Application of crosslinking agent to impart wrinkle recovery property on cotton fabrics is very popular for textile industry. This paper represents the effect of different crosslinking agent on the physical properties and the wrinkle recovery of cotton knit fabric. Here five different types of crosslinking agent from three different chemical companies were used. The work was divided into two parts .At first; crosslinking agents were applied on cotton fabric than various related tests were done on the treated and untreated fabric. Better crease resistancy was found on the finishing agent having high formaldehyde content .The other important properties like tensile strength, dimensional stability, stiffness, abrasion resistance pilling resistance and areal density was studied here. Among them some properties were improved and some were fall down.

Keywords: Cotton, Crosslinking agent, Formaldehyde content, Crease, Bursting strength.

Article published in International Journal of Current Engineering and Technology, Vol.8, No.2 (March/April 2018)
