    Surfaceskins are revolutionary antibacterial push plates for doors. Each time the door is pushed open using the SurfaceSkins door plate, the contact surface self-disinfects by releasing a small quantity of antibacterial solution via the micro-valved top sheet. Surfaceskins were developed in direct response to the needs of the hospital and medical sectors to fulfil a vital secondary infection control role, helping to break the chain of infection by reducing the risk of cross contamination and transmission of infections.

    wear2 is a new textile process technology which allows garments to be selectively disassembled at end of life. Incorporating wear2 technology into clothing enables zips, buttons, fastenings, linings and other dis-similar materials to be easily removed without damaging the surrounding fabric. By engineering durable garments that literally “fall apart” on command, wear2 provides a unique means to recover pure fibre, reuse corporate clothing or upcycle garments.

    HydroSpace is an economical means of adding value and functionality to a fabric at the point of manufacture. They have cavities within the material of a predefined shape and size which can be filled with solids, liquids, waxes or gels. The fabrics can be engineered to securely store the contents, or to control their rate of delivery in a specific direction.

    The RADIACAM project is developing a novel technology which addresses a pressing need for the recovery and reuse of the valuable metals, fibres, fabrics and foams that make up mattresses and automotive components, once these products have come to the end of their useful life.
