Schneider to review futuristic capabilities of performance apparel
NanoHorizons™ today announced that
Schneider, Director of Marketing and Sales, will present “Nanotechnology:
A Key to Futuristic Capabilities in Performance Wear” at Fiber
on October 10th in Charlotte, North Carolina. In its inaugural year, Fiber
Technology 2006 will focus on fibers for innovative applications in
fitness and performance-wear markets.
The conference and exhibition provides a forum in which attendees can
ideas, learn about the latest technological advances, and network with
leading members of the fiber and fabric industry. The focused event will
a qualified group of attendees, including fiber suppliers, fabricators,
Schneider’s presentation, “Nanotechnology: A Key to Futuristic Capabilities in Performance Wear” will address the significant technological advancements that nanotechnology has made possible, and specifically focus on how antimicrobial properties can be added to performance wear. Earlier this year, Schneider’s company, NanoHorizons, launched its line of nanoscale-engineered SmartSilver™ permanent anti-odor/antimicrobial additives, offering a safe and cost-effective method to enhance fibers and fabrics. SmartSilver-modified fibers can be used to create odor- and microbe-resistant fabrics for use in a wide range of consumer and industrial applications, including shoe linings, T-shirts, thermal wear, socks, gloves, carpets, bedding, and uniforms.
NanoHorizons will be exhibiting at Fiber Technology, October 10-11. The event’s co-sponsors, the International Fiber Journal (IFJ) and Industrial Textile Associates focused the event on the medical, fitness, and performance-wear markets, based on these markets’ historic tendency to be early adopters of new ideas and technology that ultimately penetrate other markets.
“The rapidly changing nature of the textile industry has brought with it a focus on the technology that can produce new and improved products,” commented Chuck Heschmeyer, IFJ publisher and event organizer. “Fiber Technology will focus on fibers for innovative applications and provide a venue in which parties interested in the pursuit of new technology and product lines can convene to exchange ideas and discover the latest fiber advances.”
