Abstract:
Nanotech Expert Will Discuss Nanoparticle Integration Strategies for Polymers.

NanoHorizons President, Dr. Dan Hayes, to Present at INDA-TAPPI’s International Nonwovens Technical Conference 2008

State College, PA | Posted on August 21st, 2008

Dr. Dan Hayes, president of NanoHorizons Inc., a leader in the creation of nanoscale antimicrobial performance additives, will address participants at the joint INDA-TAPPI International Nonwovens Technical Conference (INTC) at the Hilton Americas in Houston on Tuesday afternoon, September 9. His presentation is entitled "Nanoparticle Integration Strategies for Synthetic and Non-Synthetic Textiles".

"Nanotechnology applications for technical textiles—especially nonwovens—have increased dramatically in recent years," says Dr. Hayes. "But successful integration into the fiber and textile manufacturing process is critically important for both product performance and cost effectiveness."

Dr. Hayes will present findings from a study comparing two methods for integrating silver nanoparticle additives into synthetic and non-synthetic polymer systems. Results from studies of three polymer systems will be examined: nylon 6,6/6, polypropylene, and cellulose. Dr. Hayes will compare and contrast test results quantifying antimicrobial performance and permanence in fabrics made of each polymer type. Additionally, Dr. Hayes will explain the manufacturing and environmental benefits that nanotechnology affords.
