In cooperation with the institute for leather and synthetic materials (Forschungsinstitut für Leder und Kunststoffbahnen, FILK, Freiberg, Saxony) an innovative continuous technology to produce a laminate of a textile membrane using reactive and highly viscous silicone based adhesives has been successfully developed. The applied spraying technology is based on an especially developed rotary atomizer, which is capable to transform liquids of very high viscosities far higher than 30 Pas into droplets, see photography. The project was financially supported by the ministery of economy and technology (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Technologie, BMWi).
