Abstract(s)This work aims to assess the relationship between the mechanical and the thermal properties of summer bed linen using different softener formulations in home textiles finishing. Objectively, we intend to study the effect of different softeners and their concentrations, based on non-ionic polyethylene dispersions and a cationic silicone softener micro-emulsion on textile properties. The research shown that thermal related properties are influenced by polyethylene softeners, while the silicone softener influences the mechanical behavior of the tested samples. Finally, selected softened samples of bed linen were evaluated by a dry thermal manikin to validate some conclusions.
