Impact of the Utilization of Nano Silver particles in Textile Materials


The natural fibre products are found to be much more environment friendly. They would also offer economical benefits to a number of developing countries, where vegetable fibres are grown and cultivated in large quantity. The use of nanotechnology in textiles aims to improve the material’s functionalities or give it new characteristics (“Smart Clothes”). Nano particles can be released by mechanical load, abrasion and other external influences. This study mainly focuses on the application of Nano Silver to Tencel and its blended textile yarns, converting them to materials, dyeing with selected Natural Dyes and subjecting to Bio enzyme wash. The impact of this study would create a demand for comfortable, clean and hygienic textile goods which would cal for an urgent need for production of antimicrobial textile goods. With the advent of new technologies such as nano silver and new fibres, the growing needs of consumers in terms of health and hygiene can be fulfilled without compromising issues related to safety, human health and the environment.
