CDTI TEHOFUN PROJECT
TEHOFUN RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF FUNCTIONALITIES HOME TEXTILES
Research and development of functionalized home textiles, under TEHOFUN name, is a project funded by CDTI. This research and development project, was started on March 2016 and will ended in June 2017, it is intended to increase added value and provided home textiles with new functional properties. It is working in two areas: First of them the development of fire retardant upholstery with soil-release properties, the second one is focused on the development of home textile (upholstery, curtains, bedding…) with electromagnetic shielding capability. Currently is in execution, at the end of the project is expected to obtain successful results.
CDTI EEA GRANTS PROJECT
IRTEX – DEVELOPMENT OF TEXTIL PROTECTION FROM THE INFRARED RADIATION FOR REDUCING THE TEMPERATURE
The main goal of Francisco Jover S.A. has been the development of curtains with reflecting infrared radiation features (with an important thermal component) and fire retardant capacity through the investigation of nano/micro technology in ceramic and metallic reflecting materials. In both formats, yarn or coating, the result is positive and we have reached a fabric which can reduce the temperature of places exposed to the sunlight, reducing the need of using air conditioning systems or other refrigeration solutions.
