Pennel & Flipo invests annually in Research and Development. In this perspective, we have integrated a test lab and a dedicated team of 15 engineers.

Research and Development focuses on continuous improvement of ORCA® engineered fabrics. Our priorities are mechanical and chemical resistance, lightness, color resistance and environmental protection (in design production, use and disposal of ORCA® fabrics) are our priorities.

Our Research and Development is based on our areas of expertise:


• the formulation of polymer blends

• the design of textile backing

• the bonding of polymers onto textile


These efforts in Research and Development guarantee ORCA® engineered fabrics :
