Nanotechnology to give Thai fabrics extra edge

The National Nanotechnology Centre (Nanotec) and the Support Arts and Crafts International Centre of Thailand (Sacict) are collaborating in a bid to add value to traditional Thai fabrics, which include fabrics made from cotton and silk.

Nanotechnology is being applied to fabrics to give it functional applications like water-repellency, fire-retardant and anti-bacterial and in the process, also add value to the traditional fabrics.

The project is also cooperating with a private company, Thanapaisan, which has developed nano-filaments to achieve the encapsulation of fragrance as well as the anti-bacterial, water-repellent and fire-retardant qualities.

The technology is also being tried out to produce fabrics with a rose, lemon or lavender fragrance. The project seeks not only to create value-added fabrics for the textile industry, but also for the furniture industry.

There are also plans to develop a nanoresin coating technique to improve Thai silk by giving it "easy care" or "wrinkle-free" qualities. The project also envisages setting up of a pilot bi-component textile plant next year to explore production processes.
