Effect of silicone nano-emulsion softener on physical properties of cotton fabric

  title={Effect of silicone nano-emulsion softener on physical properties of cotton fabric},
  author={D. P. Chattopadhyay and Deep Vyas},
b Received 15 April 2009; revised received and accepted 8 July 2009 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…

Review of silicon-based materials for cellulosic fabrics with functional applications

Silicone has reached our lives in various ways, and in various forms one can find silicone. We are used for textiles in clothing and industry. As in the case of adhesives, binding additives, fabric

Investigation on Regenerated Cellulosic Knitted Fabric Performance by Using Silicone Softeners with Different Particle Sizes

Silicone softeners make fabric not only softer, brighterd slippery but also more elastic in order to produce desirable handle. In this paper, the affect of silicone softeners on some mechanical and

Evaluation of Touch and Durability of Cotton Knit Fabrics Treated with Reactive Urethane-Silicone Softener

A new reactive urethane–silicone softener was developed to provide a soft touch to cotton knit fabrics with improved durability to washing and dimensional stability. The reactive urethane–silicone
