Abstract

We have performed the electrospraying process via a conventional configuration for the application of nanoparticles, used for water and oil repellency of textile fabrics, onto the surface of the textile to avoid undesirable agglomeration of those particles. This approach shows by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images that such an application (electrospraying) would avoid agglomeration by using the electrostatic forces produced and gave acceptable oil repellency, which also points to commercial market interest.
