Textile functionalisation & surface modification

WEBINAR - What types of face masks are there? From which raw materials are they best made and what properties should they have? What about their comfort and fit?

The evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrates the need for continued innovation to efficiently mitigate the spread of the virus. Centexbel, HoGENT and VITO are translating the lessons learned into actions to help the industry solve the identified pain points from the first wave in the best possible way.

The Flanders ICON PlasmaSol project will develop more innovative and sustainable adhesion and functionalization technologies for various materials through atmospheric plasma.

The Interreg NWE project CurCol aims to demonstrate economic potential for the production chains from regionally produced plants to colorants in packaging.

CONTEXT brings together European researchers, manufacturers and main relevant stakeholders in order to develop joint ideas and initiatives which can be turned into advanced smart textile products.

WEBINAR - Duratex is an Interreg V France-Wallonia-Flanders project looking for repellents and biobased biocides. The event addresses the legislation on biocides and the development of biobased antibacterial for textiles. All presentations are in English.

This project will focus on biobased plasticizers, antioxidants, UV stabilizers and flame retardants.

Through this project we want to transfer the expertise of Centexbel-VKC in the field of melt processing to the textile coating sector.

The BioCoat project aims to accelerate the transition to bio-based coatings by providing coating companies with knowledge about the formulation, application, performance and applications of bio-based coatings.

The international trade publication bioplastics MAGAZINE is proud to announce the finalists for the 2019 Global Bioplastics Award. Known as the "Bioplastics Oskar", the award will be presented this year for the 14th time in succession.
