Polyfunctional Application on Modified Cotton Fabric

A simple and facile method for fabricating the cotton fabric with flame retardancy is adopted in the present work. This study deals with crosslinking of cotton fabric using different polycarboxylic acids such as citric acid and 1,2,3,4-butane tetracarboxylic acid and using different catalysts such as sodium hypophosphite and sodium propionate through conventional pad-dry-cure method for flame-retardant application. The results exhibited moderate waterproofing durability and flame retardancy of the cotton fabric after treatment, offering a good opportunity to accelerate the large-scale production textile materials for new industrial applications.
