In this study, polyamide monofilament yarn of 3000 tex was coated with graphene oxide (GO) nanomaterial using dip-coating method. The graphene oxide layer was then reduced with green chemical reduction method, resulting in a reduced graphene oxide-coated monofilament yarn. The properties of the graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide-coated polyamide monofilament yarns were characterized by performing physical, electrical, optical, and morphological investigations. The lowest sheet resistance was measured from seven-layer graphene-coated polyamide monofilament yarn as 3.09 k omega/sq. Moreover, it was measured that 90 degrees and 180 degrees bent seven-layer graphene-coated polyamide monofilament yarns had 3.57 and 3.81 k omega/sq sheet resistance, respectively. Additionally, while PA monofilament yarn has 73.5% transmittance at 550 nm; seven-layer GO and seven-layer graphene have 18.8 and 4.5%, respectively, as expected. On the other hand, the contact angle increased with the reduction of graphene oxide layer on monofilament yarn. The fabricated graphene-coated polyamide monofilament yarns can be used in electrotextiles, solar cells, sensors, and OLEDs as fiber-shaped flexible electrodes.
