High-tech fibres for cars and aircraft


Manufacturers of cars and aircraft are committed to the use of fibre reinforced plastics. The common denominator here is technical textiles, with fibres made from carbon, aramid, glass and sustainable raw materials providing the backbone for many duroplastic and thermoplastic materials.
