The introduction of advanced nanomaterials, especially nano fabric coatings, can greatly improve the performances of fabrics and increase the benefits of enterprises. As a new type nano material, nano fabric coatings are generally used in textile processing technology, which has been greatly developed in recent years. When nano fabric coatings are used, the appearance and style of the fabric can be changed. In addition, by using nano fabric coatings, new functions can be added into fabric, including waterproof, moisture permeable, antifouling, flame retardant and the others, which can broaden the application fields and improve the added value of the fabrics.
