Nanotextiles - Offering Durable and Trendy Clothing
When it comes to clothing, all of us have distinctive taste. Some people wear practical clothes that are comfortable, others are ardent fashion followers and there are people who prefer durable clothes. However, everyone likes clothes that last long and can be personalized according to specific requirements. Nanotextiles has made it possible. This terrific technology uses nanoparticles to produce fabric that has great properties. Who wouldn't like to wear wrinkle free clothes? The fabric produced by this technology does not need ironing. Have a look at the commendable specifications of clothes produced with nanoparticles!
Germ free, comfortable clothes:
There are germ free detergents, soaps and what not available out there. These days it is important to use disinfectant yourself due to a big number of infectious diseases that can transmit from various sources. Socks, jackets and shirts made from nanoparticles are likely to save you from bacterial and fungal infections. Hence these are first clothes of their kind that cater to the health issues.
Nanotextiles has produced a fabric that is resistant to pathogens. Clothes made from this fabric not only do help combating diseases but also have temperature moderating ability. Hence you are not likely to feel the harshness of the weather while wearing these clothes.
Stain free, permanent colored fabric:
The most puzzling task is to remove tea, coffee or ink stains from clothes. The usual result is that the color of the fabric fades away. Today nanotextiles bring clothing that is resistant to stains. Colors of clothes are vivid. Nanoparticles are known to color, hence these fabrics are not dyed and as a result your clothes will retain their brightness even after years.
Varying properties of fabrics:
The fabrics manufactured by nanotechnology have varying properties because of difference in formulation. For instance there are retailers offering 50 wrinkle free washing clothes while others guarantee lifelong wrinkle free fabric.
Nanoparticles if incorporated in a fabric chemically are likely to get weak after several washings. They are treated on a molecular level, more quality textile material is produced that does not require ironing at all.
Flexible Organic Clothing:
Another advantage of organic clothing is that it can be experimented with more conveniently. It is probable that some of the top brands will prefer nanofabrics for its flexible and novel properties. Fashion designers can give the fabric desirable cuts since the colors of this textile material are permanent. You can have your favorite clothes in the wardrobe for a long time without worrying about the external environmental factors tampering with their texture.
The magic of "sol-gel":
Nanofabrics are given a sol-gel finish, which gives them exclusive properties. During this process, nanoparticles are absorbed in alcohol or some other liquid solvent. The chemical process takes place after dissolution, which results in the growth of nanoparticles distributed evenly in the solvent. Network of these particles make a gel like surface which is dried to extract solvent from it. Sol-gel technique is used to make polymer nanofibers that contain stranded chains of proteins.
While the nanofabrics are commendable for their awesome features, there are expensive. Any technology that is at a stage of evolution does require a lot of money and similar is the case with Nanotechnology. Although it is unrivalled in unique applications, time is required to produce it at economic rates. This may not be termed as a downside of this innovation. The coming years will see the propelling power of nanoparticles in every field ranging from textiles to biotechnology.
