“We ensure target performance by exploiting fibre science, processing and geometric structure”

Bridging the gap between fundamental research & commercialisation

We can use our knowledge and innovation know-how to identify raw materials and polymers from the global supply chain and process them into fibres and fabrics with specific 3D architectures and target performances. Furthermore, we can develop and apply late stage added functionalisation techniques to enhance the product’s performance properties and value
