Hua Mao Biotech invents novel fibre technology

Jul '10
A novel process, has been invented by a Taiwanese company, which uses jade fibre to produce textile that can offset heat and absorb water as well as offers protection against asbestos, keeping wearers cool and dry.

This multifunctional textile has been developed by Hua Mao Biotech, a company sponsored by the government's Small Business Innovation Research Project. Clothing made of jade fibre can reduce wearer's skin temperature by around 1.2 degree and humidity by 19 degrees.

According to the company, jade is created into tiny strands of 400 nanometer diameter, which are about 300 times smaller than human hair, to amplify its heat-diffusing properties. This fibre is locally mined and categorized as amphibole.

The clothing made of this material would be 1.2 to 1.5 times costlier than the other products, said the company. It is likely to generate a market value of NT $200 million per year.

The company further informed that, the fibre technology of Taiwan has been adopted by a number of international firms. Baleno and Edwin jeans are among those fibre technologies.

Anticipating cooperation opportunities, the company has already signed a contract with two sports brands.
