COVER OF KLIMAHAUS CASACLIMA MAGAZINE WHERE RADCARPET ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED

TEXT IN ENGLISH: Two years ago CASACLIMA Agency was offered to participate in an EU project, which aims to develop a carpet which generated heat by simple induction. The name RADCARPET stands for "radiant heating Wall to Wall carpet". To this end, a consortium of two research institutes, three medium-sized companies and the CASACLIMA Agency was established, which has been granted from the European Commission FP7 research and innovation programme. The German Institute for special textiles and flexible materials TITV and Spanish Tecnologias Avanzadas Inspiralia have thereby develop innovative textiles, which generate a lot of heat with little electricity, thanks to the obtaining of the best materials and the best conductive fibers with a proper electrical. Security risks and production risks are low enough to achieve a satisfactory market potential of at least 100 million euros. This part of the project is now well advanced and achieved positive results, which were in some cases even better than the specifications. The consortium has not disclose to the public technical details as this is a very sensitive information, so this will be done after completion of all patent legal action. The medium-sized companies are now busy at work. The French fiber experts of R-stat hereby produce the fibers, which are processed by the German Maxitex Gmbh in a nonwoven fabric. Finally, a Swiss company TISCA, produced the finished carpet, with all its components. The CASACLIMA Agency will eventually take care of examining the first prototypes for everyday use and to disseminate information on the product at the appropriate time. At the current point of view, the new product could be used especially for building renovation and for highly efficient new buildings, which have only a low heating demand. For the same reason it could also be for warm climates such as the Mediterranean area. This project would not be possible without the support of the European Union, that under the now expired 7th Framework Program for Research and Development, the Commission wanted to encourage cooperation between European operators in order to promote the competitiveness of the European economy and promote its core issues such as climate change and energy efficiency. If the signs do not deceive, which was also confirmed by the mid-term control of the Commission a few months ago, this project could bring in over the next year an extremely innovative and energy-efficient product on the market. For CASACLIMA Agency it is an exciting task, to contribute to success, and points to a direction in which they will be involved increasingly in the future.


R-STAT at TECHTERA workshops, Lyon, France | 2014/2015

Established in 2005, Techtera is the most prominent cluster for the technical textile industry in the Rhône-Alpes region, leader in France with 18% of the European production and 70% of turnover of France’s technical textile industry. Since its creation, Techtera has recruited about 220 members, for a total of more than 350 business and production units specialized in technical textiles. TECHTERA raises strategic questions addressing major technical and economical issues of the technical textile industry. The cluster assists collaborative research proposals resulting from this questioning process, up to trial phase and products prototyping. TECHTERA connects manufacturers, technical centers and research centers with the purpose to revitalize the links between companies from the textile sector and to offer an access to new markets, especially abroad through European projects and internationalization. The TECHTERA team uses an important network of skills, competences and persons, outside of its sector.

ACTIVITY Nº 1:
On 7th October 2014 R.STAT exchanged mutual experiences during a Techtera meeting on EU projects and explained RADCARPET objectives.

ACTIVITY Nº 2:
On 07th July 2015, R.STAT attended a TECHTERA workshop on “electromagnetism and textile” where other SMEs, research and development centers and laboratories were involved. There, R.STAT highlighted its participation in an EU project and its role in this project, explaining RADCARPET’s main objectives and goals. It is foreseen to continue collaboration with this working group in order to promote new corrosion coated SilveR.STAT fibres and their applications for electromagnetic shielding.

For R.STAT, this activity allowed them to show their customers and prospects that they have the ability to collaborate to complex technical and scientific projects.

RADCARPET prototype at R-Stat booth

The preliminary results of RADCARPET project have been presented by Philippe Sannejan and Pascal Peninon to R.STAT’s visitors, partners. Three innovations coming out from the project have been shown :
  • Novel corrosion resistant SilveR.STAT fibres
  • Novel heat conductive yarn
  • Prototype of a heating carpet
For each innovation, a leaflet has been created and included closed to the material shown. Visitors were impressed by the RADCARPET heating prototype shown and the temperature that could be reached with such textile media. For confidential reasons, none of the heating components were accessible or disclosed by R.STAT to any visitor. A needlefelt carpet manufacturer, Findeisen GmbH, in Germany, was also interested in using RADCARPET technology and is willing to be a future RADCARPET partner. All these information have been transferred by R.STAT to the consortium, especially to TISCA-Tiara who will bring RADCARPET to the market and could if willed or needed license Findeisen GmbH.
