Nano particles give edge to polyester fabrics

Feb '10
At a recently held national conference on 'Environmental Sustainability of Textile Industry' in Jaipur, Dr DP Chattopadhyay from Department of Textile Chemistry from Faculty of Technology and Engineering of MS University, Vadodara, presented the paper titled, "Nanotechnology in Textiles and Effect on Environment and Human Health" for which he was awarded the best presentation.

Under the guidance of Dr Chattopadhyay, a PhD research student, Mr BH Patel who is also a faculty member is researching on improving functionalities of textiles by introducing a newly synthesized nano-polymeric material, which along with improving the comfort and functional quality of fabrics, will also be environmentally friendly.

The two researchers have developed a nano-material which when blended with polyester fabrics, will help in improving its quality. Polyester fabrics by nature have low moisture regain properties, but when blended with nano-polymeric particles, it helps better the comfort feeling for a wearer of polyester based clothing.

They have also merged silver nano-particles in to other textile fabrics like cotton, wool and silk which enhance the resistance of the fabrics against microbial. The biggest advantage of nano-particle blended fabrics is that, despite frequent washings, the impact on environment is minimal.
