Finishing is a key process in the textile pipeline. It is used to confer different properties to textiles while maintaining the same basic characteristics of the raw material. It enables a very high flexibility of applications and the growing awareness for health, hygiene, safety and environmental protection has increased the demand for more effective and flexible surface treatments. The advent of nanoscience and nanotechnology is opening to the process new frontiers. "Nanofinishing" is getting an increasing attention that concerns both wet and dry finishing processes.
