The program

Shieldex for startups

At Shieldex, we take pride in supporting startups worldwide with our program, “Shieldex for Startups.” Our program provides startups with access to high-quality metallized yarns, fabrics, textiles, and nonwovens they need to develop their innovative ideas and products.

We understand that startups often work with limited resources and struggle to access high-quality materials. That’s why we developed the Shieldex for Startups program to help them advance their research and development projects and achieve their goals. In addition to providing materials, we also offer advice to our startups regarding the appropriate materials to help them develop their business ideas.

We believe that supporting startups in research and development can help promote innovation and progress in various industries. At Shieldex, we are proud to contribute to this effort by helping startups worldwide bring their ideas and products to success.

The program

Shieldex for studies

Through the “Shieldex for Studies” project, we support students worldwide who want to conduct research using our metallized yarns, fabrics, textiles, and nonwovens. For example, the conductivity of textiles or the shielding of electromagnetic radiation may be examined. From our own experience, we know that good research takes time.

From the initial idea to the final implementation, many months can pass – as was the case with our Shieldex metallization process, on which our entire product development is based. By helping students with their research and shortening the development time by providing samples, we do this with conviction.
