We are grateful for the recognition for the advancements made in the Functional Textiles industry. Nanotechnology is designed to create functionalities not natively found in host materials. TechConnect explains that “Claros can grow nanomaterials on and within the bulk of a material including natural and synthetic fibers, plastic films, and resins in order to provide durable functional properties that last the lifetime of the product. Current properties shown include viral and bacterial protection, and UV protection….”
