With the nanotechnology project completed in the laboratories of the Electronic Materials Production and Application Center of Dokuz Eylül University, the world’s first heat-emitting nano-composite textile material was produced. Scientists producing portable sauna, underfloor heating system, carpet and blanket with low voltage energy product are preparing to develop clothes that will attract the interest of space and defense industry …


Nano-composite heat emitting textile material developed by Turkish scientists has brought a revolutionary solution to the heating need of human beings. With the patented technology, the fabrics will function as stoves. The first product using the invention, which is expected to provide significant changes from residential heating to astronaut clothing, from fashion to defense industry in a wide area, was the “portable sauna”.

The Electronic Material Production and Application Center (EMUM), established within the body of Dokuz Eylül University with the support of the Ministry of Development and aiming to develop high value-added technologies from domestic sources, draws attention with its patents. The center, which received patents for many inventions developed for the first time in the world in nanotechnology and chemical technologies, has realized a revolutionary invention in heating technology with the project of developing heat-emitting nano-composite films and textile materials.


Director of EMUM Dr. Erdal Çelik and DEU Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department Research Assistant Mustafa Erol’s project for the development of heat-emitting nano-composite materials, which they started in 2007, developed products such as portable saunas, underfloor heating for residential and greenhouses, water heating systems for combi boilers, heat emitting carpets and blankets.

He made a statement to the AA correspondent about the heat emitting textile material. Dr. Çelik said that they are working on nanotechnology projects that can be applied to daily life at the center which has the number of advanced devices in the world and they aim to develop functional materials that will make life easier by working on the scales of one billionth of a meter.

During the discussions on the idea of ​​developing heat emitting materials by nanotechnological intervention, Çelik explained that they developed a project to see if they could produce a portable sauna as a final product. He said that they are trying to apply the graphite material, which is a derivative, to nano dimensions.

6 years of work within the scope of grinding grinded to nano-sized graphites, polymers and textile materials on the processing of the steel describing the material, 12-volt electric heat-emitting material provides a homogeneous heating, he said.

Explaining how many degrees of heat can reach the textile or film can reach up to a maximum of Steel, they developed the material can be folded as desired, said stretching.

He stated that the heating in classical heaters can be done by means of metal resistors, the heat formed on the wire by spreading to the environment is created at a very high degree, the heating of the material in the nano-composite material is homogeneous in all materials, and this provides more secure and low cost heating.

“We have developed a technology that will revolutionize heat technologies,” he said Steel, using the technology so far portable sauna, heat emitting carpet and blanket said.

Çelik said that they still use the portable sauna they produce at home and said:

“We cover 2 square meters of nanocomposite film and turn it into a cylindrical chamber. This product will start with daily use of heat-emitting carpets, portable saunas and small-size heat-emitting textiles. Our improvement works on heat-emitting blankets and clothing are continuing. ”


Dr. In his statement, Mustafa Erol said that this material, which can be used in all areas where heat is needed, is produced with very cheap raw materials and has lower installation and operating costs compared to other heating devices.

Stating that the material produced in laboratory conditions with a total cost of 100 pounds per square meter can be produced much cheaper if mass production is started, Erol said that houses can be heated much cheaper than natural gas with nanocomposite material.


The system continues to experiment on garments, astronaut clothes, military and sporting use for the development of expressing Erol, “This technology will bring significant changes in winter clothes in the near future. For example, battery-operated heat-emitting textiles made of textiles, the winter can eliminate the problem of cold. We are open to suggestions on developing the system in different directions.
