Techtextil 2019 is kicking off in Frankfurt am Main

From 14 to 17 May 2019, Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, will take place in Germany.

Dual trade fairs, Techtextil and Texprocess will get inside into advanced products, processing technologies and textile recycling solutions.

At the same time, Texprocess, the specialized international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials will be held.

Techtextil covers full range of technical textiles and composites applications:

  • construction and architecture;
  • infrastructure;
  • aerospace;
  • automotive;
  • sports and recreation;
  • hazard protection;
  • medicine;
  • shipbuilding.

At Texprocess, international exhibitors will present:

  • the latest machines;
  • plants;
  • processes and services for the manufacture of textile and flexible materials;
  • information technology and logistics processes.

Synergy of Techtextil and Texprocess enables participants to penetrate into entire textile value chain, from fibers, fabric and composites to recycling technologies.

Special events:

“Urban Living – City of the Future” — examples of textile application in the context of growing urbanization.

“Sustainability at Techtextil” — Techtextil turns its focus for the first time onto its exhibitors approaches to sustainability, including a series of contributions devoted exclusively to sustainable textile innovations. Two firms will be awarded Techtextil Innovation Award in the sustainability category.

Techtextil Forum — expert lectures and discussion formats for interactive exchange of ideas and information between participants and attendees, researchers, developers and users.

“Textile Structures for New Building” — 15th competition for students and young specialists. It is supported by the international network TensiNet as sponsor, the Institute for Lightweight Structures and Conceptual Design at the University of Stuttgart, and the architecture and design platform Architonic.

Basalt fiber has great potential for the textile industry as feed stock for woven and non-woven materials used in a wide range of applications in construction, engineering, fire protection and agricultural technologies due to its chemical and thermal resistant properties, durability and recyclability. It would be interesting to learn what innovative materials developer will bring basalt fiber based solutions to the trade show.
