of Materials, Fibres and Textile Testing as one of structural unit of
the Faculty of Textile Technology represent scientific and teaching
entity, which act according to the world’s contemporary trends
in the area of textile materials.
conformity with that, employees of Department are established new
teaching courses and curriculums for students at all modulus –
undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate (PhD study).
activity of Department prior is
connected with materials and fibres as a fundamental component of all
textiles – from conventional use and protective clothing,
high performance technical textiles for industry, civil engineering,
high quality sport and ecology to medical and self protective smart
textiles for military, police, fire-fighting, etc.
research activities are – investigations of interaction between
chemical and molecular structure of textiles and their final
properties, application of new testing methods for the evaluation of
different conventional and technical textile’s properties. As
well, rest research activities are developing of new testing
methodology for objective measurement and evaluation of
high-performance fabric’s properties that are difficult to
measure. At the end, important part of research activities is textile
quality control with assurance and environmental protection. Such
scientific and research activities are proceed through scientific,
bilateral and technological projects whose results are published in
relevant scientific journals and presented at Croatian and
international congresses, while knowledge obtained in this way is
directly transfered in raising education of our students.
intensive professional and publication activities of Department
employees are in many fields such as standardization (State Office
for Standardization and Metrology), visual marking of Croatian
products (Croatian Chamber of Economy), textile restoration (Croatian
Restoration Institute), encyclopaedias publication (HLZ M.Krleža),
the Department of materials, fibres and textile testing many
measurements are carrying out using standardized and non-standardized
methods and approach, in order to obtain and assure the quality of
textile goods, as well as to develop a new product and compile
expertise for the industry and textile trade organisations.
