SME from Lithuania is looking for technology solution for using textiles left over from production processes. the sought-after technological solution will help to use unused textile materials.
Company is based in Lithuania. Close distance to Latvian border, Sea port Klaipeda, Palanga airport. Main products- textile fabrics. - High pile fabrics (artificial fur) for garment lining , shoe lining, plush for paintrollers - quilted materials. Thread and Ultrasound quilting. Commission quilting. - laminated materials (laminated high pile with PU films, paper board and felt for soles, bonding fabrics together, etc) . 20 % of production is supplied to Lithuanian customers; 80 % -Europe and export from EU. Production of high pile fabrics-"artificial fur" for different applications: - Fabric for garment lining and thermowear (from synthetic fibres and from blends with natural fibres). Products suits for work-wear , leisure-wear and casual-wear . FR qualities are available; -knitted wadding- fibre fill . Suits as insulation materia;. -shoe lining (from synthetic fibres and from blends with natural fibres; -High pile knitted fabrics- plush for paintrollers production. Can be supplied in pieces or stilted in stripes. Quilted fabrics : -Thread and Ultrasound quilting. Commission quilting, -Fabrics for garment lining, FR linings, -Quilting for mattresses. Laminating. High pile fabrics laminated with PU films, paper board and felt for soles, bonding fabrics together, etc.
Advantages and innovations
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought
- During production process it is accumualted production waste
- loose small fraction fibres, cuttings of knitted high pile fabrics with coatied backings, not coated backings and etc. Company is focusing on waste utilisation solutions, trying to minimise utilisation in burning plant. We strongly believe that one of possibilities is to re-use it as foundation insulation blocks for construction, pipe lines, insulating materials for partitions or slabs. Company accumulates about 50-60 tons of environmental friendly textile waste a year. Looking for partners to create reprocessing technology and presenting of up-cycled products to potential customers in potential users.
Technology Readiness Level: The challenger is open for all kinds of ideas . (TRL 1-9)
