The wetting and wicking behavior of linen treated with low-temperature oxygen and argon plasma is presented. Wetting and wicking abilities of plasma treated linen are investigated using contact angles and upward and downward water wicking methods. The downward wicking method is more suitable for distinguishing the effects of plasma treatment under various conditions.
