Active Coatings for Smart Textiles

1 - Introduction to active coatings for smart textiles rights and content


This chapter begins by differentiating the definitions of finishing, coating, and laminating and then points out the unique features of coating in other textile-wetting technologies. Based on the fundamental definitions, the difference between common and active coating is introduced. This chapter also compares the functions and applications of common and active coated textiles and reviews materials and technologies. Finally, the chapter outlines the contents of the book.

    Citation Excerpt :

    Smart materials are also known as intelligent materials and their properties of reacting to the surrounding and sensing stimuli helps to improve the performance of material [1]. These materials have the potential to transform the weight, steadfastness, performance, and fundamental structure [2]. Materials are classified into four major categories which are metals, ceramics, polymers, and smart materials [3].

  • Antibacterial activity, stability, and hemolytic activity of heartwood extract from Caesalpinia sappan for application on nonwoven fabric

    2022, Electronic Journal of Biotechnology
    Citation Excerpt :

    The strong hemolytic effect of plant extract could induce lytic properties or membrane instability, leading to hemolytic anemia. For fabric application, the active coatings for smart textile in the finishing process was also evaluated for the toxicological properties because the human skin is in prolonged contact with the textile fabric during various activities in everyday life when touching or wearing fabric as well as for medical application [38]. In this study, the 1MIC of CSE showed potential for the next study.
