Water Hyacinth: A Promising textile fibre source
Water hyacinth is a free-floating perennial plant that can grow to a height of 3 feet. It has striking light blue to violet flowers located on a terminal spike. Water hyacinth is a very aggressive invader and can form thick mats. If these mats cover the entire surface of the pond they can cause oxygen depletions and fish kills. Water hyacinths have to be controlled so they do not cover the

Super Absorbent Nonwovens for Protective Apparels
Introduction With the rapid technological development and progress, human beings have accepted the challenge of working in the increasingly hostile and adverse environment. Despite the growth of technology, work places still exist where we have to work in hot or/and humid conditions. Examples of such work areas include aerospace, firefighting, chemical warfare conditions, working in foundry

New Purview of Alacrity: Shape Memory Polymers (SMPS)
Shape memory polymers come under the category of very smart materials. Very smart materials are those materials that can respond to change in environmental condition and manipulate themselves as per the surroundings. Shape Memory Polymers (SMPs) are stimuli-responsive polymers. They can change their shape to a fixed shape under specific set of conditions like temperature and stress and they have

Glass Fibre
Glass fibre is a special type of synthetic fibre. It is also known as fibre glass that is a material consisting of numerous extremely fine fibres of glass. It is very strong fibre. The versatility of glass as a fibre makes it unique industrial textile material. Glass fibre in fabric form offers an excellent combination of properties from high

Shape Memory Polyurethane for Smart Garment
Shape memory is the ability of a material to remember its original shape, the material deformed into a temporary shape and returns to its original shape by external stimuli. The first materials known to have these properties were shape memory metal alloys (SMAs) which have been developed in 1960s.

Shape Memory Polymers (SMPs) are one type of shape memory materials defined as polymeric

Optical brightening agents and their application on textiles
Textile fibres, paper & plastics in raw state possess aesthetically undesirable brownish cast. Reason of it in natural fibres is presence of natural dyes & pigments & in manmade fibers it is attributable to thermal

A Comparative Study of Low Stress Mechanical Properties on Wool/Wool Blend Fabrics
The application of Fabric Objective Measurement (FOM) to fabric hand in terms of primary hand values and total hand value [1, 2] has several limitations. Firstly, the result of hand value can be by judgment (native or expert). Secondly, the interpretation of hand value (smoothness, stiffness or softness) is different from one country to another and therefore, the results obtained cannot be

New Fibres: Both for Commodity and High End Application
Man has been thinking of producing fibres, first in the laboratory, and then in the factory, since a few centuries ago and more so since the dawn of 20th century, when sincere attempts were made for the production of man-made fibres.

The first commercially successful man-made fibre, i.e., Viscose rayon, came into existence around
