Project title: New multifunctional PP dispersions, fibres and textiles “NOVLATEX”
Identification number of the project: APVV-0056-12
Duration of the project: 10/2013 – 12/2015
Applicant: VÚTCH-CHEMITEX, spol. s r.o., Žilina
Co-operating institution: Research Institute for Man-Made Fibers (VÚCHV a.s.), Svit
CHEMOSVIT-Fibrochem a.s. Svit
Responsible investigator: Ing. Jozef Šesták, CSc.
Characteristics of the project:
Research solution in the frame of Partial task 01 (VÚCHV a.s.) focuses on applied and material technological research aimed at preparation of two types of multifunctional PP concentrates of novelty origin designed for incorporation into PP fibres: a) concentrate of additives for flammability reduction (FR), antimicrobial (AMB) finish and simultaneous enhancement of resistance to UV radiation (UV); b) concentrate of additives for antistatic (ANT) and antimicrobial (AMB) finish.
Research solution in the frame of Partial task 02 (Chemosvit-Fibrochem a.s.) focuses on innovative technological preparation and verification of manufacturing process of multifunctional PP fibres: a) linear density: 5-7 dtex with FR+UV+AMB finish; b) microfiber, linear density 0,9- 2,0 dtex with ANT, AMB and moisture management finish.
Research solution in the frame of Partial task 03 (VÚTCH-CHEMITEX, spol. s r.o.) focuses on verification of the prepared multifunctional PP fibres in the innovated textiles designed for home applications, sportswear, leisurewear and underwear.
