Comparison between Natural and Artificial Aging of Polyethylene Textiles for the Design of Mosquito-proof Shield Adapted to Tropical Environment

Abstract : This study is part of a project initiated by the French Agency, ARS (Agence Regional de la Santé) in Guadeloupe to fight against the spread of the mosquito Aedes aegypti in the past years. These mosquitoes are responsible for several major tropical diseases outbreaks such as the dengue fever, Chikungkunya and more recently Zika. The finality of this project is to design and manufacture a mosquito-proof shield product to prevent larvaes of mosquitos to develop in rain recuperation reservoir and thus to reduce the mosquito population and the infection risk.
