Abstract:Waterproof and breathable membranes (WBM) have diverse applications in outdoor apparel, wearable electronics, and medical hygiene because they can withstand liquid water penetration while simultaneously transmitting water vapor. Nevertheless, developing potential nontoxic WBM based on ecologically friendly solvents remains a significant issue. Therefore, we prepared polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) waterproof and permeable membranes (PWBM) with a remarkable moisture transfer rate of 11.9 kg m −2 d −1 , a high hy… Show more
