Multiplex Laser Surface Enhancement (MLSE) processing has the potential to revolutionise the textile processing industry. MLSE produces technically superior products and significantly reduces the environmental impact of materials processing in a sector which traditionally uses high levels of water, energy and chemicals. MLSE is a dry process, carried out at atmospheric pressures using safe, inert gases (Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon & Carbon Dioxide). The combination of plasma and photonic energy creates material synthesis in the surface of a substrate. The MLSE process has been developed through working with major textile manufacturers across Yorkshire, working with real-time processes for material cleaning and performance enhancements including low temperature dyeing, water-proofing, fire retardant and anti-microbial treatments. The 'recipe' of laser/plasma intensities and gases determines the nature of performance enhancement required.
