Nov '10
The Aitex Comersan enterprise and the Institute for Textile Technology have jointly come up with a multi-specialist fabric called 'Focus Alfa', which merges the decorative characteristics with various technical properties like the sound absorbing capacity. This has been revealed in a statement by the people involved in the project.

According to the sources, the fabric, which is used for manufacturing blinds, panels and curtains, has been developed after one year's research. The technical properties of the fabric completely mingle with its ornamental traits and enhance the quality of the room in which it is being used.

This textile product, which is already accessible in the market, restricts the intensity of sound and enhances its quality, which supports communication between people. The technical properties have made the fabric more long-lasting, good for health and usable. The fabric also has fire resistant properties.

At present, the excessive noise bore by people all through the day at home, work and street, has become a growing menace which causes several health problems and also poses socio-economic threats. This multi-specialist fabric absorbs the excess noise.

Aitex is a union of private non-profit organization formed in 1985. It comprises of textile and other associated businesses, which intend to enhance the competitiveness of textile firms, encourage modernization, implementation of latest technologies and upgradation of the overall quality of textile firms.
