MS University develops protective fabric for traffic policemen
Sep '09
The Department of Textile Chemistry and Department of Clothing and Textiles in the Baroda based MS University has developed a protective fabric for the traffic police who are exposed to different environment hazards during the course of their duty.

A survey conducted earlier revealed that the traffic police were afflicted by different symptoms and disorders like tanning, skin burning, eye infection and troubles in respiratory system.

The research which is being carried out since the last three years is focusing on a protective fabric which could be immune to the daily polluted related as well as environmental hazards the traffic police faces.

Normal uniform clothing is made from cotton or blended fabrics, but the challenge before the two departments was to develop a fabric which could serve as a protective shield against the sun and other hazards.
