The Factors That Affect The Durability of Cotton Flame Retardant Fabrics
1, The amount of flame retardant
In the flame retardant finishing, the amount of the flame retardant has a decisive effect on the flame retardant finishing effect and the physical and mechanical properties of the flame retardant fabric after finishing.
Within a certain range, with the increase of the amount of flame retardant, the flame retardant effect of the flame retardant fabric will continue to increase, but when the flame retardant content reaches a certain amount, the amount of the flame retardant continues to increase, and the flame retardant effect is no longer improved. And the flame retardant fabric feels hard, whiteness and tear strength drop. The amount of the flame retardant is too small, the crosslinking is insufficient, and the washing durability is poor.
2. Crosslinker dosage
The cross-linking agent can crosslink the flame retardant and the cellulose molecule to form a network structure in the flame-retardant finishing process, and enhance the washing durability of the flame retardant fabric, and the film forming property of the cross-linking agent on the surface of the flame retardant fabric directly determines the fabric. Handfeel, tear strength, washability.
The cross-linking agent has little effect on the flame retardant properties of the flame retardant fabric, but has a great influence on the hand feeling, tear strength and durability of the flame retardant fabric. The cross-linking agent is improved in flame retardant and wash-resistance by cross-linking with the fiber macromolecule and covalently bonding with the flame retardant. Therefore, if the amount of the crosslinking agent is too small, the crosslinking is not favorable for film formation, and the washing durability is poor; when the amount is too large, the formed network structure makes the flame retardant fabric feel hard and the strength is lowered. Therefore, the amount of the crosslinking agent is selected to balance the feeling of hand, strength and wash fastness.
3, The amount of catalyst
In the flame-retardant finishing process, the catalyst can quickly crosslink the crosslinking agent with the flame retardant and the cellulose macromolecule during the baking process, thereby improving the flame retardant finishing effect. However, the catalyst is mostly acidic, which has a great influence on the strength of the flame retardant fabric, and the dosage must be strictly controlled.
A suitable catalyst can improve the flame retardant effect on the flame retardant fabric. However, when the amount is too much, the cotton fabric is resistant to alkali and acid, which causes the fabric strength to drop seriously, and the whiteness and feel are slightly decreased. The choice of catalyst dosage should fully consider the strong factors of the flame retardant fabric, and immediately neutralize with alkali after printing to reduce the strong damage to the flame retardant fabric.
4, Baking temperature and baking time
The effect of baking temperature and baking time on the flame retardant fabric is self-evident. The covalent cross-linking of the reaction of flame retardant, cellulose macromolecule and cross-linking agent must be completed in the baking process, suitable baking The temperature and baking time can make the film formation sufficient and the washing durability is enhanced.
When the baking temperature is too high, the baking time is too long, the flame retardant fabric is brittle, and the tearing strength is lowered. When the baking temperature is too low, the reaction between the flame retardant and the crosslinking agent is insufficient, and the washing durability of the flame retardant fabric is deteriorated.
