FLAME RETARDANT TEXTILES FOR BEDDING AND LINEN

VISCOSE FIBRES WITH INCORPORATED SILICA ARE AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY ALTERNATIVE FOR TEXTILES WITH REDUCED FLAMMABILITY Safety requirements led to widespread use of textile products with reduced flammability. The global production of nearly 3 million tons of flame retardants generates a substantial environmental burden both during synthesis of the chemicals and disposal of [...]

USING BIODEGRADABLE ELASTOMERS IN THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY

By applying biological degradable materials, the production of textiles will be more sustainable in the future. The textile industry has fallen into environmental disrepute, due to their extensive consumption of natural resources and the lack of a sustainable waste concept for short-lived fashion. Also society shows a greater awareness regarding environmental pollution [...]

ANODIC COATING OF STAINLESS STEEL NET FOR ANTIFOULING

ANODIC COATING OF FISH-FARMING NETS AS NON-TOXIC COATING FOR ANTIFOULING PROTECTION To prevent attack of predator fish to fish farms coarse meshed stainless steel nets are used. However, if in contact with an aquatic environment, steel tends to suffer from biological fouling, which renders its use limited. Thus these steel nets have [...]

TRANSPORT ANCHORS FOR TEXTILE CONCRETE COMPONENTS

DEVELOPMENT, PRODUCTION AND TESTING OF CARBON TRANSPORT ANCHORS FOR THE TRANSPORT OF SLENDER TEXTILE CONCRETE COMPONENTS The use of textile reinforcement in precast concrete elements allows the realization of very slim components. The market for lifting and transport systems hardly offers any solutions for textile-reinforced components. With the few systems currently available, [...]

WIND TUNNEL EXPERIMENTS IN FULL SCALE – LÖFFLER

ASSESMENT OF NEW GARMENT AND MATERIAL DESIGN FOR BETTER AERODYNAMIC PROPERTIES Improvement of aerodynamic design for race suites requires a rather complex setup. Based on results made in the experimental small scale wind tunnel setup at the tccv in Dornbirn, full scale wind tunnel experiments were organized to investigate the design and [...]

TEXTILES WITH ENERGY

ENERGY GENERATION AND STORAGE ON THE BASIS OF TEXTILE-INTEGRATED ASSEMBLIES. THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO USE ENVIRONMENTAL ENERGY TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY FOR APPLICATIONS SUCH AS INTELLIGENT TEXTILES, LOW-ENERGY SENSORS, LIGHT SOURCES AND CHARGING BATTERIES. Figure 1:© TITV Greiz, Functional unit with a modular structure made up of textile-integrated energy converters, energy storage devices and energy [...]

Electrical conductive viscose fibre for smart textiles and smart home

Static dissipative viscose fibres are made accessible by deposition of copper for Smart Textiles and Smart Home applications. Although a large number of conductive materials such as metals or metal fibres are already available in the market, there is still great interest in the development of new electrically conductive substrates for applications in the [...]

Textile sensor for object scanning and inventory management record

Textile sensor has been integrated on pressure sensitivity textile to produce the smart-shelf-scan, which can detect the object through their weights and send the information wirelessly (via smart-phone) to the control room to record the information of inventory management Figure 1: Smart-Shelf-Scan of Single (left) and multiple (right) rack [...]
