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.
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.
To develop a new manufacturing process, based on specific data, of garment for obese and elderly people. The paradigm is a network portal with modules/ libraries, as a guideline for designing and manufacturing fitting clothing. The network will make the joint producers-customers-market.
The main objective of the project is the development of novel multifunctional textile structures that include biological active compounds extracted from plants, to prevent the spreading of infectious diseases like borreliosis and other tick-borne bacterial diseases.
The present project proposes to create ecological, comfortable textiles which protect human body from harmful uv radiation by using natural fibers, natural dyes and nanoceramics.
