Research from molecule to product:

The German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research (DITF) will be providing information on new developments along the entire textile value chain. This year's focus is on smart cycles, pneumatic textiles, fabrics with integrated light guides and textile pressure sensors, ceramic fibers, self-cooling surfaces, lignin coatings for geotextiles and protective gloves, sensor work gloves, bio-based and biodegradable nonwovens and sound insulation.
