Bioinspired textile fiber from liquid protein gel - Innovation @ E2Expo
Updated : December 2020
Water and protein based high performance textiles
Spintex has reproduced spider's unique spinning capabitilities artificially. They spin the fibres at room temperature, just by pulling from a liquid protein gel, without harsh chemicals. Their process is more efficient than equivalent plastic fibres, and water is the only by-product. Uniquely produced, their fibres are biodegradable and cannot bioaccumulate.
