National Textile University, or NTU, is the premier institution of Textile Education in Pakistan. It was formerly known as National College of Textile Engineering affiliated with University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore since 1976. The University campus is spread over an area of more than 62 Acres. The University is located in the outskirts of city of Faisalabad about 12 km from the city center on Sheikhupura road. National Textile University is affiliated with National Computing Education Accreditation Council , Pakistan Engineering Council and Higher Education Commission of Pakistan . Pakistan had inherited a very weak industrial base in the aftermath of independence. Textile sector was one of the sectors of Pakistani economy, which were in a comparatively better shape than others. Even then it was not enough to produce the number of jobs that could reduce the rampant unemployment rate in the absence of basic infrastructure facilities and a sound industrial base in the country.Throughout all these years, Pakistan's textile Industry has evolved and developed into a formidable force in steering the nation's economy forward, due to the entrepreneurial spirit of Pakistani industrialists and an established agricultural base in the shape of indigenous Cotton production. Textile sector now accounts for about $12 Billion worth of exports annually, out of Pakistan's total $25 Billion exports. Textile has become a sector which keeps on fetching more and more foreign capital to reinforce fragile Pakistani economy.The role of National Textile University in propelling Pakistan's Textile Industry in the forward direction is mammoth. It holds the privilege of being a pioneering institution in the field of Textiles, over all these years, this institution has catered for the industry's ever increasing demand of Textile engineers and skilled diploma holders. According to some estimates, 90% of Textile engineers in Pakistan's Textile Industry, identify National Textile University as their alma mater.Over all these years, Pakistan has seen a major surge in the number of Textile institutions, which offer diverse degree programs in the field of Textiles. A matter of prodigious delight and honor for National Textile University's students and alumni alike is that, even with such a fierce competition, industrial establishment still prefers Textile engineers holding a degree from National Textile University. This reaffirms their trust in the technical and academic prowess of engineering professional from this distinguished institution. Wikipedia.

Thin and transparent films of doped cadmium sulfide (CdS) were obtained on commercial glass substrates by Chemical Bath Deposition (CBD) technique. The films were doped with low concentration of Sn, and annealed in air at 300 °C for 45 min. The morphological characterization of the films with different amounts of dopant was made using SEM and EDAX analysis. Optical properties of the films were evaluated by measuring transmittance using the UV-vis spectrophotometer. A comparison of the results revealed that lower concentration of Sn doping improves transmittance of CdS films and makes them suitable for application as window layer of CdTe/CIGS solar cells. © 2011 by the authors; licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.

The synthesis of Trimethylol Melamine (TMM) precondensate was carried out by the controlled reaction of formaldehyde with melamine, which belonging to class of partially methylolated thermosetting resins. The product was clear, transparent, viscous and miscible with water. The refractive index, density and maximum absorption of the synthesized TMM was determined. The dyed (C.I. Direct Red 2) cotton and rayon specimens were impregnated with synthesized precondensate (TMM) and Fix M-3(commercially available trimethylol melamine of BSF product), cured at 150°C for 3 min using curing catalyst. The performance of the synthesized and Fix M-3 evaluated using rubbing, washing and light fastness tests. The rubbing fastness to crocking, color fastness to washing and light fastness is reported and found to be dependent on the fixing efficiency of fixer. The fastness to light is found to be dependent on the aromatic character of melamine ring which obviously due to the preferably absorption in the UV region. Source

A series of mono and di-chlorotriazinyl based reactive red dyes were synthesized containing the common H-acid nucleus with different reactive coupling groups-sulfanilic acid, metanilic acid, orthanilic acid, anthranilic acid and tobias acid. These syntheses were monitored by thin-layer chromatography (TLC). The solubility of the synthesized dyes was investigated in water at various temperatures. Their Spectrophotometric data indicated significant alteration in their ëmax values which corresponded to the nature of the substituents (-SO3H, -COOH) of the diazocomponents used. The bi-functional bridged reactive dyes, containing the derivatives of anthranilic acid (KPR-15, KPR-16) showed the highest secondary exhaustion degree from the dyebath while derivatives of tobias acid showed the highest fixation ratio (KPR-19, KPR-20). The improved fastness properties of perspiration, washing and light were investigated. The fabrics with an intense color and good characteristics were obtained, thus presenting a possibility for the extension of usually applied reactive red dyes. Source

Microwave heating was incorporated into the resin transfer moulding technique. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) mould was used to cure the composite panel. Through the use of microwave heating, the mechanical and physical properties of produced Kevlar fibre/polyester composites were compared to those manufactured by conventional resin transfer moulding. The flexural modulus and flexural strength of 6-ply conventionally cured composites was 45% and 9% higher than the flexural modulus and flexural strength of 6-ply microwaved cured composites, respectively. However, 19% increase in interlaminar shear strength (ILSS) and 2% increase in compressive strength was observed in 6-ply microwave cured composites. This enhancement in ILSS and compressive strength is attributed to the better interfacial bonding of polyester resin with Kevlar fibres in microwaved cured composite, which was also confirmed via electron microscopy scanning. Furthermore, the microwave cured composite yielded maximum void contents (3%). Source

The deposition of material at the edge of an evaporating droplet is known as the coffee ring effect. This phenomenon is widespread in various colloidal and bacterial systems. The study has examined the self-assembly and deposition of colloidal rhamno-lipid (a natural surfactant) structures on a glass surface. The effects of the rhamnolipid concentration, pH and the addition of cations on the deposition formation and the alteration in coffee ring effect were studied by using in-vitro scanning electron microscope observation. Above the critical micelle concentration, a transition from ring-like deposition to dispersed deposition is observed. Whereas upon the addition of cations, the multi-distribution of aggregates size enhances the non-homogeneity of the drying film and consequently results in multi-nucleation of rhamnolipid aggregates. © Carl Hanser Publisher, Munich. © Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH & Co.
