The direction of FTC's research and development is to accept new and updated
concepts to face the challenges of the 21st century. The main points as
Creation of comfort and impressibility
The physical qualities FTC is researching include: high moisture permeability
and waterproof, perspiration absorbancy and easy drying, warmness property,
anti-bacteria and malodor resistancy, and deodorant properties.
The subjective qualities the company is looking for include: the creation of
materials with a high-tech feeling imbued with natural qualities.
The sports and exercise functions being sought are: stretchability, light
weight and softness and comfort with special functions for the human physique.
Health and hygiene for life
The creation of a healthy and hygienic environment is everybody's expectation
and its related texiles functions are: bacterial resistance, dust mites
resistance, stain release, anti acid rain and medical textiles.
Safety and protection
This includes:flame retardancy, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance,high
tenacity protective fabric, UV.cut, clean room wear or other uses for fabrics
that conducts elecyticity, and air-bags for cars.
Development and application of compositive fiber and function
This is to combine high polymer chemistry technology and textile technology to
promote the development of special functions and Shin Gosen such as : fabric
made of yarns with different shrinkability, elastic fabric, new linen-like
fabric and new wool-like fabric.Another important R & D direction is high
functions combined shch as waterproof and water repellency with fire-proof,
waterproof and water repellency with bacteria resistance, and waterproof
moisture peumeable with anti Near lnfra Red (NIR) finish.
Development of high technology textiles
High technology is the major force in the upgrading of the traditional textile
industry such as:high performance ballistic-proof textiles, panels for
anti-bullet armor and helments, anti NIR, medical textiles, and high functional
and multi-functional coating technology.
Increase the development of life related products
These include: high tenacity tyre cord, light weight umbrella U-Shaped steel
wires, biodegradable PE. bags.
Conform the procedures and products with environmental protection policy
We apply environmental protection procedures to produce materials and,
meanwhile, improve the process used in production.
Creation of fashion trends
The market is guided by the need to cultivate the complete feel in all
dimensions including attractive color, culture related art, and fashionable
material with its properties and functions.
