Author(s): Anju Tulshyan and Dr. Ela Dedhia
There is a need to develop fabrics with special finishes. With the help of technological advancement researchers can bring about innovation in fabrics. The purpose of the study is to investigate the technology that can be used for application of functional finishes on fabrics. This review paper investigates the techniques applied in the formation of the microcapsules, its purpose, and method of application for fixing it on textiles, the binders and polymers used and release of aroma. There are various release mechanisms which can be applied as per the requirement or end use. The essential oils used are highly volatile in nature hence very difficult to maintain the durability of the finish in terms of storage and washability. In this review, microencapsulation techniques of application to obtain innovative fabrics for the textile sector has been highlighted.
