The article discusses a study which compared glyoxal and glutaraldehyde to determine an optimal dialdehyde crosslinking agent and evaluated effects of dialdehyde finishing on dyed cotton fabrics. The dialdehydes have been recommended as durable press (DP) finishing reagents of cellulosic fibers. Results showed that the conditioned and wet wrinkle recovery angles (CWRA and WWRA) of the fabrics treated with glutaraldehyde were higher than those of the glyoxal-treated fabrics at the same dialdehyde concentration and curing temperature. An actual mole of glutaraldehyde used in the bath should be less than that of glyoxal since a molecular size of glutaraldehyde is larger.
