Objective

All citizens are permanently protected by flexible structures with barrier effect: fire retardancy, noise and thermal insulation, shield against electrostatic or electromagnetic phenomena, filtration of dust or insects... The application of flexible structure is very large thanks to their easy adapting properties and shape. The flexible structures, generally based on paper, leather or textile are usually treated to serve only one barrier effect. Nevertheless, the will to maximise the level of safety in building, transportation and to ensure the well-being of European citizens, requires a whole re-design of flexible structure functions that is the main purpose of FLEXIFUNBAR. For instance to prevent from all external aggressions in hazardous atmosphere, flexible structures must provide at least three banier effects. Concretely as an example, a filter dedicated to transportation could all-in-one: - trap pollen, dust particles with diameter lower than 0.2 microns, even if the concentration is less than 20 micrograms. - prevent from fire, during 30 seconds under a heat flux equal at 20kW/m2. - prevent diffusion of toxic gas and pollutants like carbon monoxide in automotive interiors. fhe textile, paper and leather are traditional industrial sectors that involve a large majority of high tech SME's. That is why FLEXIFUNBAR has been especially dedicated to SME's. The specific topic in the "2003 NMP Nanotechnologies, Materials and Production processes" call fits perfectly the content and objectives of the proposed integrated project. The brief following description of objectives summarises the relevance of Flexifunbar to priority 3 : 1. The ultimate goal of Flexifunbar initiative is to develop innovative generation of hybrid multi barrier-effect materials, based on multi layer complex structures and functionalisation of micro and nanostructures.
