Nanotechnology Benefits in Fabric Formation

Nanometer (Nm) resins have been shown to modify fiber behavior in existing textile yarn. Incorporation of nanometer (Nm) resins in conventional warp size formulations improve weaving performance, improve fabric quality and reduce cost.

Textile Fabric Types by Fiber Sources

Generally, a set number of yarns are used for the formation of fabrics. Also, a number of techniques are used for producing fabrics such as weaving, knitting, and felting. The type of fabrics varies by the fibers, the fabric formation techniques, machinery used for producing them, and finishing techniques. Fabrics also made differently based on the end-usage.

Natural silk – sourcing, usage, and application

Silk is a natural protein fiber. It is similar to wool in that it is composed of amino acids arranged in a polypeptide chain. Silk is produced by the larvae of a moth, while wool is produced by animals. All protein fibres have some general characteristics in common.

Batik designs – How to make Batik designs

Batik is a textile art used to print or decorate the fabric and also called as “wax writing”. It is a technique of covering parts of fabric which will not receive color. The creation of batik involves three major processes – waxing, dying and de-waxing.

Micro-encapsulation/Odor Control and Stain resistant textiles

Microencapsulation is one of the latest technologies used to impart an array of unique characteristics to a garment.Particles filled with active ingredients are applied to the fabric or garments for long-lasting effects.Odor control is a hot topic in the apparel and hosiery arenas. Odor can be controlled by applying an antimicrobial finish, removing the odor molecules as they are formed or covering up the odor with a fragrance.Stain resistant finishes are no longer considered a niche market.
