I. Passive Smart Textiles Passive Smart Textiles or Chemical Functional Textiles: Textile which provides additional feature irrespective of the change in the environment. Key applications / Textile APP’s Self cleaning, Release systems, Humidity control systems, Anti bacterial, Colour change system, anti-odour, Radiation protection, Anti-static, etc. Enabling technologiesKom verder. Saxion.
Self Cleaning StrategiesCleaning after it gets dirty (Cure) Additional benefits – Air purifier – Anti odour – Antimicrobial – UV filter Anti Smog: An Innovation Centre in Sustainable Development: Prototype, Paris, France. The exterior is fitted with 250 square meters of solar photovoltaic panels and coated in titanium dioxide (TiO2). The PV system produces on-site electrical energy while the TiO2 coating works with ultraviolet radiation to interact with particulates in the air, break down organics and reduce air born pollutants and contaminants.Kom verder.
