Develop & enhance your products
With world-class expertise and complete pilot-scale prototyping capability, NIRI exploits fibre and material science, as well as process engineering to design, develop, scale-up and validate nonwoven and fibre products.
Meet our experts
Our textile scientists and engineers can enhance product performance and accelerate innovation
You own 100% of the IP in your field
Our ultimate goal is to develop IP for our customers that generates profit and helps them grow their business. All of our services are confidential so open innovation and effective collaboration can be conducted in a safe and secure environment.
This is also one of the main ways that we differentiate ourselves from universities or research institutes. We are easy to contract with, so we can focus on driving the innovation and building trusting relationships.
Unique industry oversight
We service the whole of the nonwoven supply chain on a global scale, including:
Raw Materials Manufacturers
Bridging the gap between fundamental research and commercialisation:
“We ensure target performance by exploiting fibre science, processing and geometric structure.”
Steven Neill, CTO
Using our knowledge and innovation know-how, we can identify raw materials and polymers available from the global supply chain and process them into fibres and fabrics with specific 3D architectures and target performances. Furthermore, we can develop and apply late stage added functionalisation techniques to enhance the nonwoven performance properties and product value.
