Abstract : The invention relates to a process that provides a water and oil-resistant, antistatic and abrasion-resistant finish for nylon fabrics. The nylon is prepared from hexamethylenediamine and adipic acid or its derivatives. The process involves applying an aqueous emulsion containing a long chain aliphatic isocyanate, an organic fluoropolymer, and a reaction product of a water soluble polyamine having polyalkylene oxide groups and an epoxide or halohydrin compound and curing said composition on the nylon fabric at temperatures in excess of 300F.
