Functional antimicrobial finishing on textiles
19
Sep '09
Antimicrobial finishing can be applied on textiles in three different ways, each having their own merits and demerits. First option is treating the fabric through an "aqueous process" in the finishing line with the antimicrobial substance. Second is incorporating the antimicrobial into or onto the fiber itself.

The third application method is post-consumer, an additive designed to be added to the laundering water each time the product is washed. Other ways of applying antimicrobials to textiles are less common.

Some antimicrobials can be applied in several ways, but other technologies are limited to one mode of application. The application of antimicrobial agent changes depending on the product's end-use, the marketing claims made the antimicrobial's chemical and physical properties, and its mode of antimicrobial activity.
