dcterms.abstractWool fabric was treated with low temperature plasma (LTP) which was considered as an environmentally friendly treatment for wool fibre. In the wool fibre, the presence of scale structure on the wool fibre surface introduces a number of problems such as felting and surface barrier to dyestuff in wool industry. In the past, chemical methods were the major treatment for eliminating those problems. However, the effluents generated from wool dyeing and finishing processes are seriously contaminated with different kinds of chemicals, e.g. chloro-organic compounds from antifelting process. With the increasing of ecological and economical restrictions imposed on the textile industry, environmentally favourable alternatives were required in wool treatment processes. LTP method developed rapidly in the past decade has been introduced to the textile industry.-
dcterms.abstractIn this paper, the LTP treated wool fabric was tested with different international standard testing methods and the results were compared with the industrial requirements. It was revealed that the LTP treated wool could fulfil the industrial requirements. The results of the investigation were discussed thoroughly in this paper.-
