Would it possible to believe if someone would have told that a liquid can be sprayed on the body which will later dry out to become fashion couture?
Technology has come up with wonders that were even unimaginable before a few years. This is news for all those people who seek cutting edge clothing, and do not like to keep rotating their clothes. A Spanish fashion designer and a Professor of Particle Technology have come up with a Fabrican Spray on Fabric through which clothes can be created by merely spraying it on the skin.
Seems incredible, yet true. Seamless fabrics can be sprayed directly into the body using aerosol technology.This magical spray creates novel clothing that can also be washed and re-worn. An aerosol can or a spray gun is used in spraying the liquid. The spray is made from small fibres blended with polymers that join the fibres together. A solvent is also present in the spray that releases the fabric in liquid, and disappears as soon as the spray touches the surface of the body. Fabric is formed by the cross linking of the fibres, creating a non woven clothing. The web of the cloth is thin, but desired thickness can be brought in the garment by using multiple layers. As the fibres are created in a diffused form, other materials such as pigments or perfumes can also be added to it.
The spray can be used directly over the body using aerosols, or sprays, and gets dehydrated quickly, becoming a new fabric. The texture of the fabric can be altered by adding or changing the blend of the fibres that are used in the spray. Fibres such as linen, acrylic, and wool can be used. The technology is believed to find creative applications in the fashion industry.
This spray has other useful applications as well; such as medical dressings, bandages, hygiene wipes, air fresheners, upholstery fabrics for furniture, etc. It has potential applications in the medical field in way of applying dressings on burnt skin without exerting much pressure or for spraying medicines directly on an injury. The material is sterilized, and hence drugs can be added with it for healing wounds. In the automotive industry, the spray can be used where light, stain resistant, and durable fabrics are required. These fabrics enable creative shapes, various thickness, and biometric forms. The only discomfort of this fabric is that it is very cold when sprayed.
Creating clothing without stitching and weaving is now made possible. This non woven and sprayable futuristic fabric will be seamless, quick and comfortable. Thousands of fibres are created with one single squirt of the can. It will soon penetrate the market, and will be a commercially successful product.
