Presentation Summary

The ability to add qualities to cotton fibers (self-sterilizing, fireproof, electrical conduction, wound healing, and more) opens a world of applications that have hitherto been unavailable in cotton. Argaman's patented system employs a new "green" ultrasonic technology which brings textile production into the 21st century.
