The outdoor clothing industry is struggling to replace harmful chemicals in their products. Dimpora offers high performing waterproof and breathable membranes based on sustainable materials. We empower outdoor enthusiasts to finally enjoy the nature they love so dearly without leaving a trace.
The production of dimpora’s membranes relies for most of it on existing machinery but for one step: a washing step, at the end of the process, is necessary to create the porosity. This washing step needs further development on machines and this requires a strong collaboration with Swiss and international Textile partners. Thanks to InnoBooster and our Swiss partners, we have made significant improvements to the washing process already. We are now capable of washing > 1000 m of membrane on an existing automated machine. Other machines are currently being tested as potential manufacturing procedures aiming to reduce the costs of production. In addition, we still have to improve certain aspects of the optical quality of the membrane.
