Abstract

Study of self - cleaning fabric modified by Cu doped TiO2 with the addition of TEOS has been done to achieve high performance of self - cleaning fabric. TiO2 doped Cu were made by using Photo Assisted Deposition (PAD) method. After that, certain compositions of the water, TEOS and Cu - TiO2 catalyst with the TEOS variated are prepared to be padded by the fabric and then dryed in the oven at certain temperature. The addition of TEOS in fabric coating is to improved the catalyst performance in self - cleaning ability and photodegradation of methylen blue. After the fabric is made, then analyzed it by using FTIR. The photodegradation is tested by puting a small amount of fabric to a methylen blue solution for 2 hours to see its absorbance using UV - Vis Spectroscopy and the self - cleaning ability test is to put the fabric in a sludge dirt for several minutes then spray it with water. FTIR result showed that the addition of TEOS cause Ti - O - Si bond to be applied in the fabric. The fabric coated with doped TiO2 has better performance than the undoped on both MB photodegradation and self - cleaning ability. The MB photodegradation performance of fabric increased with the amount of TEOS up to 74.4% within 2 hours and the efficiency of sludge dirt self - cleaning of fabric increased with the amount of fabric up to 83% efficiency, which is the type of fabric cotton Cu - TiO2 1,2% Si was the best among the other type of fabrics.
