Functional textile and apparel: aesthetics, comfort and safety

Description

Although many studies have validated the antibacterial property of nanosilver treated fabrics (e.g. Paladini, De Simone, Sannino, & Pollini, 2014), few has been done on the assessment of UV protection property and/or thermal comfort. No study has been found assessing thermal comfort of nanosilver treated fabrics with human, clothing, and environment all taken into consideration. Hence, the purpose of this study was to introduce a dynamic numerical thermal model to assess the thermal comfort of nanosilver treated knit fabrics for sportswear. The antibacterial property and UV protection of the nanosilver treated knit fabrics were also evaluated.

Assessing antibacterial property, UV protection, and thermal comfort of nanosilver treated cotton and polyester knit fabrics for sportswear
