Project: Manufacturing textiles with electromagnetic shielding and fire retardant properties by plasma based methods

Acronym TexEMFiRe (Reference Number: MNET17/NMAT-1154)
Duration 01/01/2018 - 31/12/2019
Project Topic Manufacturing textile industry critically needs to adopt novel concepts and strategies for reducing energy consumption and for minimizing the environmental impact, while producing new class of smart textiles. In TexEMFiRe project we propose the development and investigation of new textile materials with improved electromagnetic shielding (EMS) and flame retardand (FR) properties, devoted to the Buildtech domain, by utilization of eco- friendly plasma based techniques working at low and atmospheric pressure. Breakthroughs in the development of new class of coatings are expected since quantitative information on the plasma deposition process, EMS and FR properties will be gathered for the realization of the Life Cycle Assesment of modified textiles. The project is combining synergistically the expertize in plasma physics and coating technology, material science, textile engineering and manufacturing, bringing together in a tight collaboration universities, research institutes, SMEs and accredited laboratories. Such approach is going to foster the results implementation into industrial practice and to yield a strong valorization in terms of economic and scientific benefits.
