NanoHorizons announced that Dennis Schneider, Director of Marketing and Sales, will present "Nanotechnology Applications in Fibers and Fabrics" at this year's Techtextil North America Symposium, on March 29th.

The Techtextil North America Symposium, in its fourth year, is an internationally recognized and attended trade show and symposium for the technical textiles and nonwovens industry. The event brings together the industry's leading companies for education, networking and business development.

Schneider's company, NanoHorizons, recently launched its line of nanoscale-engineered SmartSilver permanent anti-odor/antimicrobial additives, offering a safe and cost-effective method to enhance fibers and fabrics in a manner compatible with existing manufacturing processes. SmartSilver-modified fibers can be used to create odor-resistant shoe linings, T-shirts, socks, gloves, carpets and more. Coating and solids applications of SmartSilver are available directly from NanoHorizons.

Schneider's presentation at Techtextil, "Nanotechnology Applications in Fibers and Fabrics" will address how nanotechnology is rapidly changing the nature and capability of fibers and fabrics for a wide range of applications.
"Nano" has become perhaps the most misused prefix in common usage. A Google search for the term "nanotechnology" results in 47 million Web pages (compared to only 15 million Web pages for polyester, which was introduced in 1941). Only a very small percentage of these Web pages refer to materials which represent genuine applications of anotechnology. "Real" nanotechnology applications entail the creation of engineered structures with features smaller than 100 nanometers (1nm = billionth of a meter).
