Burlington Notes Progress In Nanotechnology Initiatives

Burlington Industries Inc., Greensboro, N.C., announced that its subsidiary, Nano-Tex LLC, Emeryville, Calif., has made progress in the development of nanotechnology for textiles.Nano-Tex scientists are applying nanotechnology to textiles by developing unique polymer chemistry, said George W. Henderson III, chairman and CEO, Burlington Industries. The goal is to permanently impart highly desireable features to fibers and fabrics, without losing softness, durability or breathability. We are currently testing some of the processes in Burlingtons manufacturing plants and seeking marketing feedback on initial trials. We believe nanotechnology may have broad potential for apparel, interior furnishings, automotive, industrial and medical uses.
