The manufacturing process within the textile industry is long and has many chemical treatments. The procedure includes the pretreatment, dyeing, printing, and refinement of fabrics. Pretreatment chemicals include a host of different surfactants with many designed for specific uses.

Scours, wetting agents, and bleach aids are all used in the first step to prepare the textile substrate for the next step in manufacturing. Dyeing chemicals include solubilizers, compatibilizers, dispersants, and leveling agents. Dyeing chemicals are used for garments or drapery. Printing chemicals include leveling agents, thickeners, and binders. Finally, finishing chemicals such as softeners, lubricants, or other specialty chemicals may be added to entice the consumer to purchase.
