A research engineer in Saint-Gobain Recherche's Textile Solution Group, Erisela is working on several studies on fibre-glass technical textiles.
"The studies on which I am working are intended to improve acoustic comfort in the home, or to make fitting wall coverings easier", Erisela says. She is currently involved in numerous projects within Saint-Gobain Recherche.
"Some are designed to improve the acoustic performance of wall, floor or ceiling coverings. For this, we are exploring several avenues, such as optimising the physical and chemical properties of the materials: their behaviour to the passage of air for example. Others consist of improving the ease and efficiency of fitting wall coverings."
Commissioned by Saint-Gobain Adfors, these studies are consistent with market needs in terms of wall coverings and acoustic panels. Although one of the studies should lead to a product being marketed in the course of 2011, other projects are still at the research stage.
We develop new materials for comfort, aesthetics, air quality...
