Expert UK SME in antimicrobial nanocoatings has developed a new technology for the incorporation of novel antimicrobial silver nanocoposites onto textiles. The SME is aiming to apply for Eurostars (call 6) competition and looking for Engineering companies for upscaling of its nancomposites from lab to pilot scale and their coating technology.
The SME is looking for partners in the field of Chemical Engineering capable of process and production design for upscaling of the lab process for the preparation of the developed nanocomposite and their incorporation/attachment onto textiles. In this project, a small scale production line (e.g. 100Kg/week) is targeted. The chemical process involves four steps of reaction, washing and decanting/centrifuging. The process may involve strong acids and oxidizing/reducing agents. The active row material will then be used for the attachment onto fabrics via a simple one step process during the textile manufacturing followed by washing. Either SMEs with material engineering background and production technology who are interested in antimicrobial coatings AND/OR textile manufacturers with interests and capabilities of above or have access to them are particularly sought.
