Biodegradable material for wound dressing and hygienic purposes.

In view of the need to reduce environmental contamination, the implementation and use of biodegradable materials is now
a common trend in material technologies.

At the Institute of Material Science of Textiles and Polymer Composites, a new formation technique has been designed and developed to produce card, needled and spunbond non-woven fabrics, as well as foams and foils. Spunbond non-woven fabrics are modified to obtain strong hydrophobic features using a low-temperature plasma technique, making a skin contact layer for hygienic products.

Moreover, the non-woven materials are coated with alginate acid which provides the materials with alleviating properties and optimal pH for the human skin. Spunbond non-woven fabrics also provide an anti-bacterial finish for hospital products – hospital linen and sheets. The needled non-woven fabrics are given a hydrophile finish to obtain absorbent layers and with an anti-bacterial finish applied on the separating layer in hygienic products. This technology is suitable for applications in the production of wound dressing and hygienic materials.


Biodegradable half masks for protection of the airways and filters for industrial dust extraction.

Contamination of the air with dust is a frequent cause of respiratory conditions.

This technology, designed and developed by the Institute of Material Science of Textiles and Polymer Composites, together with partners from the Institute of Biopolymers and Chemical Fibres and the Central Institute for Labour Protection, enables the production of biodegradable filtration half masks for protection of the airways and of filters for industrial dust extraction.

The products are made of biodegradablenon-woven materials with PLA of filtration efficacy at 99% in temperatures up to 40°C, in neutral or not highly aggressive chemical environments. This technology is protected a patent application. It is suitable for applications in the production of protective clothes and filtration materials.


Digital printing technology for producing to produce sensory and electroconductive textiles.

One of the trends in the textile industry is the development of technologies associated with the production of textiles with electronic, textronic and electroconductive elements.

This technology, designed and developed at the Institute of Architecture of Textiles and innovative on a global scale, enables the use of digital printing techniques for industrial production of new generation textiles. This technology is intended for manufacturers of software products.


Textile charger for mobile electronic devices.

This technology provides users with constant access to electricity to maintain the operation of mobile devices, which in turn will reduce the frequency of charging a smartphones or tablets.

Research conducted by scientists at the Institute of Architecture of Textiles proved the existence of an analogy between the construction and electroconductive properties of a hybrid bunch thread and an electrical system made of solenoid with a ferromagnetic core connected in series. This made it possible to introduce a system of solenoids into fabric and knitwear as a weft and/ or warp, and to convert field energy into electromotive force induced in the copper thread as well as to alternate magnetization of the steel thread. This technology will be of interest to companies producing textronic systems and dealing with ecological solutions.
