According to INIC website, the fabrics are currently used in the production of anti-wave pregnancy corsets, anti-wave children clothes, and uniforms used in radiology or MRI centers. These fabrics also have applications in electronics, communication, and decorative textile industries.
Nano Mad Pars Co. was established in 2009 and it started its activities by producing anti-stain and waterproof agents for all fabrics. The company succeeded to obtain fabric coating technology through physical and chemical methods for various applications during its activities in the field of smart fabrics.
Nano Mad Pars Co. produced anti-wave fabrics for the first time in 2015 at semi-industrial scale. In 2016 and with the support of INIC, this company participated in NanoMatch Event as a technologist company, and it succeeded in the production of its nano-fabrics at industrial scale in forms of anti-wave pregnancy corsets through signing a contract with the medical equipment company of Tanco.
Dr. Laleh Maleknia, member of the Scientific Board of Tehran-South Branch of Islamic Azad University and the CEO of Nano Mad Pars Knowledge-based Company, explains the necessity of the production of these types of fabrics. “The application of electronic devices such as cell phones, wireless telephones, laptops, and the internet is inevitable these days, and it increases every day. These devices work at mega and gigahertz wavelengths, which are known as invisible killers. The waves can cause problems such as headache, impatience, lethargy, and physical or mental disorders. The application of anti-wave fabrics in the production of clothes can protect people, especially pregnant women and infants from the dangerous waves.”
Natural nanofibers such as wool, cotton, and silk and synthetic fibers such as polyester, nylon, and polypropylene have been used in the production of these nano-fabrics. Nanoparticles such as metal or carbon nanoparticles have given anti-wave properties to the fabrics.
The nanoparticles have been deposited on the surface of fibers through physical and chemical deposition methods. Therefore, the final product can absorb or reflect a wide range of waves according to the type of nanoparticle and the coating.
According to this industrialist, the fabrics will be produced at a scale of 120,000 square meters in the present year, and according to the market demand, it is predicted that the production increases three times. It is also predicted that this product will have an annual exportation value of about $2,380,000 only for the anti-wave corset.
It must be pointed out that the product obtained NanoScale Certification from INIC in 2015. This product is protected by an international patent entitled “Production of Conductive and Anti-wave Fabrics with Multifunctional Properties by Using Nanotechnology” and by an Iranian patent entitled “Anti-wave Pregnancy Corsets, Belly Belts, and Clothes”.
