This track will feature presentations on advances in green chemistries and biosurfactants for textile processing, nontraditional flame retardant finishes, managing risk in a changing regulatory environment, and assessing validity claims for bamboo fibers.

Biologically inspired fibrous materials, composites and personal protection are the focus of the sessions for the Materials Track. Highlighting this track will be presentations on the high-performance fiber properties and biocompatibility of spider silk, lunar wheel treads made of polymeric fabrics, innovative manufacturing and industrial applications for 3D woven and 3D braided fabrics composites, textile-based bio-sensor technologies for personal protection and performance attributes to textiles from activated carbon made from coconut shells.
