Abstract

In this paper, the influence of 3-glycidoxypropyltriethoxysilane (GPTES) based organic-inorganic coatings on the properties of treated textile fabrics was studied. All experimental results were deeply analyzed and thereafter correlated with the employed silica precursor concentration and with the presence of the BF3OEt2 (Boron trifluoride diethyl etherate), used as epoxy ring opening catalyst. SEM analysis, FT-IR spectroscopy, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and washing fastness tests of the sol-gel treated cotton fabric samples were firstly exploited in order to characterize the morphological and structural features of the achieved coatings. Finally, the influence of the resulting nanohybrid coatings was explored in terms of abrasion resistance, tensile strength and elongation properties of treated cotton, polyester and silk fabrics. The catalyst amounts seem to strongly improve the formation of coatings, but still they do not influence the wear resistance of treated textile fabrics to the same extent. Indeed, it was found that increasing catalyst/GPTES ratio leads to a more cross linked inorganic 3D-network. GPTES itself was not found to affect the bulk properties of the selected textile and the resulting coatings were not so rigid to hardly modify the mechanical properties of the treated samples. Finally, it is worth mentioning that in all case the obtained 3-glycidoxypropyltriethoxysilane-based chemical finishing have shown no cytotoxic effects on human skin cells.
