Ceramic Components Made by Textile Technology from Inorganic Fibres
Textiles are no longer available just in their customary forms, but also with special functional properties and in combination with various other materials. This opens up a broad range of opportunities for quantum leaps in completely new products. Such technical textiles are primarily used in the automotive industry, aerospace, road construction, garden and landscaping, sports and leisure, medical, environmental, furnaces and safety technology. The trend in technical textiles is towards cost and weight reduction as well as energy-saving and sustainability. Particular interest is currently focused on fibre-reinforced composites and textile-based electronics.
