This paper investigates the parameters of atmospheric pressure plasma (APP) jet for enhancing the hydrophobicity of polyester surface in imitation leather with a precursor of tetramethylsilane. A wide range of process parameters were studied. Under a specific combination of process parameters, a hydrophobic surface was obtained on the APP-treated sample with good hydrophobicity to water, coffee as well as milk tea.
