Project name: Research, Development and Innovation in the Furniture Industry – CZ.01.1.02/0.0/0.0/15_007/0003592
Project realization: 1.2.2016 – 31.8.2018

Project description and objective:

Part 1 – Development of innovative materials and technologies for the furniture and construction industry

The aim of the first part is to develop materials efficiently utilizing the unprocessed waste material from production, which will have improved selected mechanical properties than existing materials that do not contain secondary or recycled raw material.

The output will be the development of new sandwich composite materials (boards) based on plywood boards made of recycled and secondary raw materials, which can be used as a full replacement for existing systems especially for their expected good sound insulation properties in the interior, strength and low weight.

Part 2 – Use of the latest technologies in the realization of coatings of furniture parts and glass elements with various paints in order to achieve antibacterial PU and reduce VOC emissions

The aim of the second part is to reduce the leakage of VOCs into the environment, to increase the efficiency of paint application and to improve the resulting surface properties especially with regard to the resistance of the surfaces to bacteria. The output will be new verified technological procedures of surface treatment of materials using the modern method of coating and functional samples of such surface-treated furniture parts. The procedures will be applied to the materials developed in the first part as well as the existing materials and the results will be compared with each other.

The project is co-financed by the European Union:
