Nearly all things can be made or improved upon using technical textiles. Many different applications made from technical textiles have become part of our everyday lives: tarpaulins, tents, hot-air balloons, sport mats, shade sails and even entire stadium roofing structures are made of finely woven and innovatively coated materials. Oil barriers are put to use in disaster control and environmental protection. Wildfires are fought via fabric water containers filled with fire extinguishing fluids.
“With our technical textiles we cover a very broad spectrum in the true sense of the word“, says Dr. Heribert Decher, CEO of the international Heytex Group, which specializes on problem solving with functional technical textiles and large format printable sign media. “But the possibilities for industrial applications are nearly unlimited.”
For such industrial applications, Heytex created the formula “Textile + Engineering = Texineering®.” Heytex has established the “Family of Fabrics“ and welcomes American colleagues from BondCote, Pulaski, Va., as a new member of the group as of January 2015. BondCote concentrates on military and civil applications.
The Heytex Group will now be present in four locations on three continents and present itself for the first time together with BondCote to the industry at Techtextil in May. “Discover the many faces of fabric” is the slogan that the “Family of Fabric” will present in Frankfurt in a virtual and tangible way.
