The CORNET-project RAPACOAT “3D raster-pattern coating of technical woven and knitted fabrics for stabbing and cutting protection” which started on 1st of January 2017 held its Kick-off meeting at STFI in Chemnitz (DE) on 8th of February 2017. Besides STFI and Forschungskuratorium Textil e.V. (FKT) as German partners, the Czech company SINTEX a.s. and the Czech cluster organisation CLUTEX are involved in the research cooperation. Objective of the project is the development of a novel textile structure with a functional 3D raster-pattern coating protecting the textile material against multiple mechanical risks while having maximum flexibility as well as improved tactility and wear comfort.
