AITEX is working on the research and development of the following projects:
The main objective of year two of DENTALTEX II is to create a prototype consisting of a micro-porous central core, covered by different nanofibre veils additivated with drugs for periodontal treatment.
The main objective of the FUNDETEX project is to develop detergent and softener formulations that provide functional properties to the skin that are beneficial for the user’s health, through research into additives and liquid and solid functional compounds of interest (mosquito-repellent, moisturising, anti-cellulite, etc.). In addition, studies will determine how effective the transfer of the properties of the detergent or softener to the user is, when in contact with the washed clothes and fabrics.
The core objective of BIENESMART is the development of textile solutions that monitor vital signs and physiological and biological parameters for the improvement of people’s well-being.
The objective of the STAR project is the research and development of smart textiles for architecture and construction that allow users to interact with technological, sustainable and creative infrastructures that enhance their quality of life.
These projects are funded by the Conselleria d’Economia Sostenible, Sectors Productius, Comerç i Treball of the Generalitat Valenciana, through IVACE.
