Anti-wrinkle treatment of fabrics makes rapid strides
Apr '09
The way people like to avoid wrinkles on their skin, they do not want it on their clothes either. To avoid wrinkles on cotton clothes, it is mixed with other synthetic fibres.

Wrinkles were unavoidable in 100% cotton clothes. Researchers are now working on the concept of treating the fabric before the dyeing process, instead of dyeing it first as done now.

Generally, cotton fibers are spun into yarn, woven into fabric, and then dyed, and the last part of the process is treating it with a 'cross-linking' resin.

The applications of formaldehyde based reagents that are used to create these apparels are now creating ripples all across the globe, though they have also met with concerns for human health and environment.

Researchers have now come up with a technique to treat fabrics with the anti-wrinkle finish and then dye the cotton fabrics after the treatment is done.

Currently, cotton fabrics are dyed before the anti-wrinkle treatment because, once treated, the fabric tends to repel dyes.

Wrinkle free finishing, if is able to capture a larger share of the market, will make ironing a faded memory, and liberate women from the rigid task of ironing.
