Nanotechnology revolution to sweep Indian textiles

Abstract:
India is set to witness another revolution in the textile industry in the next few years. After the success of Technology Upgradation Fund (TUF), nanotechnology will be another trigger for the industry to look forward to.

Using nanotechnology, fabrics can be altered at the molecular level, creating advance materials that can be 100 times lighter in weight! Nanotechnology fabrics can also be 100 times stronger. Objects made from these materials could be up to 100 times lighter, using one-hundredth amount of material. As a result, ultralight cars, trucks, trains, and planes will use far less energy, especially with atomically smooth surfaces to reduce internal friction and air resistance losses.
