The durability,laundering durability and corrosion resistance of radiation protection fabric blended by stainless steel fiber, cotton fiber and polyester fiber were studied. Radiation protection properties of samples treated with three schemes were tested. The three schemes include directly washing 100 times,immersed in simu lated seawater for 1 000 h then immersed in 10 % sodium chloride solution for 200 h and after usage of nine years. The test results show that the radiation protection of fabrics treated by the three schemes are all good. This means fiber radiation protection fabric blended by stainless steel fiber,cotton fiber and polyester fiber has better laundering durability, corrosion resistance and durability. It is considered that related national standard and evaluation system should be built as soon as possible to provide technology indexes reference for stainless steel fiber blended fabric.
