THE SPREAD OF TECHNICAL TEXTILES
Textiles are ubiquitous in the modern world, but they offer so much more than conventional and historic applications.
"Technical textiles represent a high level of product innovation, including cutting-edge processing technologies resulting in products that provide essential protection and performance in a very broad variety of settings, across different sectors"
These textiles serve a broad range of markets for industrial fabrics, such as safety belts, harnesses and airbags, but also industrial and electrical conveyor belts, medical technology and geo textiles.
"Even well-established applications for textiles, such as ropes and sails in transport, have now entered a more technically advanced age. In fact, Harding Yarns began life winding silk for parachutes, whereas now we supply specialist industrial yarns to a diverse selection of customers."
