Project title: Obtaining easy-to-clean textile products able to repel dirt through Nano scale modifications.
Schedule: 1 July 2008 – 30 June 2010
Eligible investment: 283,516.53 Euros
The aim of this project is to develop and implement the technology needed to get easy-to-clean textile products that are bale of repelling dirt. The product line to be developed is to be part of a strategy of systemising and integrating the programmed Technological Research and Development (TR&D) in the company. The idea is not only to develop a line on innovative, high added value products, but also to encourage the creation of Industrial Intellectual property and integrate a concerted TR&D effort in the company. The experimental TR&D activities that should lead to the creation of new products have assistance from CITEVE and CeNTI.
The result of the project is to be shown through the presentation of a line of innovative, easy-to-clean products that can repel water and dirt. The overall result of the project should also allow the company to significantly increase its capacity to develop new products through the generation, registering and exploitation of scientific and technological knowledge by establishing synergies between the textile industry and the National Scientific and Technology System, represented here by CITEVE and CeNTI.
