Centexbel supports new technologies, products and processes, also with open innovation and tries to implement this together with the textile and plastics sector. Our activities include research & innovation, testing, certification, consultancy, and training. As such, Centexbel offers its equipment platform to external entities. This means the equipment, together with operators, can be rented. Equipment is available for extrusion (monofil, multifil and bico filaments), for coating (e.g. semi-industrial roll-to-roll coater) and for textile processing (knitting, weaving, braiding). Centexbel has also extensive testing and characterisation facilities, including a physcial, chemical, fire and microbiological lab.
Key focus points in R&D are resource efficency and sustainability, eg by using solvent-free solutions or biobased materials.
