Special Finishes

Special finishes uses on textile materials to enable it to use for special purposes such as the finishing of fabrics with flame retardants can reduce the tendency to burn or reduce the tendency to propagate the flame. Laminating is the permanent joining of two or more prefabricated fabrics.

Water & Oil Repellents

Water and oil repellency are among the most common functional properties necessary for protective clothing. These properties can be conferred by the modification of the surface energy of textile fibers, possibly confined to a thin surface layer, so that the bulk properties of the fabric, such as mechanical strength, flexibility, breath-ability, and softness remain un-compromised [1,2]. The modification routes should meet the criteria of green chemistry as much as possible. In particular, the use of harmless solvents and non-toxic chemicals should be a characteristic of the process. This principle, in agreement with the ecological orientation of industrial textile chemistry, limits in a significant way the number of viable strategies and reactions. Among them, photo-grafting by UV light combines the inherent benefits of photo-chemical initiation, namely a fast,versatile,efficient process and the advantage of a surface grafting that does not modify the bulk properties nor degrade the fiber structure

Anti Microbial

Textile materials are not only related to microorganisms such as pathogenic bacteria, odour generating bacteria and mould fungi, but also good media for growth of microorganisms. Nowadays people are very conscious about hygiene and cleanliness. Microbial infestation poses danger to both living and non-living matters. Obnoxious smell from the inner garments such as socks, spread of diseases, staining and degradation of textiles are some of the detrimental effects of bad microbes. Though the use of antimicrobials have been known for the decades, it is only in the recent couple of years several attempts have been made on finishing textiles with antimicrobial compounds.

Flame Retardants

As the whole environment is going highly technical and risky, the demand for specially treated textile such as flame resistant fabric has grown significantly. In the process of meeting with these demands, synthetic fiber has played a significant role. However, along with many advantages, these synthetic fabrics are also prone to fire. Whether it is concerned with the various electrical or electronics items in offices or dealing with highly flammable materials in other places including hotels, hospitals and even homes, the need for protective clothing is felt every where. The textile industry has found the solution by developing flame retardant finish for synthetic fibers like polyester fabrics, nylon fabrics, polypropylene fabrics etc. By applying flame retardants, fabrics are made flame resistant.
