Characterization and performance of textile products for the transport industry
The use of textiles by the transportation industry is expanding. The main applications are hoses, safety belts, filters, floor linings, and ropes. This segment offers opportunities for the increasing use of textiles that offer interesting performance and processing characteristics. Composite fibers used as inner lining and padding is an example of an application in the transportation industry.
The materials used in these applications require specific physicochemical characteristics for which IPT offers characterization tests and performance evaluations based on national and international standards to verify compliance to required specifications. In the absence of applicable technical standards, methodologies can be developed based on studies of the client’s specific needs and subject to his agreement.
