Production of Non-flammable Cotton Fibers by Using Carbon Nanotubes

Abstract:
Light-weight non-flammable nanocomposite coatings for cotton fibers were produced by a group of Iranian researchers, using carbon nanotubes and an anti-flammable monomer under UV radiation.

Story:
"The research has been carried out in order to create non-flammability properties on cotton fibers by using carbon nanotubes and an anti-flammable monomer under the radiation of UV," Arash Almasian, a member of the Institute of Colorants, Paints and Coatings (ICPC), stated about the research.

"Fibers resistant against heat and fire were produced by using nanotechnology. By using the compound of non-flammable monomer and the non-flammable complementary carbon nanotube, it was found out that the properties of the fibers improved much more than the use of each of them individually on the cotton fibers, and the non-flammability properties increased a few times. Carbon nanotube must be present in the operation bath in form of dispersed, so it can be coated homogenously on the fibers. An appropriate dispersion is obtained by functionalizing the carbon nanotube. On the other hand, non-flammable monomer is placed like a bridge between the fibers and nanotubes, and it stabilizes them on the fibers," he added.

Taking into consideration the high flammability of cotton fibers, the application of this plan on cotton clothes is essential. It can also have various applications in domestic textile and non-flammable cloths too.

Results of the research have been published in Composites: Part B, vol. 45, issue 1. For more information about the details of the research, visit pages 282-289 of the same journal.
