Self-repairing textiles — mending its way into future

Smart textile innovations are opening up a brand new avenue for producers and bringing new purposes to it, moving beyond the conventional. Today, textiles are being used for architecture, in wearable technologies, as environmentally responsible and bio leathers. With the help of nanotechnology many value additions can be made to a normal piece of textile material.

Taking the textile industry a step further to the future of fabrics is a mind blogging invention of different self-healing materials. There are several strategies used in the industry to achieve such results on fabrics such as reversible cross-links, using nanotechnology that releases healing agents, and employing technologies like shape memory effect, nano particle migration, electro hydrodynamics, conductivity, and co-deposition.
