- ItemCOMPARISON OF QUANTITATIVE METHODS FOR DETERMINING THE ANTIBACTERIAL EFFECTIVENESS OF NON-WOVEN TEXTILES(Technical University of Liberec, ) ŠČASNÍKOVÁ, KATARÍNA; SIBILOVÁ, ANDREA; BÁNOVSKÁ, ZUZANA; Technická univerzita v LiberciThis contribution is aimed at comparing two quantitative methods for determining the antibacterial effectiveness of non-woven textiles and assessment of permanence of the antimicrobial finish of the nonwoven textile materials prepared from polypropylene fibers. Experience and results obtained by the quantitative test methods specified in AATCC TM 100 and STN EN ISO 20743 intended to evaluate the effectiveness of the antibacterial finish are published in the contribution. Emphasis is placed on comparability of the selected test methods, on the test microorganism used in the study as well as on evaluation of the results of antibacterial effectiveness. The non-woven fabrics, that were the subject of the evaluation, were pre-treated by surface activation with low-temperature plasma at atmospheric pressure and subsequently finished using antimicrobial (AMB) nanosol solution with a concentration of 15 ppm Ag+, 30 ppm Ag+, 60 ppm Ag+ and 120 ppm Ag+. Antibacterial effectiveness before washing and after 5 washing cycles is demonstrated on the specific examples obtained from practice.

- ItemINFLUENCE OF SOME WINDING PARAMETERS ON HAIRINESS OF YARN AFTER WINDING PROCESS(Technical University of Liberec, ) TRAN DUC TRUNG; CHU DIEU HUONG; DAO ANH TUAN; Technická univerzita v LiberciHairiness is an important quality parameter of yarn after winding process. It affects not only the quality of yarn, but also the productivity of the warping, weaving, knitting machines as well as the quality of produced fabrics. Hairiness is influenced by the factors of raw materials, technology and equipment at all stages of yarn production. This article presents the results of experimental research on the simultaneous influence of four typical winding parameters, including: Winding speed (Z1), the load on the friction discs of the yarn tensioner (Z2), the distance between the bobbin and the yarn guide (Z3) and the pressure of package on the grooved drum (Z4) to the increasing percentage of the hairiness of the yarns after winding compared to that before winding. Yarn hairiness was measured by Uster tester 5. By using the second-order orthogonal experimental planning, together with the support of Excel 2019 and Design Expert 11 software, an experimental matrix and mathematical models describing the relationship between the four winding parameters and increasing percentage of the hairiness of three types of yarn (carded Ne 31/1 CVCD, combed Ne 30/1 CVCM, combed Ne 30/1 COCM) are established. The research result is the scientific basis for selecting the optimal winding parameters in order to achieve the required increase in hairiness of the yarn after winding or predict hairiness increase of the yarns before winding.
- ItemINFLUENCE OF MICROENCAPSULATION PARAMETERS ON THE SIZE AND MORPHOLOGY OF MICROCAPSULES BY ECO-FRIENDLY SOLVENT EVAPORATION METHOD ORIENTED TO MEDICAL TEXTILES(Technical University of Liberec, ) THUY DAO THI CHINH; SINTES-ZYDOWICZ NATHALIE; HUONG CHU DIEU; Technická univerzita v LiberciApplication of microcapsules in medical textile has been studied and commercially developed widely in recent years. The aim of this work was to propose an eco-friendly microencapsulation by solvent evaporation method that can contribute to the manufacture of medical textile products using microcapsules. Quillaja saponin was used as bio-sourced surfactant and ethyl acetate was used as the less toxic, non-halogenated organic solvent. The influences of saponin concentration, stirring speed during emulsification step and the volume of ethyl acetate used to saturate the aqueous phase before emulsification on the microcapsule size and morphology were investigated. The results showed that eudragit microcapsules of ibuprofen with diameter in range from 17 to 34 µm, which were suitable for medical textile applications, were successfully elaborated. The saponin concentration varied from 0.025 to 0.1 wt%. The stirring speed was changed from 700 to 600 rpm. The volume of ethyl acetate used in saturation step was 0, 8 and 12 ml. In the scope of investigation, the saponin concentration and the volume of ethyl acetate used in saturation step did affect the microcapsule size and morphology while the stirring speed did not. The saturation step really helped to reduce the formation of irregular microparticles and to narrow the size distribution, but the microcapsules became more porous, weaker and were deformed significantly by drying in the fabric treatment process.
- ItemRESOURCE-SAVING TECHNOLOGY OF PRODUCING TEXTILE MATERIALS WITH ANTIMICROBIAL PROPERTIES(Technical University of Liberec, ) MARTIROSYAN, IRINA; PAKHOLIUK, OLENA; DZIUBYNSKYI, ANDRII; NIKOLAICHUK, LARISA; LUTSKOVA, VIKTORIA; LUBENETS, VIRA; PEREDRIY, OKSANA; Technická univerzita v LiberciThis work is devoted to the study of antimicrobial properties of cellulose-containing textile materials treated with new safe biocidal products of thiosulfonate structure. A resource-saving method of providing antimicrobial properties to cellulose-containing textile materials is presented. High antimicrobial activity of biocidal products after washing was established. The duration of action and expediency of their use in the textile industry are proved. It is shown that after 10 washes the treated tissues lose only 14-15% of antimicrobial properties.
