Plasma treatments are gaining popularity in textile industry & have to be controlled carefully to avoid detrimental action of plasma on substrate. Surface treatments show distinct advantages, because they are able to modify surface properties of inert materials, sometimes with environment friendly devices. Application of "Plasma Technology" in chemical processing is revolutionary way to enhance textile wet processing right from pretreatments to finishing.

Partially ionized gas composed of electrons, ions, photons, atoms and molecules, with negative global electric charge. It is called as Plasma Technology. Irving Langmuir first used the term plasma in 1926. Describe the inner region of an electrical discharge. Plasma, as a very reactive material, can be used to modify the surface of a certain substrate typically known as plasma activation or plasma modification.
