Reducing Environmental Impacts
Fabrican’s ethos is to provide industry with production processes that reduce environmental impacts. Fabrican technology compresses the industrial supply chain, making it more efficient, and reduces reliance on overseas component suppliers, thereby reducing its carbon footprint. Working with greener, non-volatile organic compounds, Fabrican’s spray-on fabric technology uses no ozone-depleting substances. Fabrican primarily uses recycled fibres, and can also utilise biodegradable fibres and binders.
Consumers can purchase goods made with Fabrican in the knowledge that spray-on fabric technology supports each element of the repair, reuse, recycle philosophy:
- Spray-on coatings can be used to repair and refresh damaged or worn materials in the home, extending product life.
- With suitable production facilities (to capture and re-condense solvents), manufacturers can re-use all components of Fabrican, liquid and solid, reducing consumption of raw materials, energy demand, and waste.
- The chemistry that creates solid materials from a liquid suspension means that at the end of their useful life, sprayed fabrics can be re-dissolved and sprayed anew.
- Lower capital requirement promotes local production, reducing both reliance on overseas suppliers and carbon emissions from heavily polluting container shipping.
