Abstract : Light and rot resistant properties may be given to cellulose through the effects of thiazolodines on copper-bearing cellulose. Tests on modified cotton cloth under standard conditions showed that the introduction of copper and Captax (Benzothiazole-2-thiol) into the cellulose imparts high light and weather resistance to it. Thus, under exposure to a PRK-2 lamp (75 deg temperature) for periods of 5, 10, 15, and 20 hours, the durability of unprocessed cotton cloth (sheeting) was respectively 78.6, 77.0, 68.8, and 68.0% of the original, whereas the durability of cloth modified with copper and Captax with v=6 and v-16 was 100% in all cases. The conclusion may be made on the basis of the conducted tests that cellulose fibers possessing high chemical, light, and weather resistivity are obtained from the effects of 2-mercaptobenzothiazole solutions on low-substituted cellulose complexes.
