|Title:||Effect of wrinkle resistance finish on cotton fabric properties|
|Keywords:||Breaking strength;Crease resistant finish;Pilling performance;Tearing strength;Wrinkle recovery angle|
|Abstract:||The effect of crease resistant finish on wrinkle recovery, breaking strength, tearing strength and pilling performance of 100 % cotton plain fabrics has been studied. Desizing, scouring and crease resistant finishing have been performed on the fabric and their effects are observed. A statistical analysis using a paired t-test with the significance level of = 0.05 has been performed to determine if a statistically significant difference exists among fabric properties using the above processes. It is observed that no statistically significant change occurs on the fabric properties from scouring. However, the changes due to crease resistant finish are found to be statistically significant. In addition, the wrinkle recovery angle increases approximately 50%, and breaking strength and tear strength decrease about 25%, and pilling performance reduces 59% after the crease resistant finishing.|
