Nylon Fabrics, Mechanical Properties, UPF, Sewability and SEM.


Nanotechnology is extensively used in textile industries because it confers unique properties on fabrics.In this study, using nano silicon dioxide (SiO2)-coated nylon fabrics have created a lot of awareness appropriate to improve their functional properties. Using deferent con-struction of nano silicon dioxide (SiO2), the optimization construction are used to carry out treatments impart to improve the roughness, antistatic charge, sew ability, thickness; weight and UPF measurement are investigated. The study evaluates the possibility of using the scanning electron microscope (SEM) to show optimize the effect of treatment of nylon fabrics with nano silicon dioxide not only on the effect of treatment of nylon fabrics with nano silicon dioxide not only on their performance and appearance but also in garment man-ufacturing.
