Taiwan Textile Makers Take Aim At Functional Textile Market

Abstract:
The IDB defines "multifunctional textile products" as those with at least three of the following nine functions: maintenance of warmth, resistance to bacteria and odors, resistance to ultraviolet rays, fireproofing and flame-resistance, perspiration absorption and quick-drying, resistance to radiation, resistance to insects, the employment of nanotechnology, and having more than 300cc of negative ions before washing.

UCL has invited domestic textile manufacturers to join in its development of functional textile products, for which it has set up four separate teams to handle development in four areas: health-care nano-functional products, light-sensitive color-changing fabrics, durable fabrics for sanitary products, and fabrics mixed with specially processed natural herbs.
