The European Centre of Innovative Textiles (CETI) is the answer for companies using textiles that rank in terms of their innovative properties. The aim of CETI is to produce, thanks to their innovation design dedicated space and their research and development platform, solutions and demonstrators that provide proof of new intelligent textiles interacting with our aspirations of : eco-design and recycling (bio-sourced textiles, ultrathin filaments and composites), new functionality included in the textile base (Health, well-being,…) and permanent connection.CETI is a unique, technological platform including : one of five platforms of three spinning components existing in the world, used to create new materials and a flexibility of the configuration of its lines "spun-laid" and "dry laid " with over 100 existing possible combinations to create new non-woven textile structures.
CETI is dedicated to research and innovation through 3 kinds of activities :
Own research : Investigation of innovative concepts while developing knowledge and skills - Public funded.
Collaborative research : Contribution to collaborative R&D research programs thanks to its skilled staff and pilot equipment. Funding as partner or sub-contractor.
Private research : Participation in private R&D programs on customers’ request.
These activities include R&D on products and processes, prototyping, sampling.
CETI’s Technologies bring new opportunity for companies and laboratories to:
Test spinnability of new polymers,
Create functionalized filaments,
Create fine filaments and fibres,
Combine polymers in a filament or in fabrics
Develop nonwovens by combining different technologies
