Abstract: The surface properties of materials are often the important determinants of their usefulness, and many of the chemical treatments now in use are aimed at modifying these properties. The important properties of polymer materials such as adhesion, friction, wetting, penetrability and biological compatibility are strongly influenced by their surface characteristics. Low Temperature Plasma (LTP) is a technology which can produce not only interesting morphological modification on the surface of the polymers, but also can replace less environmental-friendly finishing processes. In this paper, four non-polymerizing plasma gases: oxygen, argon, tetrafluoromethane and 75%/25% nitrogen/hydrogen mixture were used to modify Nylon 6 filaments and fabrics. The results of SEM study reveals that interesting morphological changes on the surface of treated samples. Besides, with the appropriate LTP treatment, the fabric properties, such as the hydrophobicity of polyamides, surface luster, etc. can be greatly modified.
