Abstract: The effect of silicone nano-emulsion softener against silicone conventional emulsion softener on the physical properties of cotton fabric has been studied. It is observed that the nano-emulsion softener improves the feel, softness and crease recovery to a higher extent compared to the conventional emulsion softener. However, the nano form of emulsion causes higher loss in strength with increased elongation-at-break. The water absorbency of nano-emulsion treated fabric is found to be poorer than that of the conventional emulsion.
