Functional textiles are mainly focused and developed for their performance in the particular field. Presently, Activated carbon is used in most of the field and it has the remarkable adsorption and odour control properties at low cost and better efficiency. In this study, Activated carbon is used as a functional material especially for Anti-Microbial and Odour control finishing on textile fabric. Regarding to this function, Activated charcoal is applied in the surface of the fabric by direct application and Micro encapsulation. Finished fabrics are assessed the effectiveness of the anti-microbial property through disc diffusion method which against the microorganisms of staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Aspergillus niger. The odour measurement are conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the anti odour property through organoleptic test (in house method). The carbon coated fabric shows the Good functional properties.
