Germany : Smart Textiles, where future is promising!

Abstract:
Avantex 2005 once more turns the spotlight on the current potential of the European textile industry. It features products from around 40 exhibitors that not only underline the increasing importance of ‘smart’ and ‘intelligent’ textiles, but also emphasise how competitiveness can only be guaranteed through the interdisciplinary partnership between science and industry.

Application area: military clothing, protective clothing. Even t-shirts and underwear are capable of providing electro-magnetic protection thanks to nano-technology. W. Zimmermann GmbH & Co. KG (Germany) presents a ‘textile construction’ that has high shielding properties.
