NANOTECHNOLOGY SURFACE MODIFICATION TECHNIQUES

Natural fibres

Natural fibres are any hair-like raw material directly obtainable through an animal, vegetable, or mineral source that can be convertible, after spinning, into yarns and then into woven cloth.

Plasma technology

Plasma technology is a surface treatment process of textiles, adding extra value to functional textiles such as oil and water repellent, better fibre resistance that gives protection against aggressive chemicals.

Surface design

Surface design is a significant factor in fashion design now, and even more in the future due to environmental issues, consumer demands and new technology such as nanotechnology makes it possible to manipulate fabric properties at the textile surface

Felt

Felt (fabric) is the name of a unique textile fabric made of a random fibrous material classified according to a type of manufacture.

Textile substrate

The textile substrate is a term used to describe a substance which upon an enzyme reacts (surface treatments). In other words, compounds that undergo reactions with enzymes. Included are different colourants dyes, natural sizing and thickener materials, such as starches and cellulose derivatives, etc.

Catalyst

Catalyst is a substance that increases the rate of a chemical reaction but which is left unchanged by the result.
