Digital inkjet in functional and smart textile production: turning wet textile processes into dry and energy-efficient processesV.A. Nierstrasz, J. Yu, and S. SeipelDepartment of Textile Technology, Faculty of Textiles, Engineering and Business, University of Borås, 501 90 BoråsConventional textile dyeing and finishing processes typically utilize large quantities of water, energy and chemicals. Despite many efforts to improve resource efficiency textile industry still needs to find radical solutions to substantially reduce its ecological footprint. The objective of the research is to enable textile industry to introduce more effective processes avoiding unnecessary use of water, energy, chemicals and minimization of waste.Digital inkjet technology is a technology with large potential in resource effective production of high end products such as functional and smart textiles in addition to colour printing on textiles. Moreover, digital inkjet technology stimulates innovation through the possibility of small batches, enables novel production strategies (digitalisation of the value chain) and it effectively bridges design and technology. The technology offers strong potential in made-to-measure smart textiles with e.g. applications in health-care and sports.Our research projects in digital inkjet technology focus on the development of stable functional inks, in order to produce textiles with e.g. superhydrophobic, antistatic, conductive, UV sensing or antimicrobial properties as well as inks for color printing.

Inkjetdruck zur Produktion von Funktionstextilien und Smart Textiles: Von nassen textilen Herstellungsverfahren zu trockenen und energieeffizienten Prozessen

Traditionelles Färben und Ausrüsten von Textilien benötigt große Mengen an Wasser, Energie und Chemikalien. Trotz Bemühungen der Textilindustrie Ressourcen effizienter einzusetzen, bedarf es nach wie vor radikaler Lösungen zur Verbesserung des ökologischen Fußabdrucks. Ziel der Forschung ist es, effektivere Prozesse in der Textilindustrie einzuführen, um weder unnötig Wasser, noch Energie und Chemikalien zu verbrauchen, sowie Abfall zu minimieren.

 

Die digitale Inkjet-Technologie verfügt über großes Potential, High-End-Produkte wie Funktionstextilien oder Smart Textiles, über den Farbdruck von Textilien hinaus, ressourcen-effizient zu produzieren. Durch die Möglichkeit kurze Metragen zu produzieren, werden durch den Digitaldruck Innovationen gefördert, neue Produktionsstrategien (Digitalisierung der Wertschöpfungskette) ermöglicht sowie die Design- und Technologiephase miteinander verbunden. Die Technologie verfügt zudem über besonders großes Potential im Bereich maßangefertigter Smart Textiles beispielsweise für Anwendungen im Sportsektor oder Gesundheitswesen.

 

Unsere Forschungsprojekte im digitalen Inkjetdruck konzentrieren sich auf die Entwicklung stabiler, funktionaler Tinten zur Produktion von Textilien mit z.B. superhydrophoben, antistatischen, leitfähigen, UV-sensitiven oder antimikrobiellen Eigenschaften sowie Tinten für den Farbdruck.
