Özet

The aim of this study is to investigate the nanocoated textile fabric samples with Al and Zn metal materials in terms of EMI (electromagnetic interference) and UV/IR (ultraviolet/infrared) shielding properties. For this purpose, the thermal vacuum evaporation method has been utilized for coating textile fabric samples with Al and Zn coating materials. The observation of the coverage of coated fabrics is carried out by using SEM analysis. Both Zn and Al coating are found effective to improve the EMI and UV/IR shielding properties of textile samples. In addition, Zn coating is found to be more effective to improve the EMI and UV/IR shielding properties of textile fabric samples. Especially, the Zn-coated fabric samples exhibited high effective UV-A (<420 nm wavelength) shielding property. In both fabric samples, the strong absorption frequency regions have been observed in EMI absorption analysis.
