The impact of incorporating functional active materials to textile finishes offers important new technical advantages for the industry. Microencapsulation offers a delivery mechanism for the active material to be applied to the textile. Critical to the process is the development of the correct encapsulation system to produce a capsule with good mechanical strength, durability, and provide the desired release mechanism of the active material from the textile surface.
