The iHeatex - Multifunctional Felt and Intelligent Hybridization Project [Project nº 033098] aims at the research and development of new multifunctional, intelligent hybridization three-dimensional structures and architectures with active moisture and heating management properties, whose developments will be directed to two typologies of felted products for application in home textiles and hotels: bath articles and kitchen articles.

The project objectives will be achieved through the intelligent development of functional, hybrid and driver materials. Also at the level of three-dimensional felted textile structures, this project predict significant advances, in particular in spinning, weaving and finishing technologies. In order to guarantee the success of the project, a multidisciplinary consortium with complementary valences was defined in the key areas of innovation composed by J.F. Almeida, and two ENESII entities (CITEVE and CeNTI).



Main goals:

1. Development of the knowledge and intellectual and industrial property necessary to exploit the developed technologies;

2. To promote and stimulate innovation and development of new methodologies for the design and research of new products;

3. Development of the capacity for intervention in the area of embedded electronics;

4. Development of innovative felt structures for bathroom articles with the capacity of enhancing the absorption of water and/or moisture and rapid drying, as well as smart heating capacity;

5. Development of three-dimensional heating felts for table tops.
