An enzyme-based process was applied in finishing viscose fabrics, which are very susceptible to pilling because of individual loose fibres ends which protrude from surface, and impurities and fuzzes. A commercial enzyme of cellulase type Econase CE (Röhm Enzyme Finland Oy) and experimental cellulases such as endoglucanase II (EGII), cellobiohydrolase I (CBHI) and cellulase enriched with EGII (Cell, F) from the Trichoderma reesei strain prepared at VTT Biotechnology, Finland were used for modification of viscose-woven fabrics. This paper presents some results of studies concerning the estimation of the effect of enzymatic treatment on the changes in molecular and morphological structure of viscose-woven fabrics.
