Bamboo seen in the clothing industry as an Eco-chic and functional new fabric. Softer than cotton and with a texture more akin to silk or cashmere, bamboo clothing naturally draws moisture away from the skin, and it dries faster. Read more..
Chitosan is a nontoxic biodegradable product derived from chitin by deacetylation in the presence of alkali. It is the second most considerable polysaccharide, after cellulose and can be regarded as a cellulose derivative. The very interesting habitual property is anti-microbial and film-forming, which makes chitosan promising regarding nano treatment of textiles. Read more..
Crystallization is a term used to describe the method for transforming a solution into a solid, where a supersaturated solution nucleates the solute by a chemical equilibrium controlled process. Read more.
All fibres having a practically unlimited or infinite length are called filaments. Filament fibres are continuous (long) fibre. It may be natural like silk or synthetic like Nylon. Filament fibres are measured in yards or meters. Read more..
Hydrogels can be formed from reprocessed silkworm silk . These gels are formed with aqueous solutions of the fibroin prepared as outlined earlier. The rate of sol–gel transition is directly dependent on temperature (higher the temperature the more rapid the gelation), pH (lower the pH the more rapid the gelation), and solids content (higher the solids higher the rates of gelation).
