Based on chemical type, the textile finishing chemicals market can be segmented into textile auxiliaries, textile colorants, and textile finishes. Textile auxiliaries are chemicals that cover a major range of functions. These chemicals help textile in self- cleaning, smoothing, and improving its easy care properties. Examples of textile auxiliaries include complexing agents, surfactants, wetting agents, and dispersing agents. Textile colorants are chemicals that help in coloring protecting textiles and making them attractive. Examples of textile colorants include dyes, dye-protective agents, fixing agents, pH regulators, and UV absorbers. Textile finishes are chemicals that are utilized to attain very specific properties in the material. Examples of textile finishes include antimicrobial agents, binders, and UV stabilizers.
Based on method of application, the textile chemicals market can be segregated into exhaust application and pad-dry cure application. The pad-dry cure application is the most widely utilized method for application of finishing chemicals to textiles. In the exhaust application method, chemicals with a strong affinity to fibers are applied over the textile by the exhaustion process. Chemicals with low affinity for fibers are applied by pad-dry cure application. This process involves padding with chemical solution, squeezing, drying, and curing for fixation. There are two types of pad-dry cure application methods. One for wet fabric and the other for dry fabric. In the pad-dry cure application method for dry fabric, the fabric is passed through the chemical finish solution. In the pad-dry cure application method for wet fabric, finishing chemicals are directly applied on the wet surface of the fabric to avoid the cost of drying after dyeing.
