properties of cotton 3/1 twill-woven fabrics finished with
various concentrations of reactants in the BTCA/IA/AA
combinations. The regression analysis was used to determine
the relationship among each finishing variable, BTCA, IA, and
AA concentrations, mole ratio of acid monomers to
the sodium hypophosphite monohydrate catalyst, and
curing times at 180°C, and the finished fabric's property
variable, breaking strength, tear strength, wrinkle recovery
angle whiteness index, and durable press rating. Based on
the results of the reduced regression equations and
range dispersion of mean values of finished fabric properties.
The results of the study indicated the some BTCA/IA/AA
combinations applied to cotton fabric provided good results
in wrinkle recovery angle, breaking strength, and tear
strength, comparable to those of the fabric finished with
either BTCA only or DMDHEU reactant. The combinations of
BTCA/IA/AA reactants did not provide as good whiteness index
and durable press rating as the BTCA or DMDHEU reactant.
