Trial: Multi-function Odour-Control Uniform for Food and Environmental Hygiene Department of HKSAR Government

Funded by the ITF, Advanced Functional Surface Treatment Technology for Textile Materials (Ref. ITP/008/07TP) and High Performance Advanced Materials for Textile and Apparel (Ref. GHS/088/04) have been completed in 2009 and 2007 respectively. The projects developed different functional treatments for garments and apparels, improving the protection, safety, hygiene, comfort, easy-care and appearance of the wearers. The proposed project is to further apply the technologies on the development of uniforms for workers of Food and Environmental Hygiene Department of HKSAR Government, who are working in picking corpses. The important functions for these uniforms are odour-control, anti-bacteria, and water-soil-, blood-repellency. The multi-functions will be based on the new technologies previously developed which including nano- or micro-encapsulation odour-control technology, repellent technology, anti-bacterial technology.
