Abstract:

Barrier properties against ultraviolet radiation and the light stability of polypropylene (PP) fibres are very important for light-weight summer fabrics as well as for leisure and sport wear. What is more, the thermal stability of PP composites is required in the spinning process and in the thermal treatment of fibres and fabric. In this paper the effect of selected inorganic nanofillers, such as boehmites (aluminas), organoclays, nano TiO2 and multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) on the UV barrier properties, photo-oxidation and thermal stability of PP composite fibres was studied. Correlations between the UV barrier properties, light stability and thermal stability of PP composite fibres are also discussed.
