    Research output: Patent

    Abstract

    A garment (collar or cuff) or other fabric article having increased resistance to wet or dry abrasion, particularly at edge portions, is made by constructing at least those portions of the article having an abradable edge using pre-treated fabric, or untreated fabric and then subsequently treating the fabric during the manuf. of the article, the treatment comprising (a) an epichlorohydrin adduct of a polyamide-polyamine derived from a dicarboxylic acid and a dialkylene triamine, in particular a polyamide-polyamine having a repeating unit (COR1CONHR2NHR3NH), where R1 is present or absent and R1 (when present), R2, and R3 = alkylene group with 1-4 C atoms or an arylene group; or with (b) a UV-curable high mol. wt. urethane acrylate or dimethacrylate resin and subsequent curing by heat or UV-radiation resp.
