Abstract

Plasma technology is an effective way to modify the physicochemical properties of silk fabric. This study was a preliminary study to explore the dyeability of silk fabric with metal complex dyes after treated with plasma technology, which may improve the processability and broaden the application of silk fabric. This study investigated the optimal plasma treatment condition and evaluated treated silk fabric in terms of wettability, surface modification and dyeability. It was found that plasma treatment can enhance the wettability and dyeability of silk fabric via the formation of hydrophilic functional groups in the structure of silk fiber.
