Spray-on clothing... skin tight!

Spray-on clothing in a can to be launched

Scientists at Imperial College London have developed a liquid clothing spray that hardens on the body and turns into a reusable garment.

Dr Manel Torres and Professor Paul Luckham have developed a spray that contains small fibres which are mixed with polymers to join them together and a solvent that keeps the fabric in liquid form in the can.
The solvent evaporates instantly as the spray touches a surface, creating a smooth clothing material that can be washed and re-worn.
The spray may in the future be used to create garments, medical dressings or upholstery for furniture.
