  2. SBIR Phase I: Scalable Manufacture of Natural Fiber Welded Yarn

    SBC: Natural Fiber Welding, Inc.            Topic: MN

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to prove the technical feasibility and the economic viability of natural fiber welded and dyed yarns and fabrics. Natural fiber welding is process that swells and mobilizes polymers within natural fibers to create higher performance yarns and fabrics. At sufficiently fast rates, individual fibers are fused and bonded together without glues or resins while retaining a ...
