Changes of crystalline structure of poly(ethylene terephthalate) fibers in flame retardant finishing process (in English)
Polimery 2014, No 7-8, 557
The poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) fibers of improved flammability were investigated. The modification applied to classic PET fibers consisted in a wet flame-retardant treatment of the fabrics during the dyeing process. In this study we took an attempt to describe the supermolecular structure of the flame retardant PET fibers with different content of the modifier as a function of a temperature of the flame retardant finishing process and additionally the structure transformation during the ageing process. To evaluate the crystalline structure of fibers differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and wide angle X-ray scattering measurements (WAXS) were used.
