Next-generation smart textiles put to the test in collaboration between LunaMicro and TST Sweden
The 26th of September, 2023
LunaMicro AB, a deep tech start-up specializing in smart textiles, and TST Sweden, a world-leading developer of protective clothing and equipment, announce the next step in their mutual development project of PPE garments employing LunaMicro’s active moisture management technology.
“We are proud of this next step in the development project, which includes evaluation of LunaMicro’s textile pump in the challenging water jetting environments where TST Sweden’s PPE is used,” says Nate Robinson, CEO and founder of LunaMicro.
LunaMicro’s patented technology is a soft flexible fabric pump that moves water from one side of a fabric to the other. Pumping sweat through an otherwise waterproof garment makes difficult working conditions safer, and increases the comfort of the wearer.
“TST is an industry leader in their market, and both our companies are focusing on safety and health. The combination of TST Sweden’s protective clothing and LunaMicro’s technology is exciting,” says Nate Robinson.
“LunaMicro’s moisture management technology is a very interesting innovation. We are curious to see how this technology could be used in our products in the future,” says Catrin Tammjärv, Research and Development at TST Sweden AB.
