EcoPUR aims at developing a polyurethane coating on a synthetic textile in compliance with future environmental and health legislations in anticipation of future production standards.

The actual coating manufacturing procedures of these coatings used in mattress covers (medical sector) need the use of organic substances that can be replaced with eco-friendlier alternatives. The EcoPUR project will allow the production of mattress covers complying with the highest specifications by using techniques that respect both workers and users.

The knowledge of new VOC-free formulations and technologies and their valorisation in a hospital setting will allow the partners to conquer new markets.
