In this experiment the durability of the crease-resistant finishing of silk fabric with trimethylol melamine to home laundering is tested. Using trimethylol melamine as a crosslinking agent in the chemical finishing process is found to improve the dry and wet resilience of silk. The batch method gives better penetration of the finish and increases tensile strength compared to the normal pad-dry-cure method.
