Abstract
Using excimer lasers in DuPont's laboratories in Wilmington, we showed that a wide variety of nylon and polyester fabrics can be successfully irradiated to produce fabrics which combine the attractive visual and tactile aesthetics of cotton or wool fabrics with the durability, wrinkle resistance, and wash-and-wear performance of fabrics of 100 percent nylon or polyester. Extensive wear tests in such demanding end uses as bicycle pants proved that the desired aesthetic improvements were retained in use.
