Development of Durable Shrink-resist Coating of Wool with Sol-gel Polymer Processing
Knitted wool fabric was pre-treated with the serine type protease, Esperase 8.0L (EC184.108.40.206), and sodium sulphite followed by an immersion treatment with a sol-gel hybrid polymer. To enhance the durability of the sol-gel ...
Enzyme-based biotechnology for textile coloration and surface pattern
Coloration is an important process in textile finishing, which is commonly used to enhance the appearance and attractiveness of a fabric. Conventional textile coloration methods and techniques employed to create surface ...
Laccase-catalysed coloration of wool and nylon
The potential for laccase (EC 220.127.116.11) to be used within the area of textile coloration, specifically for the generation of decorative surface pattern design, remains relatively unexplored. The current study presents a ...
Enzyme Catalysed Coloration and Surface Patterning
(World Textile Information Network, 2017-01)
COLORATION IS AN important process in textile finishing, which is commonly used to enhance the appearance and attractiveness of a cloth. Conventional textile coloration methods and techniques employed to create surface ...
Selective enzymatic modification of wool/polyester blended fabrics for surface patterning
An enzyme-based process was investigated to achieve surface patterning of fabrics as an alternative to conventional chemical processes. In the current study, the enzyme protease was employed to selectively modify a ...
Innovative Technologies for Sustainable Textile Coloration and Surface Design
The environmental impact of textile dyeing and finishing is of paramount concern in the textile industry. Research into two emerging textile processing technologies, laser processing and enzyme biotechnology, were investigated ...
