    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Coatings by different techniques, mainly in the form of films or particles, have been extensively used to functionalize filaments in the textile industry. In this study, electrospinning was employed to coat polymeric nanofibres on Poly (ethylene terephthalate) multi- and mono-filaments. The parameters in the coating process including solution concentration, coating time, coating distance, electric field and flow rate, were systematically investigated to determine their effects on the resultant coating. The coating morphology and durability were examined by means of scanning electron microscopy and abrasion testing, respectively. Results showed that nanofibres coating on filaments with various morphologies, exhibiting some degree of durability was achieved. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
