Our focus is on advancing carbon fibre manufacture and characterisation, post-harvest cotton research and smart fibre materials.
Designing smart clothing and textiles
Our smart and flexible materials are giving way to innovative products with new, advanced functions - from clothing and structures to healthcare goods and industrial processes.
Smart bandages reveal healing
We came up with a smart bandage that improves wound management by indicating healing problems like infection.
High performance clothing for elite athletes
We engineered a unique fabric that is more comfortable before, during and after exercise, helping elite athletes and sports people to achieve peak performance.
Industry and defence impact case studies
We partnered with local manufacturer Textor Technologies to develop a highly absorbent 3D fabric that's been incorporated into millions of nappies by global company Kimberly-Clark.
We are collaborating with industry and the research sector to develop carbon fibre and make it cost-effective for Australian companies.
We're working to enhance Australia's cotton fibre quality to ensure the sustainability of our cotton industry.
