Özet

In this study, it was aimed to obtain multifunctional cotton fabrics which would have durable press and antibacterial properties and satisfy the expectations of the consumers in terms of soft touch and easy care. In the scope of this project, more than one function would be given to the cotton fabric in a single step and thus energy, time and water would be saved as well as production costs. As a result of the project, used chemicals were applied in one step by pad-dry-cure method. It was determined that this work showed better performance characteristics and the resulting effects were resistant to 20 times washing when compared with the current applied processes. It was also determined that at least 50% reduction in costs and in the process time was achieved.
