About this Event

We speak to Co-Founders of Spintex Engineering Ltd, Alex and Martin.

 

University of Oxford spin-out that is now based at WCFI, Spintex Engineering Ltd have developed a unique technology for producing strong and pure ‘spider-like’ fibres. The fibres self-assemble from a liquid feedstock, with energy efficiency 1000x greater than synthetic polymers spinning.

About Spintex

Spintex has developed a spider-inspired technology platform that can create bespoke, next generation fibres and materials from a liquid protein solution. The artificially spun silk filaments are produced sustainably and efficiently. Fibres are spun from this feedstock, purely by applying a small pulling force, which forms the solid fibres through self-assembly, mimicking the spinning of the spider. The resulting fibres find use in sustainable textiles, as well as for advanced applications in regenerative medicine and technical textiles.
