The application of laser technology for the environmentally- safe cleaning of industrial objects. The final goal is to manufacture dedicated workstations able to perform the developed processes.
Development of biotechnological processes for textile processing to dramatically reduce consumption of resources and environmental pollution without incurring expensive investments.
To develop specific processing systems, as reduced chrome, nonchrome, aldehyde, oxazolidine and heavy vegetable combination and /or resin tannage which gives desired blend of properties for the restauration of antique leathers.
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.
Innovation in processing technologies to manufacture medical leathers, shoe upper/linings for increased health and comfort efficiency.
Aims to investigate the physical and chemical properties of some modern textile fibres in order to develop advanced methods and norms for distinguishing them from raw materials and woven fabrics.
Aim: to investigate defects in textile yarns and fabrics then to develop procedures for recognition, classification and detection of causes and establishment of influences on quality parameters with the development of procedures for preventing and remedying negative effects.
Aims to investigate the production of fibres and fabrics with semi-permanent antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and deodorising properties.
Surgical textile materials for external and internal wound closure will be developed based on blends of biodegradable and biocompatible polyesters including synthetic analogues of biopolymers.
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.
