Aims to investigate the production of fibres and fabrics with semi-permanent antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and deodorising properties.
Research, development and manufacture of compact yarns from high-performance fibres. Processing of compact yarns into woven and knitted fabrics.
To exploit silver's properties to give antimicrobial, antistatic and thermo-regulating properties to textile materials. Either silver-containing yarns or novel finish formulations will be applied to this effect.
To develop a suitable liquid mixture that should help reduce the need for artificial fertilizers and make the plant use more nutrients from the soil.
Development and assessment of a new type of protective glove for protection against thermal risks (open flames, infrared radiation, hot objects, molten metal splashes), using a new protective material made from basalt fibres.
The aim of the project is development and clinical tests of a new generation of therapeutic surgical footwear for patients suffering from common simple and medially heavy orthopaedic handicaps.
A product-service system is introduced in the field of energy equipment. A new customer/oem business model will be developed. Modules for surveillance, monitoring and diagnostics, and a collaborative platform for supporting operations and maintenance will be introduced in hydro power plants.
To develop and realise new functionalised textiles with high added value, barrier and filter properties impressing on specially designed and customised textile constructions and technologies of (multi)functional treatments, incl. Nano-fibre and nano-surface structures.
The main objective of the project is the development of novel multifunctional textile structures that include biological active compounds extracted from plants, to prevent the spreading of infectious diseases like borreliosis and other tick-borne bacterial diseases.
To develop a new, high density, high resistance cloth for aviation purposes. The textile will replace traditional nylon 6.6 based cloth and should find a wide range of application in air born sports, e.G. Paragliding, base jumping and skydiving and in outdoor fields.
