Abstract: Durable press finishing is an effective way to produce wrinkle-resistant cotton fabrics but with a loss in tearing strength of fabrics. In this paper, full factors and orthogonal experiments were carried out to investigate mechanism between the wrinkle recovery and tearing strength of cotton plain fabric. Wrinkle recovery angle (WRA) of the specimen was tested by AATCC Test Method 66-2003. Fabric tearing strength, interwoven resistance and yarn strength were tested before and after resin treatment by tensile testing machine. With the use of full factors experiment, it can be concluded that the fabric specimen achieved the best wrinkle-free performance at 110°C curing temperature, 3.0 minutes curing time, 80% pick-up and 60g/l resin concentration. It was revealed that after resin treatment, there was an improvement in the WRA but at the same time fabric lost tearing strength due to reduction in yam friction and yarn tenacity.
