Institution: National Research and Development Institute for Textiles and Leather (INCDTP)
Scientists/Total: 9/23
Keywords:  Textile, analysis
Presentation

Research and development of textile:
- Textile functionalization and surface modification
- Synthesis of chemical compounds for textile functionalization;
- Elaboration of new technologies for micro- and nanostructured materials;
- Development of new methods to characterize textile materials and finishes.

Technical assistance for all the research departments from INCDTP, as well as for external beneficiaries: textile manufacturers, textile import/export companies, consumers, retailers, and other agencies.

Infrastructures

- Chemical: chemical analysis of textile fabrics and finishing compounds;
- Colour Fastness: colour fastness to light, washing, rubbing, perspiration, dry cleaning, etc.;
- Ecological Testing: notified by Ministry of Environment and Forest at national level to conduct tests and verifications of the compounds included in EU label (pentachlorophenol, pesticides, heavy metals, amines, formaldehyde, etc.) for textiles, footwear, mattresses;
- Physical-Mechanical Investigation: analysis of fibres, yarns and fabrics ( tensile/tear/breaking strength, elongation, pilling, abrasion resistance, delamination, wrinkle and crease recovery, air/water permeability, thermal comfort, etc.);
- Flammability: flammability tests (burning behaviour, flammability and flame propagation properties);
- Microbiology: evaluation of textile biodeterioration by fungi.

Applications

Research and development of textile products; analysis and technical assistance for textiles and finishing agents.
