Mexican scientists study the production of clothing with latex

although the size of the sample used in Mexico's most important public technology is small, researchers at the National Institute of Technology (IPN) are currently developing synthetic raw materials from rubber, which can be used to produce "smart" clothing. 1. Generally, select different parts to test at least three hardness values

Adrian Fuentes, head of the research department of IPN Institute of textile engineering, said that synthetic materials will have stronger, lighter, more durable and elastic characteristics

at present, the research is in the first stage of the "smart" design project, focusing on synthesis, chemical modification and polymer performance characteristics, and producing waterproof cotton fabrics with latex

after the new technology is applied to natural fibers, it will produce fabrics that can be applied to a variety of industries, which is very useful for the production of "smart" clothing in the second stage

experts said that because Mexico has rich natural rubber production, Mexico has great potential to manufacture new materials on a large scale

Mr. Adrian explained that rubber exists in the form of polymer and can be molded into any form, from amorphous (soft) to crystalline (hard) form. In addition to being elastic, natural rubber can also be waterproof when vulcanized and acid-base resistant, and has insulating properties against temperature and electricity. All these features together make rubber widely used in clothing development

experts suggest that Mexico should establish a market-oriented assessment mechanism, use its natural rubber production to compete increasingly around the commanding heights of science and technology and industrial development, increase the use of new materials, and become a leader in products with high added value

the researchers also said that nylon 6 can be combined with a variety of chemical processes to develop a fire-resistant wire, which can be used to produce clothes worn by firefighters, and can also be used with other products
