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. Up to now, small collections were able to be made using pilot solutions. The goal of this innobooster project is to bring up the washing step to full automation with a certain speed as well as bringing the final membrane roll to the required performance and visual quality. Your textWe will first work together with our Swiss partner to upgrade a washing machine to our needs and then work on improving the speed of production and the overall quality of the membrane. Finally, we will take these learnings and move towards a more international production line. This scale up will enable us to provide for medium and big collections with brand partners.
