    This research analyzes the effects of different treatments on flax nonwoven (NW) fabrics which are intended for composite reinforcement. The treatments applied were of two different kinds: a wet/dry cycling which helps to ...
  • Determinación rápida de la degradación de lanas y pelos 

    Marsal Amenós, Félix (2015-11-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Se propone un nuevo método, validado en la práctica industrial, para determinar las posibles degradaciones microbianas y bacterianas de las lanas y de los pelos textiles. Se ha aplicado a lanas de finuras variables de 18 ...

    Hernia repair is one of the most common operations in general surgery, and its associated complications typically relate to infections, among others. The loading of antibiotics to surgical meshes to deliver them locally ...
  • New approach to assessing fabric drape based on the fractal dimension 

    Carrera Gallissà, Enric; Capdevila Juan, Francisco Javier; Valldeperas Morell, José; Abril, Héctor C (2015-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The usefulness of the fractal dimension of drape (D) to explain the shape of fabrics acquired when allowed to fall freely under the effect of gravity was assessed by using the box-counting method to calculate it for ...

    Cosmetic and medical applications of technical textiles are a research expanding field. One of the added values of these new materials would be that they are suitable to contain and release active ingredients in a controlled ...
  • Application of microcapsules in spinning 

    Marsal Amenós, Félix (2014-10-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    A new method has been developed for applying microcapsules in the spinning process, in all yarns made on ring spinning machines, whether short fiber or long fiber. The microcapsules were placed in the interstices of the ...
