Abstract

Self-cleaning fabrics have aroused attention in recent years by showing great potential in changing our life style to a more environmental friendly way. Although efforts have been devolved to boost the efficiency of photocatalytic self-cleaning functions, there have been limited studies with regard to the effect of the self-cleaning finishing on fabric properties. One of the criteria in determining the usability of a fabric is its mechanical properties. In order to enhance the practicability of the self-cleaning coating treatment and widen its application, the effect of a titanium dioxide photocatalytic coating on the low-stress mechanical properties of the fabrics is studied.
