Abstract

In the textile industry, disposing the waste products after dyeing causes a major environmental issue. The mordants used leads to adverse effect for the human and other living organisms. Plasma processing is ecofriendly and it does not produce any waste, pollution free on the environment. Therefore, low temperature plasma treatments are set to make a revolution in textile industry. The present work is to modify the surface of cotton fabric by oxygen plasma treatment with operating parameters such as exposure time, discharge potential and base pressure are kept constant as 5 min, 400V and 9 Pascal respectively. The surface roughness of the fabric is analyzed by laser speckle technique for plasma treated and mordanted fabric and then corresponding results were reported. Further, we observed the increase in surface roughness of the fabric after plasma treatment.
