Polymers play an influential role in several field of textile industry. Textile research has concentrated on the production of fiber/fabric based on polymer as well as textile fabric coated with polymers. Polyester, Polyamide, polypyrrole, polyaniline, polyacrylonitrile, polyurethane, polyacrylamide, polyvinyl chloride, polyvinyl fluoride, polyvinyl alcohol, rayon, etc., have been specified as textile service polymers. Polymers are essential chemicals for the production of textile. Polymers are used in every step of textile manufacturing from fiber manufacturing to textile coloration and finishing. Different Nanoparticles and Nano carbons have also been utilized in polymeric composites for textile-related objectives. The possibilities and combination of polymer and textile materials are endless depending on the purpose of final use.
