Russian scientists have created a fabric resistant to fire and water
Scientists of the St. Petersburg State University of Industrial Technologies and Design have developed a method of fabric finishing that makes colored materials resistant to fire, water and other damaging factors. This is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.
The basis of the development are meta-aramid fibers, which are able to withstand temperatures up to 450 ° Celsius, but they are very poorly stained. Russian scientists have not only solved this problem, but also expanded the temperature range of the tissue. Now the fabric can withstand temperatures from - 80º to +540º Celsius.
"Smart fabric" will be used for the production of workwear, non-burning furniture fabrics and coatings, as well as for the interior decoration of vehicles.
