Among the techniques of modifying the properties of the surfaces applied in the industry, plasma treatment is widely used. Several studies have been conducted, especially in the last decade, analyzing textile articles of different fibers regarding the improvement of functionalities. This work evaluated the effect of plasma (corona discharge) treatment on polyamide 6.6 fabrics with elastane, establishing a comparison of the contact angle between treated and untreated samples. A significant reduction in the contact angle value of the treated samples was observed, increasing the absorption capacity of the fabric.
