plant fibres and coatings: new project

0 Post

Tuesday 03 November 1998 1:00:00 am

Hello

I am a fibre chemaist with an interest in the use of natural plant
fibres as replacements for existing synthetics. Recently I completed
an EEC funded project entitled

DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW COATED MEMBRANE TEXTILE
USING NATURAL PLANT FIBRES.

I hope to develope this further using natural and or chemically
treated flax as a basis for a roofing material. In the latter
project polyurethane coatings were used but I would like to expand
this to other coatings with specific properties. The aim is to apply
to the EEC and/or the government via a LINK sheme to fund further
research. Are you aware of companies interested in adding their support.
I'm not asking for money only a register of interest and a chat with the
development people regarding this application.
Please feel free to send this introduction to others that may be
interested in such a project.

Cheers
