This report provides information on the latest developments in antibacterial agents for technical textiles, anti-surveillance apparel, carbon nanotube fibres, fabrics for technical textiles, fibres for technical textiles, finishing treatments, smart textiles and wearable technology, and technical textiles for medical applications. The report includes news from the following innovative companies and organisations: Adam Harvey, ADS, Biomedical Structures (BMS), Eindhoven University of Technology, Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), HyperStealth Biotechnology, Israel Institute of Technology, Kelheim Fibres, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, MMT Textiles, North Carolina State University (NCSU), Pennsylvania State University (Penn State University), Rice University, Teijin Aramid, TissueGen, University of Michigan, the US Air Force and Yonsei University.
SUMMARY

ANTIBACTERIAL AGENTS FOR TECHNICAL TEXTILES

Researchers at KTH Royal Institute of Technology have developed a new antibacterial polymer

ANTI-SURVEILLANCE APPAREL

An American artist has created a collection of garments which can reduce the effectiveness of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVS)

CARBON NANOTUBE FIBRES

A team of scientists has developed a carbon nanotube fibre which looks and acts like a textile yarn but can conduct electricity

FABRICS FOR TECHNICAL TEXTILES

HyperStealth Biotechnology has developed a new fabric which can make a person or an object invisible

FIBRES FOR TECHNICAL TEXTILES

Kelheim Fibres has developed a viscose fibre which has inherent water repellent properties
Kraig Biocraft Laboratories has developed a new type of spider silk called Big Red
MMT Textiles has developed a new bicomponent moisture management fibre called Inotek
Researchers at North Carolina State University (NCSU) have created a conductive wire which can stretch up to eight times its original length
Researchers at Pennsylvania State University have developed a silicon-based optical fibre which has solar cell capabilities

FINISHING TREATMENTS

A team of engineering researchers at the University of Michigan has developed a nanoscale fabric coating which can repel a wide range of liquids
Researchers have developed a special treatment for cotton fabric which allows the cotton to absorb exceptional amounts of water from misty air

SMART TEXTILES AND WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY

Scientists at Yonsei University have developed a new material which can generate electricity using heat from a person’s body

TECHNICAL TEXTILES FOR MEDICAL APPLICATIONS

TissueGen has developed a new extrusion process which can be used to manufacture medical textiles with superior drug delivery properties
