Nanotechnology Self Cleaning Effects for Textiles
Through nanotechnology Mincor TX TT, an innovative composite finishing material from BASF, emulates nature by keeping dirt and water at bay.
The lotus plant's extraordinary ability to keep itself clean by means of the ultrafine surface structures on its leaves has led to Buddhism's holy flower becoming rather a celebrity in our latitudes, too. Yet we can also observe this self-cleaning effect on our own indigenous plants such as the nasturtium, reed or lady's mantle: water droplets just roll off the surface of their leaves, taking particles of dirt along with them.
