Techtex

Application

In the case of technical textiles, it is not only their visual appeal that counts but above all their function. When worn as protective clothing or processed into a tent, textile products are often exposed to extreme conditions such as heat, moisture or high tensile forces. Like the fabrics, the sewing threads used here must also be extremely robust and guarantee safety.

High-tech threads for high performance and safety

When textiles take on a safety-relevant task, it is important that they not only meet the legal requirements, specifications and guidelines but that they are also of reliable quality. This naturally also applies to all yarns and threads used in such tasks. With our product portfolio we deliver solutions for any application, however complex, and guarantee our customers the best possible product quality in compliance with all specifications.

Protective clothing

Fire, projectiles or chemicals: For some professions, special protective clothing is not just a must. To protect the wearers from injuries when carrying out their tasks, the functional textiles must withstand extreme external influences. Our product range offers a suitable sewing thread for each of these demanding fields of application.

Outdoor textiles

Nothing is as volatile as the weather. Outdoor textiles are directly exposed to changing weather conditions and must offer reliable protection in both heat and moisture – if possible over many years. Whether for awnings or tents: The robust sewing threads from our diverse range withstand wind and weather and are ideally suited for outdoor use.

Lifting and restraint systems

They play an important role in transport and hold together what belongs together: Hoisting and restraining slings straps are subject to high tensile forces and wear in the packing and transporting of goods. High-performance textiles must be sewn safely so that they do what they promise - our special sewing threads provide the necessary resistance.

Composites

Composite materials such as carbon and glass fibre fabrics set the trend for the mobility and energy supply of tomorrow. These lightweight and extremely durable materials are used in the automotive, aircraft and shipbuilding industries, in trains and space technology as well as in wind turbines, for example. A special embroidery process – and our specially developed threads – are required to ensure that the advantages of lightweight components are fully exploited.

Conductive textiles

The requirements placed on the materials are as diverse as the fields of application for conductive textiles. While they provide important vital data for monitoring a person’s health via direct contact with the skin in the medical field, for example, Smart Yarns can ensure the optimal temperature when used as heating or cooling elements in work clothes or cars. Not only can conductive yarns be embroidered or sewn – woven together they are also suitable for flat applications.

Filters

Textile filters have to fulfil the most varied chemical resistance requirements depending on method and on filtrate (wet or dry filtration, hot-gas or liquid-gas filtration).

Our sewing thread recommendation for machining filters is PP-tech.
