Solid textile board
- story by MaterialDistrict
Solid Textile Board is a high-density material made from end-of-life textiles and cut offs from Kvadrat. Considering current textile waste streams, the board is made up of cotton and wool (70% textile, 30% bicomponent binder) as these textiles are typically downgraded in existing recycling processes. The board can be an alternative to a variety of existing materials depending on the application. In designing the board material, focus has been on making a composite that, through its properties, can replace or even bring additions to existing material offerings and thereby be an honest alternative.
The input materials, and hence the colours, have been selected with consideration of current resource streams. The core of Solid Textile Board is made from end-of-life white cotton from industrial laundries. The colour are added as an outer layer.
