Nano-emulsions are one type of ﬁnishing chemical used in the textile industry to modify textile morphology, either physically or chemically. In this research study 10 different Single jersey knitted fabrics(treated and untreated) having different raw materials, with same linear density of 20 tex, 0.29mm stitch length and 150 GSM are used. Air permeability, Overall moisture management capability (OMMC) and Fabric touch Tester (FTT) values were measured for all given samples. After application of silicone base nano emulsion Overall air permeability values decreases, OMMC values improved and no significant effect was found on FTT values, however this trend was different for different raw materials as well.
