Advanced Functional Fibers and Fabrics

Recent breakthroughs in fiber materials and processing conditions now enable us to develop multi-material fibers endowed with sophisticated functionality. Woven into fabrics, these multi-material fibers expand the application space of traditional textiles into highly functional systems with capabilities such as sensing, light emission, color change and more. This presentation will provide an overview of recent technological breakthroughs in advanced functional fibers and fabrics and will introduce the role of the Advanced Functional Fabrics of America (AFFOA), one of 8 USA Manufacturing Innovation Institutes, in bringing novel advanced fabrics products to the market.
