Presented by S. G. Saha  on 30th Mar, 2016

The lecture dwells on the development of aroma finishing for home textile application on natural and blended textiles including jute. Thetechnology uses  microencapsulated aroma oils with binders that can impart durable finishing for 15 home washings. SEM photographs of aroma treated fabrics show the adherence of aroma capsules to the fabrics. The method of application is by pad-dry-cure like other chemical finishing.This aroma finishing technology has potential for commercialization for jute and jute blended fabrics for home textiles.
