Abstract

Copper Containing Coatings for Metallized Textile Fabrics

Compared to silver modified textiles, textiles modified with copper components are less prominently mentioned in literature. Therefore, the aim of the now presented paper is to present an overview on different copper functionalized textiles. For this presentation, two types of fabrics are taken into account – commercially available copper plated polyamide and textiles coated with copper containing effect pigments. The surface properties and the composition of those materials are presented in detail. Optical properties are determined in the arrangements of diffuse reflection and diffuse transmission for UV-, visible- and IR-light. Hints on probable applications in the fields of radiation protection are reported.
