Inkjet Printing of Fluorine-free Hydrophobic, Breathable Textile Coatings
Abstract:We report an alternative method of creating hydrophobic and breathable fibers using organic fluoro-free materials causing structural changes on the surface of the fibers without affecting its texture. Crosslinked hydroxyl functional styrene nanoparticles were prepared by emulsion polymerization and deposited onto cotton either manually or via inkjet printing and the final sample was assessed for the durability of hydrophobicity and breathability after mechanical stressing and wash cycles.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
