Smart solutions for the highest demands
The unique conditions prevalent in the automotive industry place high – and sometimes conflicting – demands on spacer fabrics and technical textiles. One challenge, for instance, is avoiding wrinkles and cavity formation on vehicle seats. At the same time, the specification sheet demands comfortable haptic qualities and a soft touch feel. With leather seats, another frequent requirement is stabilization for the supple leather. Furthermore, even air distribution in all directions, even under load, must be ensured. Another example of a safety-critical component is the airbag. In case of a collision, a textile with a flexible predetermined breaking point must make space for the airbag within fractions of a second without preventing it from unfolding. These examples are just some of the challenges we are successfully mastering every day with our technical textiles.
