Characterization and performance of textile products for civil engineering
The construction and architecture sector has made increasing use of technical textiles whose mechanical properties are the same as or often better than those of traditional materials. Textile materials offer attractive characteristics such as lightness and resilience, as well as resistance to deformation and deterioration due to the shrinkage of concrete and cement.
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.
