    A growing customer demand currently exists for denim apparel with a used, worn, faded appearance or even holes in the fabric. In this work, we examined the effect of treating denim with an aqueous solution of an oxidant ...
  • Prevent redeposition of solid impurities during washing synthetic fabrics 

    Carrión Fité, Francisco Javier (2016-08-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    The textile washing process involves basically three stages: (1) removing the soiling from the substrate, (2) suspending the soling removed in the washing bath and (3) preventing redeposition of the soiling onto the substrate ...
  • Crosstalk characterization of fabrics elaborated with conductive yarns 

    Fernández García, Raúl; Gil Galí, Ignacio; Cano Casas, Francesc; Parés Sabatés, Ferran (2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The electrical characterization of crosstalk of fabrics elaborated with conductive yarns is investigated. The impact of the source, victim and ground traces location is reported. The experimental results show that the ...

    Article
    Open Access
    Bacterial polyesters such as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are of great interest for a large number of applications both because of their properties and because they come from renewable resources, despite having a higher ...
  • Effect of different dispersing agents in the non-isothermal kinetics and thermomechanical behavior of PET/TiO2 composites 

    Cayuela Marín, Diana; Cot Valle, María Ana; Algaba Joaquín, Inés María; Manich Bou, Albert M. (2016-04-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work is based on the analysis of the influence of dispersing agents on the non-isothermal kinetics, thermomechanical behavior and dispersing action of PET/TiO2 nanocomposites. The influence of two montanic waxes and ...
