Use of technical textiles in medical and healthcare is an area of interest for Aditya Birla Group's (ABG) Thai Acrylic Fibre (TAF), especially for its anti-microbial products. To cater to customers worldwide, the company is working on setting up a global value chain through collaborations with regional players, according to ABG’s textiles business head Thomas Varghese.

TAF is looking to increase its focus on protective gear and industrial applications, Varghese said in an interview with Fibre2Fashion.

“Another trend borne out of the pandemic last year is the (increase in) demand for products in hygiene as well as non-hygiene applications, with better anti-microbial properties. Our anti-viral and anti-microbial Amicor fibre is increasingly finding use in medical textiles (such as PPE and masks), home textiles (bedsheets, curtains) as well as popular consumer segments such as jeans,” he added.
