Technical textile news the textile scrap revives with Fibersort

The Dutch-based Fibersort consortium has introduced the market-ready Fibersort equipment to market that is a cutting-edge automated sorting system that transforms the textile-to-textile recycling of post-consumer textiles. As a result of a long-term duration of research, this technology offers new possibilities in recycling textile waste.

The rapid growth of use and disposal methods that are transforming fashion causes carrington textiles to enter the market to reach final use quickly. For North-West Europe alone, around 4,700 kilograms of post-consumer textile waste are produced each year, which is only a small fraction of the world’s pile of waste textiles. In the average, only 30 percent of these are collected separately, while the remainder are discarded in household waste. In the ideal scenario the carrington textiles are offered for sale on the second-hand market locally as well as internationally. The remainder of the carrington textiles are deemed non-rewearable because of their inability to compete in the second-hand market, or due to the market of oversupply that second-hand clothes are experiencing. The majority of these are being recycled, incinerated or disposed of. Yet 24% of carrington textiles that are collected could be able to be used to create new fabrics, but aren’t. The carrington textiles comprise 486 kilo tons per year, which is which is equivalent to fifty Eiffel towers!

Two experts collaborate in a new project to illuminate garments

Coats is the world’s largest industrial thread producer is working with Osram the global lighting expert to introduce Coats Signal Active Illumination to aid in improving people’s safety as well as visibility.

Coats Signal Active Illumination is an advanced customizable, washable and lightweight LED light system that is designed for use in clothing and accessories. Its visibility range is about three times greater than retro-reflective lighting is capable of attaining.

Coats Signal Active Illumination constructed of flexible light guides that draw energy from the USB battery, which is the size of credit cards. It will keep a charge for up to 8 hours. This, as the typical duration of a working shift, is especially important for those who wear it as part of their work attire. The power bank is easily detached and removed to allow the garment, including it’s LED lights to be used for machines for washing and drying.

Technical textile news: Protection is increased as weight is reduced with Aramid textiles

The protection is increased while the weight decreases by using Aramid textiles. Aramid fibre yarns are extensively used for technical purposes. They are utilized in composites for instance in ballistic systems with hard surfaces and lightweight containers for transport and in high-performance, laminated sails however, they are also utilized in protective textiles, mostly in woven textiles for clothing. As compared to carbon and glass fibers, which are also utilized in a variety of applications, the particular characteristics of the aramid yarns provide them with advantages and can be used in a range of applications, but they come with a cost.

In particular, Aramid fibers possess a remarkable impact resistance and absorption capacity. Contrary to those made of glass or carbon, aramid fibres are unaffected by abrasion of filaments during processing. They are currently processed using the COP MAX 5 multiaxial warp knit machine to produce non-crimp materials with a level of uniformity which has not been attained before. Fine, light reinforcing structures that are channel-free are made for applications that require a higher level of force absorption, particularly in lighter and new fluid ballistics systems.
