Conventional repellent coatings for filtration media are mainly based on long perfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFAS), deposited through wet coating or padding process. However, PFAS are subjected to restriction by REACH and in case of PFOS (i.e. C8) banned for use. In addition, wet processes require huge inputs of energy, water, and chemicals. The growing environmental and energy-saving concerns are incentives for the well-established surface finishing industry to gradually substitute many traditional wet chemical-based textile processing by dry-finishing processes such as plasma. Until now, plasma technologies have not yet proven to be really suitable for textile applications. Problems related to current plasma sources are the difficulty to scale up them for substra­te widths beyond hundred centimeters resulting in poor uniformity and low durability of the deposited functionalities, and high OPEX.

PlasmaMAXTM developed by AGC Plasma is a cutting-edge technology designed to address different problems related to wet processes and overcome weaknesses of commercially available plasma systems. Technology core of PlasmaMAXTM is hollow cathode (HC) plasma source. This source can achieve high deposition rate with high uniformity (± 1% across 1-m web width) and allows functional coating without damaging the web. Functional coatings are deposited via plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) at low pressure. HC-PECVD is achieved by introducing reactive precursor gas in the vicinity of plasma area (see Figure 1). Chemical reactions are initiated by plasma-precursor interaction inducing the growth of functional thin-film (e.g. water repellent finish) on web surface.

In the present work, durable water repellent (DWR) and oil repellent coatings made by HC-PECVD on different types of substrate (e.g. PE woven) are shown. Then, we will discuss on how plasma parameters (i.e. pressure, power, precursor, etc.) modify the coating properties such as wettability, adhesion and so on. Finally, we will present two examples of HC-PECVD coatings, a DWR halogen-free finish and then oil repellent surface...
