Nanotextiles - Offering Durable and Trendy Clothing

When it comes to clothing, we all have particular likings and distinctive taste. Some prefer practical clothes that are comfortable, others are ardent fashion followers and there are people who prefer durable outfits. However, everyone likes clothes that last long and can be personalized according to specific requirements. Nanotextiles has made it possible, yes, this terrific technology uses nanoparticles to produce fabric that has marvelous properties. Who does not like to wear wrinkle free clothes? The fabric produced by this technology does not need ironing. Have a look at the commendable specifications of clothes produced with nanoparticles!

Germ free, comfortable clothes:

There are germ free detergents, soaps and what not available out there. These days it is important to disinfect yourself because of an array of infectious diseases that can transmit from various sources. Socks, Jackets and shirts made from nanoparticles are likely to save you from bacterial and fungal infections. Hence these are first of their kind clothes that cater to the health issues.

Nanotextiles has produced us a fabric that is resistant against pathogens. Clothes made from this fabric not only help combating diseases but also have temperature moderating ability. Hence you are not likely to feel the harshness of weather while wearing these clothes.

Stain free, permanent colored fabric:

The most puzzling task is to remove tea, coffee or ink stains from the clothes and in such a practice the color of the fabric fades away. Say goodbye to these worries, since Nanotextiles brings you clothing that is resistant to stains. You will love the vitality of colors in these clothes. Nanoparticles are known to color, hence these fabrics are not dyed and as a result your clothes will retain their brightness even after years.

Varying properties of fabrics:

The fabrics manufactured by nanotechnology have varying properties because of difference in formulation. For instance there are retailers offering 50 wrinkle free washing clothes while others guarantee lifelong wrinkle free fabric.

Nanoparticles if incorporated in a fabric chemically are likely to get weak after several washings however when they are treated on a molecular level, more quality textile material is produced that does not require ironing at all.

Flexible Organic Clothing:

Another advantage of organic clothing is that it can be experimented with more conveniently. It is probable that some of the topnotch brands will prefer nanofabric for its flexible and novel properties. Fashion designers can give the fabric desirable cuts since the colors of this textile material are permanent. You can have your favorite outfits in the closet for longer time period without worrying about the external environmental factors tampering with their texture.

The magic of sol-gel:

Nanofabrics are given a sol-gel finish because of which they possess exclusive properties. During this process, nanoparticles are absorbed in alcohol or some other liquid solvent. The chemical process takes place after dissolution that results in the growth of nanoparticles distributed evenly in the solvent. Network of these particles make a gel like surface which is dried to extract solvent from it. Sol-gel technique is used to make polymer nanofibers as well that contain stranded chains of proteins.

Budgetary Concerns:

While the nanofabrics are commendable for their awesome features, there are pricey. Any technology that is at a stage of evolution does require loads of money and similar is the case with Nanotechnology. Though it is unrivalled in unique applications, time is required to produce it at economic rates. This may not be termed as a downside of this innovation. The coming years will see the propelling power of nanoparticles in every field ranging from textiles to biotechnology.
