On January 24th, group of researchers participated at the 12th Textile Science & Economy 2019  French-Croatian Forum, which was organized by the University of Zagreb Faculty of Textile Technology and Zagreb Innovation Centre Ltd.
Prof.dr.sc. Zlatko Vrljicak and his assistant Zeljka Pavlovic presented the paper The compressibility of fine women’s hosiery with elastane, with PhD students Lozo Milos and Tea Jovanovic as coauthors.

Prof.dr.sc. Alka Mihelic Bogdanic and Ivana Spelic, Ph.D. participated with paper Energy savings in shoe sole production process.

The Project funded by National Sciendce Foundation, Comfort and antimicrobial properties of textiles and footwear, was also presented.

The papers were published in the Book of Abstracts and in the poster form but will be soon published as a full paper in the conference proceeding of 12th Textile Science & Economy 2019 French-Croatian Forum.

Antibacterial testing of textiles

According to planned activities in WP4, antibacterial treatments of produced knitted fabrics have been conducted. Antibacterial effectiveness of treated materials was determined using qualitative and quantitative methods according to international standards:

  1. EN ISO 20645:2004 Textile fabrics – Determination of antibacterial activity – Agar diffusion plate test
  2. EN ISO 20743:2013 Textiles — Determination of antibacterial activity of textile products
  3. absorption method (an evaluation method in which the test bacterial suspension is inoculated directly onto specimens) and
  4. transfer method (an evaluation method in which test bacteria are placed on an agar plate and transferred onto specimens).
