A local Singapore company is seeking innovative materials that is environmentally friendly and easily combustible upon contact with fire, to replace existing technologies being used in their industry.
The company is currently using cellulose-based sheets, which can be printed on and easily folded or shaped by hand into 3-dimensional (3D) forms. The material also enables easy combustion, upon contact with fire, producing non-toxic fumes and ash post-combustion. However, it is not possible to mould the current material into 3D forms and structures.
This company is thus keen to explore development opportunities and adopt solutions that can be moulded into 3D forms and structures with colour easily applied. In addition, the material should also carry existing properties of current solutions, such as easily combustible upon contact with fire, produce less non-toxic fumes and ideally no ash post-combustion.
Solution providers should be open to work closely with the company to test the solution, and further develop the technology to meet the said requirements.
The proposed solution must carry the following properties:
On top of the earlier mentioned, the following properties are good to have:
