Title (EN) ELECTROPROCESSING POLYMERS TO FORM FOOTWEAR AND CLOTHING
(FR) TRAITEMENT ELECTRIQUE DE POLYMERES POUR LE FORMAGE D'ARTICLES CHAUSSANTS ET D'ARTICLES D'HABILLEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Electroprocessed polymers are used to form specifically-shaped shoes, clothing or other related garments. A mandrel having a preselected shape is used as the target in the electroprocessing step. The resulting product has a polymer matrix of exactly the shape of the mandrel. In practice, a person's foot or other body part is used to create the predetermined shape. The polymer may include a material that changes color in response to stretch and compression. That material may include a polyurethane containing polydiacetylene segments. The matrix may further comprise piezoelectric material. In a further alternative embodiment, the invention includes method of making manufactured leather comprising electroprocessing a matrix of collagen. That method may further include the step of treating the collagen matrix with a crosslinking agent.
(FR)Des polymères soumis à des traitement électriques sont utilisés pour former des articles chaussants, des articles d'habillement ou autres articles analogues répondant à des formes spécifiques. Un mandrin d'un profil présélectionné est utilisé comme cible dans l'étape de traitement électrique. Le produit obtenu présente une matrice polymère ayant exactement la forme du mandrin. En pratique, le pied d'une personne ou une autre partie du corps est utilisé pour créer la forme prédéterminée.
