Abstract : This invention concerns itself with a process for preventing thermal shrinkage of fabric materials made from aromatic polyamide fibers. Successful pretreatment of polyamide fiber textiles can be accomplished by a process which involves treating the relaxed fabric with a silicone solution followed by a heat treatment while the fabric is held under fixed length and width dimensions.
