Abstract: Nanotechnology has the ability to change the molecular structures, and then create new properties of various fabrics. The application of nanotechnology to textiles preserves the breathability of fabric and modifies textile materials to improve properties such as water and oil-repellancy. Researchers have been trying to use nanotechnology in the production of speciality fabrics such as anti-ultraviolet (UV) light, anti-bacterial, infrared-absorbent or repellent and fire-retardant fabrics, which are suitable for fabricating military clothing, medical clothing, and fireman's uniforms. To optimize the functional performance of textiles to a great extent, statistical modeling of fractional factoral design and response surface is recommended. The fractional factoral designs can be used to select the important variables for the process under investigation. These designs are used as the screening experiment to prioritize the importance of parameters in nano-treatment, while response surface modeling is used to provide a three-dimensional (3-D) presentation of optimum working conditions for nano-treatment.
