CENTEXBEL: Blends4Innovation: research on advanced polymer blend technology

The interest in intimate polymer blends is growing fast. The opportunities have been confirmed by Centexbel’s recent research projects. The Cornet project “POMELAD” clearly showed that the use of PO blends generates an extended temperature range for melt adhesion applications while retaining the mechanical properties and processing conditions. The Cornet project “FIBRILTEX” examined blends of PP with PET and of PLA with PTT. The great potential of polymer blends and these preliminary successes drive us to continue the research to fully exploit the application of intimate polymer blends in textiles. Read more
