Research and development of textile garment sports mask type incorporating sensorization and anti-covid-19 filtered ventilation system (sport-mask)
Research and development project.
Grupo ECO 3G has participated in the management of the R+D+i project “RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF SPORTS MASK-TYPE TEXTILE GARMENTS INCORPORATING SENSORIZATION AND ANTI-COVID-19 FILTERING VENTILATION SYSTEM (SPORT-MASK)” with the Cantabrian company INTERNATIONAL AUSTRAL SPORT, S.A. and whose objective is to develop a mask for sports practice in the face of the current or future pandemic situation. For this, the research to be carried out in the project focused on the one hand on the fabric and its fibers since, in addition to complying with the barrier requirements to Covid-19, they must also be suitable for sports use. And on the other hand, it has been combined with an air flow sensing solution in order to optimize said flow by incorporating a light ventilation system favoring sports practice.
The project has been financed by the Center for Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI) and has been successfully developed during the period between May 25, 2020 and August 25, 2021 and has had the support of the AITEX Textile Technological Institute in its technical section.
With this project, the company hopes to expand its product portfolio with items with high added value, innovation and high performance, which will also allow it to assure its customers that they will perceive the entrepreneurial nature of the company and the concern to offer new functionalities and experiences with their customers products.
AUSTRAL, with extensive experience in R&D&i, has generated several projects in the last five years that have represented a great advance in areas such as electronics applied to sports and that have benefited athletes from all over the world in events such as the Olympic Games of Tokyo or various world championships. In addition, it has been a pioneer in the development of projects in Circular Economy and Sustainability recognized by the various regional and national Administrations. This has allowed ECO 3G to already have first contacts with companies in France and Portugal with which they have had first approaches.
