What is Frosting?

Frosting, a process of finishing textiles, involves the application of thin layers of chemicals or colorants onto the fabric's surface to create a matte or frosted appearance, using techniques like brushing, spraying, or printing.

This technique is predominantly employed for synthetic fibers such as rayon, polyester, or nylon, which often possess a shiny, reflective appearance that some may find unpleasant. By applying a frosted finish, the fabric obtains a more refined and muted look, making it ideal for various applications, such as apparel, upholstery, and home decor.

Aside from its decorative function, frosting can serve practical purposes. For example, it helps to minimize glare or reflections from light sources, thus enhancing the comfort level of the fabric in particular environments.

Additionally, it can promote the durability of the fabric by providing a protective coating that resists harm from environmental factors, such as moisture or sunlight.
