Nanotubes and polymers future of textiles

Abstract:
Carbon nanotubes is one of the most durable fibers that have the characteristics of strength and strain. CSIRO is currently developing ultra-long nanotubes, which can be processed directly into yarns or non-wovens to produce electrical and thermal connectivity.

Nanotube composite fibers can greatly reduce tearing in the fabric. However, due to the limited production capacity of five grams per day and inability to control the dispersion of the polymers exactly; greater development needs to be further strengthened in this area.
