Textile Finishing is any operation (other than preparation and colouring) that improves the appearance and/or usefulness of fabric after it leaves the loom or knitting machine. Finishing is the final series of operations that produces finished textile fabric from grey goods. Textile finishing usually includes treatments such as scouring, bleaching, dyeing and/or printing, the final mechanical or chemical finishing operations etc.
Fabrics to be used as raincoats, umbrellas, and tarpaulins have to be treated with chemicals to give them a property which makes them water resistant. The finish is called waterproofing and it is a durable finish. Water repellant finish is different from water proof finish. It means water, if showered on the fabric briefly, cannot make the fabric wet.
Dyeing operations are used at various stages of production to add colour and intricacy to textiles and increase product value. It chemically changes a substance so that the reflecting light appears coloured.
