TEKSMER: Future of technical textiles in Turkey

TEKSMER-Technical Textiles Research and Development Centre was founded with the financial support of IZKA (Izmir Development Agency) at the end of 2014 in Izmir/Turkey and works collaboratively with Dokuz Eylul University (DEU) and Aegean Exporters’ Associations (EIB). TEKSMER mainly aims to enable the companies to stay ahead of the competition in the field of technical textiles and its mission is to become a professional research and development center to support the technical textile sectors.

The textile and garment sectors play an important role in both the manufacturing industry and Turkish economy. The textile exports accounts for 5.5% of total exports and, it is stated that the textile sector is the 6th largest sector among the all sectors in Turkey according to the exports amount. Research has shown in Turkey that possible sectoral transition from conventional textile to technical textile will provide enormous contribution margin to the economic development of the country. This transformation is now regarded as a necessity for a more competitive textile industry for the benefit of Turkey’s export amount. Hence, it has been decided to establish a R&D center to work on technical textiles in Izmir. Establishment of a center in the Aegean region has a significant importance in terms of its contribution to employment and export potential.

According to our mission and vision, university-industry collaborations are very important for us. TEKSMER aims to be a bridge between the university and industry to transfer knowledge from each other, to work with companies, to help and encourage them to make transition from conventional textile to technical textile, to provide technical assistance during the transformation, to provide tests & analysis to the industry, to develop new technology for companies, to provide necessary know-how and human resources for the industry, to obtain collaboration with EU programs and EU projects, to organize technical events to train industry.

Our research priorities are initially based on protective textiles, medical textiles and sports textiles. These three titles have been selected after a wide range survey study throughout the textile industry in Turkey. The center provides an extensive range of activities to the textile industry, including testing and analysis, research and development, product development, project management, consultancy, and training.

Teksmer has testing laboratories which were equipped with high technology mechanical and physical testing machines. We can offer tests to the technical textile sector on different types of materials in order to meet the needs of the industry. Such as; resistant to water vapor (ret) and resistant to heat (rct) tests, UV aging test, dimensional stability test, horizontal flammability test for determination of the burning behavior of materials, resistance to radiant heat test for evaluating the burning behavior of a lateral flame which spreads along a specimen, glove cut resistance test, particle count test. And also, we have a high capacity, 50 kN, of universal testing system which is capable of measuring breaking, tearing, tensile, burst, stitch slippage, knot-loop strengths, elongation, friction, puncture, squeezing, peeling tests for fiber, yarn, woven fabric, nonwoven, elastic fabrics, technical textiles according to the related international standards. TEKSMER is aiming to be an independent accredited test laboratory, hence applied to Turkish Accreditation Agency, TURKAK.

In addition to these services, TEKSMER carries out researches in order to improve products, applications and processes. We co-operate with many research centers and textile companies to develop R&D transnational projects. Also, we carry out national research projects with textile companies to inform and advise them about national and international programs, supports, grants and projects in which the companies can take part. TEKSMER offers trainings and workshops in order to increase the technological know-how of technicians and labors.

TEKSMER has a laboratory scale bicomponent melt-spining machine to develop new functional fibers by studying various kinds of polymers. Relating to the research and development studies at TESKMER, we give service on product development and new yarn trials. We believe that we can put very important contribution to the technical textile sectors’ research projects in the case of an on demand by the companies. The main aim of studying bicomponent melt-spining is to do research on new fiber trials and to develop a new type of technical fiber with adding appropriate additives in to the polymer fiber production procedure to obtain functional fibers to be used for making technical textile fabrics.
