The NanoTextSurf project aims at creating unique material properties and next generation products with surface treatments and coatings containing nanocelluloses. Nanocelluloses are plant or usually wood-based nanomaterials that have particles sizes in nanometer scale.
The nanotextured surfaces are created on textile, paper, and plastic webs with various application techniques. After the treatment, the web has properties such as antifouling, pollutant capturing, improved strength and enhanced abrasion resistance.
These innovations have the potential to boost European industry’s competitiveness. However, more procedures and technologies for the manufacturing of nanomaterials must be developed.
