Thesis Title: Electrospinning of water-repellent depositions onto textile surfaces, and improvement of durability using atmospheric pressure plasma
Thesis Author: Michael D. Sieber
Abstract: Repellency of fabric surfaces to water or chemical species is a critical need for many textile products. Examples potential of users include military or for those handling hazardous materials. Traditionally, water-repellent textile surfaces have been obtained by surface chemical treatments, which are often water- and chemically-intensive.
