Wednesday, November 7th 2018, marked the kickoff of the inaugural Innovate Textile & Apparel conference presented by the World Textile Innovation Network (WTIN). Phil Mansour (CEO, MTIX International) and Jahr Turchan (Vice President of Business Development, MTIX Ltd.) gave the closing presentation for the opening day. Here is the abstract for the presentation.
MLSE® (multiplex laser surface enhancement) is a patented novel textile technology for finishing applications, such as the functionalization of fabric, which supports Industry 4.0 aims and this technology has worldwide trademark registration. Examples include: water, oil, and fuel repellency; fire retardancy; anti-microbial and CBW (Chemical Biowarfare) protection; enhanced surface preparation for dyeing and printing (traditional and digital). MTIX is a material science, process synthesis and systems engineering innovation company. MTIX already has a number of commercial successes in both the technical textile area as well as in apparel manufacturing. The technology will dramatically impact every textile sub-sector as it is available on a technology-as-a-service basis and can provide functionality to fabrics in an efficient and controlled manner.
