Polymer and textiles materials have a huge number of advantages and attractiveness based on their end use application. However, despite these advantageous, polymers have limitations, the chemical composition of polymeric materials especially surface properties like hydrophilicity, roughness, crystallinity, conductivity, lubricity, and cross-linking are required for successful application of polymers in such wide fields such as technical uses and apparel uses. In this work, it studied the effect of surface treated polyester fabric by applying sugarcane bagasse powder (SCBP) or Micro cellulose particle. the influence of some major parameters which govern the efficiency of the process such as solution pH, bagasse concentration, curing temperature, and curing time on the treatment process were investigated. the effect of this treatment on fabric moisture wettability of polyester varying the percentage of coating and amount of concentration was studied. The results found were a proof to show sugarcane bagasse can be used for surface modification of polyester fabric to enhance the moisture management. the tensile strength decreased by an average of 10.4% in the warp direction and 12.6% in the weft direction from the untreated polyester fabric. The results of this investigation clearly suggest that bagasse, a low-cost agricultural waste abundant, can be used in the surface modification of polyester fabric.
