  2. 2. Technical Textile The Textile Institute defines technical textiles as the textilematerials and products manufactured primarily for their technicaland performance properties rather than their aesthetic or decorativecharacteristics .Technical Textiles has never been a single consistent industrialsector and market segment as it is continuously developing indifferent directions with varying speed and varying degree ofsuccess. The development of emerging geographical markets inChina(Chinese textile) and other global industrial regions activelycontributes in influencing the rapid growth of technical textilemanufacturing in this century.The term Industrial textile(link) was widely used for years to referto any sort of textile product other than apparels, household orfurnishing products. With the increasing textile application in thediverging fields of medicine, hygiene, sports, transport, agricultureand other non industrial purposes. Industrial textiles arecategorized as a sub group of technical textiles and it speciallycomprises of those particular textile products which are utilized inthe operational procedure of manufacturing.Technical and industrial textiles relate both to kinds ofproducts and to the application of textiles to particular uses.Examples of technical textiles products are high tenacity yarns,or special elastic or coated fabrics, all of which have hightechnology content. As far as industrial applications areconcerned, textile-based articles can offer considerableperformance advantages compared to other materials.The sector of technical textile has experienced a spectacularincrease during last years. Technical textiles consumption hasincreased worldwide by about 20% in volume, between 2000 and2005. Cars and the transport industry, furniture, medical
  3. 3. applications, clothing and construction are important users oftechnical and industrial textiles.Given that innovation in new materials, processes and products isan inherent feature of this sub-sector, expenditure on research anddevelopment (R&D) is higher in this field than for conventionaltextiles (reaching up to 8-10% of turnover, compared to theindustrial average of 3-5%). In the development of fibres, yarnsand fabrics, functional aspects - such as anti-bacterial, anti-static,UV protective, thermal, or biodegradable functions - are playing anincreasingly important role. Performance requirements andtechnical specifications determine the success of a product.Usually, technical textiles are created in a close relationshipbetween the producer and the consumer so as to ensure tailor-madesolutions to specific user purposes.Technical textiles are usually applied in thefollowing 12 main areas: o Agrotech comprises of agriculture, horticulture, aquaculture and forestry o Buildtech comprises of building and construction o Clothtech comprises of technical components of footwear and clothing. o Geotech comprises of technical components of geotextiles and civil engineering o Hometech comprises of technical components of furniture, household textiles and floor coverings. o Indutech comprises of filtration, conveying, cleaning and other industrial uses o Medtech comprises of medical field and hygiene o Mobiltech comprises of automobiles, shipping, railways and aerospace o Oekotech comprises of environmental protection
  4. 4. o Packtech comprises of packaging o Protech comprises of personal and property protection o Sporttech comprises of sports and leisureTechnical textiles in various contexts are often referred to asperformance textiles or functional textiles or engineered textiles orhigh-tech textiles. Technical Textile fiber:Almost 90 % of the fibers(link to textile fabric) utilized to maketechnical textiles belong to the category of conventional fibers andthe fibers specially developed to specifically use in technicaltextiles are not only expensive but often have limited applications. Technical Textile products:Within the composites industry, woven, knitted braided, nonwoven(link) and wound reinforcements produced from glass,carbon fiber and organic polymer materials like aramids arepresently accepted as technical textile products.Some fields of application for technical textiles: SECTOR EXAMPLES MARKETS Construction companies for Linings, netting, roads, water insulation, Earthworks engineering, soil artificial grass stabilisation, tunnels ("geotextiles") and other earthworks
