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 (EC220.127.116.11), and sodium sulphite followed by an immersion treatment with a sol-gel hybrid polymer. To enhance the durability of the sol-gel ...
Laccase-catalysed coloration of wool and nylon
The potential for laccase (EC 18.104.22.168) 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 ...
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 ...
