What is "Crease Resistance" - Definition & Explanation

A term used to indicate the capability of a textile material to resist creases or recover from creases (or both) incidental to use.
The capacity of cellulosics to resist creasing. These fabrics can be impregnated with a monomer or precondensate which is polmerised to a thermo-set resin. This process confers increased recovery on the fabric thereby minimising creasing.
A fabric finish often used with linen and cotton to help the fabric resist wrinkles and creases.
