Textile coloration and finishing

Here, the emphasis is on novel chemistry that helps to improve efficiency of textile coloration and create desired effects of the finished fabrics. In particular, research within this theme concerns the following aspects:

  • Alternative dyeing and finishing processes
  • Dyeing and finishing of environmentally sustainable fibres
  • Dyeing of textiles with natural dyes
  • Fibre surface functionalisation
  • Formulations of inks for the fabrication of smart textiles
  • Formulations of inks for digital printing of textiles
  • Insect-resistant finishing for textiles
  • Stain-resistant finishing for textiles
