US textile manufacturer Milliken has the right to manufacture and market products based on the PURE technology throughout the world.
The Dutch based Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group will continue to market the products under the PURE trademark. PURE technology was developed by Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group b.v. in cooperation with the Technical University of Eindhoven.
Materials made with this technology are characterized by high stiffness, low weight, high impact strength, and 100% recyclability. The technology is based on 100% Polypropylene co-extruded tapes, which can be woven into fabric and compacted into sheet. Fabrics and sheet can be molded into various parts. The material is applicable to a broad range of markets, including automotive, consumer, piping, water sport and personal protective gear. Research also shows a potential for anti-ballistic markets.
The Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group, privately owned, is an international operating company specializing in high performance rope, technical yarn, recycled products, netting and yachting equipment.
Milliken & Company, located in South Carolina, USA, are one of the largest privately held textile and chemical manufacturers in the world.
