Desizing of starch sized cotton fabrics with atmospheric pressure plasma

Carrie Cornelius, Marian McCord, Peter Hauser, Mohamed Bourham


Atmospheric pressure plasma is examined as a desizing agent for starch-sized cotton samples. Plasma treatment is examined both for its physical etching properties and for its ability to induce desizing of the starch during a scouring bath. The effect of the plasma gas composition and plasma exposure duration are evaluated. A 2-min helium/oxygen plasma is found to be the only condition that appears to improve desizing of starch.
