the basic process for imparting the

involves applying a resin into the
fabric, drying and curing at
extremely high temperatures to the
desired dimension, scouring to
remove any residual chemicals, and
final drying. The application and
curing of wrinkle-free may occur
before or after the garments are
produced. "Precured wrinkle-free"
means that the finish has been
applied to the fabric before the
garment has been manufactured.
Because the "postcure wrinkle-free"
means that the finish has been
applied after the garment has been
manufactured and because the
