Industrial investment project

Industrial investment project 2014-2015 for the optimization and promotion of competitiveness.

FIELD (Fabric Improved Against Electrostatic Discharge)

FIELD (Fabric Improved against ELectrostatic Discharge) is a R&D project that will allow Techs to obtain new antistatic fabrics (ESD) and electrically conductive fabrics for both Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and technical applications.


GRAFENTEX National Project

GRAFENTEX National Project cofunded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO), through the convening Challenges – Collaboration 2013-2016. CTC and Textil Santanderina take part in an innovation project based on the optimisation of graphene production and its application in the fire resistant technical textile. The project, named GRAFENTEX, will allow to produce fire resistant textiles with a low environmental impact and high performance to Textil Santanderina, and will reinforce the european leadership of the company of Cantabria in the technical textile sector.


This is a highly luminous technical fabric which maintains its high-visibility properties after 
30 washes and which also shows long-lasting phosphorescence. It is the result of a research project carried out together with 
the University of Cantabria. The research project was cofunded by the Regional Ministry of Industry and Innovation, through the convening INNOVA (INNPULSA 2012-2015). Ref. 2014/INN/013.

LIFE SHRETEX (Shredding process development for textile recycling throughout the whole value chain of textile manufacturing)

The main aim of the project is to demonstrate a novel shredding process that allows the reuse of fibres from used clothing or fibrous waste from the value chain, to produce new garments using recycled fibres from waste garments. These recycled garments will have a similar quality as non-recycled ones. In addition, the efficiency of the manufacturing process will be improved, since it will be possible to reuse all waste generated during the manufacturing process along the whole value chain (it possible to increase the proportion of recycled material for manufacturing new garments by up to six times compared with 
what current processes allow).


The main aim of the project is to study and validate an innovative Integrated Solution for Warehouse 
Control and Asset Marking. Development and pilot validation of advanced internal logistics localisation solutions for integrated textile manufacturing processes.


This is an antistatic fabric resulting from an R+D project with 98% recycled polyester in its manufacturing and resistance to 30 industrial washes, making it far 
superior to the competition.


Project to reduce the emissions of microfibres throughout the manufacturing chain and maintenance 
of fabrics and garments.


Project to manufacture recycled polyester from waste taken from the sea.
