PEGAS NONWOVENS s.r.o, a direct subsidiary of PEGAS NONWOVENS SA in cooperation with the Institute of the Physical Electronics associated with the Faculty of Natural Science of the Masaryk University in Brno and with the company INOTEX s.r.o. based in Dvur Králové nad Labem, is commencing R&D project focused on the new generation treatment of nonwoven textiles via the atmospheric plasma.

The treatment of nonwovens textiles via plasma under study should ensure an effective fixation of active particles of the fibre surface which may increase or improve utilization of nonwoven textiles in the hygiene and technical applications.

The primary aim of the project is the attestation of a potential volume reduction of currently used functional additives in order to achieve necessary parameters of nonwoven textiles for hygiene applications.

In addition, project includes a development of plasma modification which should lead to durability improvement of required parameters during multiple usage of nonwovens.

A highly positive benefit of the project is a reduction of used additives which will be more environment friendly.

This project with a total budget of up to CZK 70 million during 2008 – 2011 obtained a grant from programme called “Trvalá Prosperita” under the research and development support programmes tendered by the Czech Ministry of Industry and Trade in May 2007.

Based on Company's estimates, the total amount of the grant may reach up to CZK 25 million.

By a successful completion of the project, PEGAS will continue in its previous successful achievements in the area of research and development.

The project shall enable a commercialization of new products with unique parameters and with higher added value which are of a key focus of PEGAS, one of the leading firms in the market.
