SUMMARY

ANTIMICROBIAL FINISHES
The Hohenstein Group is exploring the use of Lewis acids as antimicrobial agents in textile finishes

AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS
Porsche has developed a wheel which is made from carbon fibre

COATINGS
Dainichi Giken, Daimaru Kogyo and Teijin Limited have collaborated in the development of a transparent aqueous flame retardant coating

COMPOSITES
Hexcel has developed a new prepreg and a new carbon fibre
Hexion has developed a new epoxy resin system which has low fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) properties

DIGITAL PRINTING INKS
Huntsman Textile Effects has developed a new range of digital printing inks which are stable to light and high temperatures

FILTRATION MEDIA
Teijin Frontier has developed a new filter bag which incorporates Nanofront fibre

LAMINATES
North Thin Ply Technology and 4a manufacturing have collaborated in the development of a new laminate material containing carbon fibre prepreg tape called Cimera micro sandwich

NONWOVENS
Ahlstrom-Munksjö has developed a breathable and impervious nonwoven fabric called PureArmor

PHOTONIC TEXTILES
Researchers at Empa have developed photonic textiles which can be used to treat newborn babies who suffer from jaundice

SPIDER SILK
Researchers at the University of Trento and the Cambridge Graphene Centre have developed a method of modifying spider silk threads in order to improve their mechanical properties

WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY
Researchers at the University of Manchester have developed flexible supercapacitors which can be printed on to textile substrates

WIPES
Kelheim Fibres has developed a new concept for wet wipes which are biodegradable and flushable
