|Abstract:||Industrial trial of the enzymatic treatment of cotton knitted fabric with cellulase enzyme Denifade has been carried out under optimised conditions and the various low-stress mechanical properties of the treated fabrics have been assessed in the Kawabata system. The results show an improvement in the surface smoothness and a decrease in the bending and shear rigidities. The improvement in handle is reflected by the decrease in tensile and compressional energies.|
