Investigation of the production parameters (fibres, yarns, weaving, knitting, dyeing and finishing) for woven and knitted fabrics of high upf (ultraviolet protection factor) and optimum resistance to weather conditions.
The aim is to create new fabric structures possessing antibacterial, antistatic, thermoinsulation and therapeutic properties made of yarns containing silver fibres, for application in medical and apparel textile materials.
Development of an integrated concept for the further processing of glycerol fraction produced as a by-product in biodiesel plants, including final market product implementation in smes and hydrogen production for fuel cell systems
To exploit silver's properties to give antimicrobial, antistatic and thermo-regulating properties to textile materials. Either silver-containing yarns or novel finish formulations will be applied to this effect.
The main aim is to develop a new generation of textile products containing silver and showing antibacterial and antifungal properties for dressing materials and specific textile goods obtained through finishing methods.
