Textile and materials research has a long tradition within TITK. The central subject of the work in this area is the characterization, processing and application of fiber materials.
In the past, the focus of developments was on applications in the clothing industry. Today, the focus is primarily on technical applications of textile semi-finished products, textile laminates, fiber-reinforced rubber/elastomers and fiber composites. Closely related to this are also developments in the field of materials testing.
The Textile and Materials Research department is able to combine tradition, expertise and innovation for the benefit of customers and is today a research service provider with state-of-the-art technology to meet the needs of industry. The principle here is that materials, process and technology developments basically form a single unit.
