Short description of advertisement: 
Austrian company is looking for joining techniques to bond foam or natural rubber with wood.

An Austrian company is developing a yoga mat with wood applications. The mat consists of a basic material on which the wood is applied. The basic material of the mat is foam or natural rubber. The company is looking for a solution to fuse or bond the two materials. Partners from industry or academia are sought under commercial agreement with technical assistance or technical cooperation.  

The Austrian company is active in the field of wood processing and design. The small enterprise located in Tirol develops a yoga mat with wood application. The special odours of Swiss stone pine wood are intended to enhance the health effect of yoga and sport activities. 

In order to connect both materials, wood with the underlay mats, they are looking for partners that can offer a proper solution. The company is looking for an innovative process that guarantees a durable bond between the foam/rubber and wood materials. Solutions which combine the two materials with a special glue are also welcome.   

The mats are used for yoga and sports, therefore the glue or fusion process should be contaminant free, elastic, sustainable, waterproof, heat resistant and odorless.

They are looking for partners from industry or academia that could offer a solution under commercial agreement with technical assistance or technical cooperation.
