Abstract
The polyester (100%), cotton (100%) and Polyester / Cotton blend fabrics (65 / 35; 50 / 50 & 35 / 65) were treated with sodium hydroxide followed by hydrophilic finishing and dyeing to impart hygroscopic and dyeing characteristics. Then the finished fabric was tested for k/s value, fastness properties, wetting behaviour, water retention, wicking behaviour and static charge respectively. The sodium hydroxide treated and hydrophilic finished fabrics show improved k/s value with good fastness properties (wash, light and rubbing), wetting, water retention and wicking behaviour that consequently leads for the reduction of static charge. The Polyester / Cotton blend fabrics after sodium hydroxide treatment and hydrophilic finishing showed very good improvement in these characteristics.
