LunaMicro AB, a deep tech start-up specialising in smart textiles, has entered into a cooperation agreement with TST-Sweden, the world-leading developer of protective clothing and equipment.
LunaMicro and TST-Sweden will, together, develop, test, and eventually launch a state-of-the-art protective garment for high-pressure cleaning with the next generation of LunaMicro’s active moisture management. LunaMicro’s patented product is a soft flexible fabric pump which moves liquid water from one side of the fabric to the other when connected to a small battery. A strategically-placed A4-sized "patch" of active pumping textile is all that’s necessary to keep the wearer dry. LunaMicro's textile pump will be integrated in a jacket in TST-Sweden ́s line of clothing for high pressure cleaning and hydraulic fluid protection, ProOperator.
– The collaboration with TST confirms the demand for new innovative solutions for moisture management in the market. We are very happy for the opportunity to work with such a strong brand in a product with technically challenging performance requirements, says Nate Robinson, CEO and founder of LunaMicro.
– What distinguishes TST is our culture of continuous innovation. We see the collaboration with LunaMicro as an opportunity to further develop our offering by combining the two companies ́ innovative products, says Catrin Tammjärv, Research & Development TST

LunaMicro AB is developing active moisture management technology for the next generation of smart textiles in clothing for sports, work and protection (PPE). Our product is a textile that pumps water from the inside to the outside of the textile with power from a small battery, allowing the user to stay warm, comfortable and safe. It also reduces the need for environmentally hazardous “forever plastics” like halogenated polymers or PFAS. Our technology is an innovation based on patented research from Linköping University.
TST is a leading company within protective clothing and equipment. TST ́s motto is "Saving Lives". They do it by improving people’s safety and performance in extremely demanding work environments, like oil platforms, alongside roads, in ports and heavy industries.
