Abstract

Non-thermal atmospheric plasma was used for surface modification of raw cotton and linen fabrics. Changes in hydrophilicity of the fiber surface were measured as a function of parameters of the atmospheric plasma pretreatment. Wettability of the fabrics was characterized by water drop test and water contact angles. Wickability by thin layer wicking test was also measured and the surface energy of the fibers was calculated. Changes in the chemical composition of the fiber surface were detected by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR ATR). The effect of plasma pretreatment on the morphology of the fiber surface was evaluated by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Furthermore, the effectiveness of the subsequently applied enzyme reactions was also evaluated.
