  • Publication number: 20210288341
    Abstract: A substrate for a composite membrane includes a microporous polyolefin membrane for carrying a hydrophilic resin compound within the pores of the microporous membrane wherein: the average pore diameter is 1 nm to 50 nm; the porosity is 50% to 78%; the membrane thickness is 1 ?m to 12 ?m; and, when a mixed solution of ethanol and water (volume ratio ½) is dripped onto a surface of the microporous polyolefin membrane which has not undergone hydrophilization treatment, the contact angle ?1 between the droplet and the surface is 0 to 90 degrees 1 second after the dripping, and the contact angle ?2 between the droplet and the surface is 0 to 70 degrees 10 minutes after the dripping, and the rate of change of the contact angle ((?1??2)/?1×100) is 10 to 50%.
