A nonwovens research program has recently been initiated at the International Textile Center. This was made possible by the support of the Soldier and Biological Chemical Command (SBCCOM) of the US Department of Defense, in the form of a research contract to Dr. Seshadri Ramkumar of the ITC. The main objective of the research program is to develop protective fabrics for use againts hazardous agents. A Fehrer H1 technology needle loom has been purchased, along with a William Tatham feeding line. The nonwovens laboratory at the ITC will be the first facility in the USA to house the state-of-the-art H1 technology needle loom.
