Nano-particles of ceramics create functional fabrics

Currently, more and more bizarre materials are being considered for the purpose of manufacturing fabrics and clothing. Researchers in China are now researching development of fabrics from ceramics, which can be further used to make clothes.

Research papers indicate that, clothing produced from ceramic not only has anti-bacterial effect, but also has other health benefits, such as improving metabolism and promoting blood circulation in the human body.

Mr Wu Jinqian, a research scientist explains that products like bowls, porcelain, ceramic tiles, etc, made from ceramic are essentially natural minerals, but their properties are not stable nor are either suitable for producing fabrics for clothing.

Only extremely subtle ceramics with stable chemical properties can be made into clothing and in order to achieve this goal, researchers break ceramic into ultra-fine (nanometer level) powder by using nano-technology.

Giving an analogy to explain the size and concept of a nano particle, Mr Wu says, “When a nano-sized object is placed on the table tennis table, it is equivalent to putting a ping-pong ball on the planet.”

He continues by saying, “When we break ceramic particles into a hundreds of thousands of nano-particles, its chemical properties become very stable, due to which it is possible to add a variety of health care elements into it according to actual needs.”

Researchers from the Fine Ceramic Lab of Tsinghua University have finally invented a micro-capsule coating technology through tireless efforts. This technology coat is put as an outer layer of organic film on fine ceramic particles and is then melted into high molecular organic materials, such as cotton, hemp, leather at a temperature of more than 200 degrees, which allows inorganic ceramic and organic fibers to combine, to create a variety of nano-ceramic daily commodities with functional properties.
