Abstract: Central composite design a response surface methodology approach is used for design the experiments, by fluctuating the accompanying three parameters namely fabric heating temperature, peroxide dosing time 1 and peroxide dosing time 2, at five levels to investigate their effects on the quality of the fabric i.e. fabric GSM and fabric width. Twenty experiments are planned using RSM and from the detailed examination of the results and testing of the varying input parameters for their significance at 95% confidence interval using ANOVA technique by “Design expert version 8 of stat ease Inc” were performed to calculate the percentage contribution of the input parameters and their interactions on the responses. From the results of the response surface model it is found that the optimized parametric combination for obtaining the required quality of fabric as per the requirement of MOL i.e. fabric GSM 150 and fabric width 180 cm; are very much achievable by using the identified parametric combinations namely fabric heating temperature as 90C, peroxide dosing time 1 as 5 minutes and peroxide dosing time 2 as 7.5 minutes.
