A Technical textile is a textile product manufactured for non-aesthetic purposes, where function is the primary criterion.
It is a large and growing sector and supports a vast array of other industries.
Technical textiles include textiles for automotive applications, medical textiles (e.g., implants), geotextiles (reinforcement of embankments), agrotextiles (textiles for crop protection), and protective clothing (e.g., heat and radiation protection for fire fighter clothing, molten metal protection for welders, stab protection and bulletproof vests, and spacesuits).
Over all, global growth rates of technical textiles are about 4% per year greater than the growth of home and apparel textiles, which are growing at a rate of 1% per year.
In present market opportunities and in free quota system the importance of technical textile materials is increasing to accommodate the needs of requirement. Nowadays the most widely technical textile materials are used in filter clothing, furniture, hygiene medicals and construction material
Nowadays it can be found in the market, technical fabrics which protect of:
high temperatures (insulating, firefighters)
burns (flame, convective and radiant heat, firefighters, ATEX area)
electric arc flash discharge (plasma explosion, Electric companies)
molten metal impacts (foundries)
metal sparks (welding)
acid environment (petrochemical, gas, refineries, chemical)
bullet impact (military, security)
cut resistant (gloves, glass industry)
These fabrics are made of different kind of fibers, because every blend apports different technical characteristics to the fabric:
Meta-Para aramides – Nomex: high resistance, tear, tensile strength, expensive,
Wool viscoses polyamide – marlan : repelency of molten metal, heat insulation, transparency.
Glass fiber - High resistance, insulating.
Modacrylic cotton – Marko wiki: Marko : electric arc flash protection, comfort, flame-resistant,
multinorm, efficient, skin friendly, antistatic.
Polyamide – Kevlar : extreme resistance, low aging
We can offer all variations in Fibre glass,Carbon Kevlar,Aramid Nomex, Hybrid blends composites etc
