Would you put your smart phone in the laundry? With dry finishing done the right way, that can be done, though we do not recommend doing that! But, what about biosensors built into apparel for sports training, bio-feedback, or medical diagnostics? Or, just LED lighting for safety and visibility purposes?
We may be speaking of the future, but that's what innovation is all about. With dry finishing, smart textiles just move a bit closer to reality. We want smart textiles to be able to withstand normal laundry cleaning. We want to our extreme durability to merge with our water-free finishing capability. It is the future.
