Fabrican: clothing from an aerosol can is about to become a reality (4 photos + video)
Technology developers, allowing to form “fabric” on the body spray, counting on the support of interested companies and government organizations.
The technique is Fabrican Specialty aerosol spray liquid material which contains cotton fibers comprising polymers and a solvent. When applied, the solvent evaporates before contact with the skin that does not “tissue” to bodies stick together. Required density is achieved by spraying the desired number of layers.
It is curious that “fabric” received aerosol method, over time wears like ordinary cotton canvas. And it is washable, so that the resulting garments will last more than one day.
Depending on the components by means of spraying can receive clothes of different colors, different textures with the fibers.
Manel Torres (Manel Torres), founder Fabrican, reasonable notice that the technology will be especially in demand among designers and stylists. Using conventional aerosol cans they can for a few minutes to create unique pieces of upper and lower garments like T-shirts, shorts, capes, etc.
“Cloth” received the spray can be processed quickly: it is enough to get exactly the same solvent system, which was originally contained in an aerosol container.
The proposed technology is useful not only to fashion designers and home-grown. With suitable material composition, it could be used for rapid application of protective covers for upholstered furniture, or, say, a car seat. Moreover, the method can be useful in medicine for applying sterile dressings wounded or injured in automobile accidents.
Mr. Torres recognizes that O technology to the global market requires the support of major companies and organizations. Now, for example, negotiations with the British military on adapting techniques for forming casts solidified immediately after application on the injured limb.
