treatment, (b) after soaking in the SiO2 solution, (c) after chemical deposition of ZnO, and (d) after hotwater treatment at 100 °C for 2.5 h. (a) before treatment, (b) after soaking in the SiO2 solution, chemical deposition of ZnO, and boiling water treatment for 3 h, and (c) after 20 washes Mao et al., Thin Solid Films, Vol. 517, 2009, pg. 2681–2686
  17. 17.  CeO2 -excellent UV absorption - low photocatalytic activity  CeO2 + ZnO - reduce the catalytic and photocatalytic activities  Fine ZnO:CeO2 particles with very small size - unique UV absorbing ability, high stability at high temp., high hardness, and low activity as catalyst J. F. Lima et al., Applied Surface Science, Vol. 255, 2009, pg. 9006–9009
  18. 18.  Layered fabric systems with electrospun ZnO nanocomposite fiber webs - various conc of ZnO in a range of web area densities  Extremely thin, Light-weight, Mechanically flexible  Desired functionalities imparted without significant increases in weight or thickness
  19. 19. SEM micrographs of (a) electrospun polyurethane nanofiber web, (b) electrospun polyurethane/ZnO nanocomposite fiber web and the cross-sectional view of a nanocomposite fiber (inset), and (c) cross-sectional view of a layered fabric system
