Plasma technique can be used to improve the surface characteristics of polyamide fabric with elastane through surface modification. In this study, the Polyamide fabrics with elastane treated with low-temperature, low-pressure, radio frequency argon plasma were investigated. After treated with the Plasma, in order to observe the effect of plasma treatment, fabrics were characterized and examined by the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The changes in surface roughness and etching effect was observed. SEM analyses showed that the surface roughness increased due to the etching effect of the plasma treatment, leading to the improvement of the making the fabric conductive via different coating approaches for E-Textile applications.
