Bio-degradable Synthetic Fibres
The disposable and degradable synthetic fibres can be applied to the production of disposable health care products such as hairnet, mask and isolation gown. It could also produce other degradable nonwoven materials such as filters which have specific expiry dates and need to be replaced periodically.
Production process of the disposable and degradable fibres is simple and can make use of current manufacturing equipment. As there is no need to apply any plant-based materials into the production, the cost is low while good mechanical and thermal properties are maintained, fostering a diversified development of degradable textile products.
The synergistic effect among two or more transition metals can generate enough energy to overcome the activation energy barrier of synthetic polymers, breaking through the limitation of oxo-biodegradation and extending its application from thin plastic film to synthetic fibres. After over 150 formula tests, it is found that the technique has large potential to be applied to different kinds of synthetic polymers such as polyester.
