IMPERTEX Project (Completed)

The aim of the project is to develop a coating system for tissues commonly used in the furniture sector that makes the fabric waterproof without changing other of its properties.

Expected Results:

• Development of a surface coating for textile materials used in upholstered furniture enabling the incorporation of these tissues in the process of upholstering by direct foaming on fabric mold.
• To determine the influence of the surface coating on the properties of the textile fabric.
• Determine the feasibility of the process of upholstering by direct foaming on fabric mold using waterproof fabrics.

Main activities:


• Define the most suitable polymer systems to achieve the objectives.
• Potentially develop formulations suitable for use in textiles coatings.
• Assess the waterproof capacity of treated textiles against upholstery process by casting polyurethane mold.
• Validate treated textiles for use in furniture.
• Obtaining final prototypes.
