A smart t-shirt

Graphene (A carbon modification: one atom thick) has found its application in light industry. The structure of graphene, ‘installed’ into the fabric fibres, helped to create T-shirts and shirts that do not get dirty and do not wear out for up to 200 years. Graphene textiles can be given different, sometimes even opposite properties: for example, it can be waterproof and used as the fabric for diving equipment, or vice versa, be moisture wicking, which is essential for sportswear destined for high quantities of moisture. ‘Smart’ textile does not lose its form and has the properties of shape and temperature memory, releasing additional layers of insulation as the temperature decreases, and compressing them, when it gets hot.
