Nanotechnologies & Smart Textiles Conference in Oct, 2006
June 22, 2006 (United Kingdom)
Nanotechnology presents imaginative, exciting and novel properties to textiles for fashion and industry.
Institute of Nanotechnology announces that its event will focus on these new applications of nanotechnology, particularly in today's framework of smartness, sustainability and resource conservation.
These range from scent-embedded textiles, stay-clean textiles and textiles with displays or the ability to change colour, to lightweight fabrics that are so strong they can withstand the impact of a bullet.
Many new textiles are also being developed for health, promoting faster healing and enhancing well-being in the disabled and ageing population.
