NanoTechnology Application in Textiles

S Karpagam Chinnammal, K.V ArunKumar

Abstract


The textile industry is an early adopter of new ideas and technologies. Textiles are not only for the fashion conscious - they have important applications in the aerospace, automotive, construction, healthcare and sportswear industries. Nanotechnology is a growing interdisciplinary technology often seen as a new industrial revolution. Nanotechnology is a field of applied science focused on the design, synthesis, characterisation and application of materials and devices on the nanoscale. It deals with the material 1 to 100 nm in length.Nanotechnology refers to not only the small size of the materials being used, but also how those materials are engineered to perform specific functions.The use of nanotechnology in the textile industry has increased rapidly due to its unique and valuable properties.
