Innovative clothing guarantee user’s safety in outdoor activities
TexBoost - New Materials (PPS2 - AN1)
Under the TexBoost – less Commodities more Specialities Project scope was developed new luminescent textile materials – reflectors fibers and threads – that when incorporated in sports clothing will help users be more visible during low light day periods, and thus, guarantee their safety in activities such as cycling, running, jogging, among others.
The development of light-responsive polyamide and polyester based textile yarns and fibers (by the photoluminescence process) was CeNTI’s main challenge.
This solution, highly different from products that are already on the market, emerges from the current sportspeople’s needs who, daily, end up practicing their activity in obscured environments, with little visibility conditions and exposed to the vehicle traffic’s risks.
These new products are part of TexBoost – less Commodities more Specialities Project, in which CeNTI participated with its innovation and know-how.
