Project acronym : Tex-Shield
Project full title : Durable Water and Oil Repellence Finish on Textiles
Call Identifier : FP7-Research on Benefits of SME Associations
Project Website : http://www.texshield-project.eu

The overall project aim is to provide the European textile industry to restore approximately €5.3 Billion market. with an alternative material to C8 PFC with comparable performance. This will be achieved through extending our understanding of various other alternatives to deliver durable water and oil repellent coatings.

With this knowledge we will develop a cost effective, environmentally friendly solution that has the ability to be bonded to the fabric in order to provide durable multifunctional performance especially, as different industries and applications require multifunctional coatings.

Furthermore, it would be an added advantage for the textiles industry to be able to manufacture textiles with multifunctional features at highly competitive prices.
