    The reaction of NH4[Cr(NTA)(H2O)2] (NTA = nitrilotriacetic acid) with H+ has been studied at different temperatures and a rate constant of 1.27(3) x 10(-2) S-1 was obtained at 25.1-degrees-C. It is proposed that the reaction ...
  • Braun, AL (1998-10)
    This paper reports on the progress that has been made with the utilisation and promotion of fine down (cashmere type) fibre production from indigenous goat breeds in South Africa and on the results obtained on samples ...
  • Braun, AL (1999-04)
    Rare, luxury or speciality animal fibres have an exclusively and characteristic, that are rarely associated with other fibres. Their scarcity is due to the fact that they are difficult to produce on a large scale, because ...
  • Braun, AL (2000-07)
    South Africa has over 6 million indigenous goats, many of which have two coats of fibre, namely a fine down (cashmere) that is finer than 18,5 micron and a coarse guard hair. These goats are primarily kept for their meat, ...
  • Braun, AL (2003-01)
    Three hundred combs for combing cashmere hair, constructed by CSIR, were provided to the farmers free of charge. Farmers have earned in total plus minus R11 000 income from harvesting cashmere hair for the 2002 combing ...
  • Braun, AL; Roux, JA (2004)
    A large number of indigenous goats posses two distinct coats, soft, fine undercoat (cashmere) and a coarse overcoat (guard hair the down fibre length and yield need to be improved by following an upgrading programme in ...
  • Anandjiwala, RD; Gonsalves, JW (Sage Publications, 2005)
    In this paper the fabric buckling model proposed by Grosberg and Swani has been modified by incorporating Huang’s bending rule. The proposed model is an extension of the present model and also covers the special cases. The ...
  • Rawal, A; Davies, PJ (Maney Publishing, 2005)
    Net structures were produced by replacing the static die (spinneret) with two concentric dies (consisting of slots) rotating in opposite directions in a melt extrusion process. A series of net structures and filaments were ...
  • Department of Science and Technology (Cashmere Projects, 2005-04)
    During the research period the project was funded by the CSIR and in 2001 the Poverty Alleviation programme of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) became involved in the project. The project was funded by DST ...

  • Hargitai, H; Racz, I (Polymers for Advanced Technologies International Symposium, 2005-09)
    Non-woven mats from hemp and polypropylene fibres in various proportions were produced and hot pressed to make composite material. The effect of hemp fibre content and anisotropy in non-woven mats resulting from the carding ...
  • Barkhuysen, FA; Chapple, Stephen A; Blunt, J; Lemon, H (2005-09)
    The main disadvantage of coarse wool and mohair is their harshness, making them unacceptable to the consumer. The best way to improve the softness of coarse fibres is by a chemical treatment. In this regard, a variety of ...
  • Zwane, PEL; Magagula, N (2005-10)
    The four body types are the: Hourglass/ideal body shape, triangular/pear/bottom heavy shape, and rectangular body shapes. An individual with an hourglass is regarded as having a proportionate figure, whereby the girth ...
  • Zwane, PEL; Magagula, N (2005-11)
    The purpose of this study was to explore the development of new slopers for women with bottom heavy figures, with the view to propose a new sizing category or nomenclature for the sizing charts; to develop basic blocks for ...
  • Rawal, A; Anandjiwala, RD (SAGE Publications, 2006-04)
    Geotextiles are commonly produced by needlepunching technology and generally used for various civil engineering applications. Some of these applications require geotextiles to perform more than one function including ...
  • Zwane, PE; Cloud, RM (AUTEX Research Journal, 2006-06)
    The aim of this study was to explore the spinnability of sisal fibres treated with sodium hydroxide (NaOH), and the potential utility of spun yarns in producing a woven fabric for different end uses. Exploratory and ...
  • Chapple, Stephen A; Ferg, E (American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, 2006-11)
    Cotton has many desirable properties, but is flammable. The flame retardant treatment of cotton is an important textile process. To study the effect of a sol-gel phosphate-based flame-retardant coating on fabric properties ...
  • Anandjiwala, RD (2006-12)
    Natural fibres and their products were prevalent since the early civilization of our society. Since then, the utilization and economic impact of natural fibre cultivation and down stream processing and products have been ...
