Automotive and transports widely use fabrics made of advanced fibers.
The most widespread and suitable ones are made in carbon or carbon/aramid fibers (hybrids).
Carbon fiber fabrics combine excellent mechanical properties and light weight.
Hybrid fabrics, offer multiple advantages, thanks to the synergistic combination of different fibers.
In the energy sector, high-tech fabrics give the appropriate solution to the binding requirements of lightness and performance.
FTS carbon and glass special fabrics are recommended for electrical insulating laminates and renewable energy applications (solar panels and wind-turbine blades).
The industrial sector can rely on specific technical fabrics to comply with its stringent requirements.
FTS wide fabrics range is the proper response in terms of performance and price point.
Our industrial fabrics are available in HT polyester, polyamide 6/6.6, carbon, aramid, glass and ring cotton.
Boat-building yards need to face complex requirements and mantain a consistent technological evolution.
The most important features are: light weight, directional strengthening, ease of impregnation and extensive workability of the materials.
FTS weaves dedicated unidirectional or orthogonal carbon fabrics (over 400 g/m²), aramid products (high impact resistance) and glass roving fabrics for utmost efficiency in terms of time and cost.
Aerospace industry is constantly searching for innovative solutions that could provide maximum safety, reliability, structural advantages for top performances.
The materials must be light (for fuel consumption savings) and able to withstand physical stress and extreme environmental conditions.
For these applications, FTS produces fabrics in carbon fiber (excellent ratio between mechanical properties and light weight) in different weights and unidirectional fabrics (carbon or fiberglass).
Fabrics for helmets or motorsport applications must guarantee a good workability as well as lightness and high kinetic energy absorption of the final product.
FTS offers a wide range of UD, hybrid and plain fabrics in aramide or carbon fiber, dry or pre-preg, highly suitable for an easy dinking and moulding.
The sports equipment sector is facing a continuous technological development and a strong market growth.
Specific products made with advanced fabrics are widely used in disciplines such as cycling, rowing, kayak, sailing and windsurfing, skying, tennis, fishing, hiking, etc.
High-tech fabrics provide benefits in terms of lightness, high resistance and aesthetic results: a winning choice for manufacturers of sports equipment.
The most suitable fabrics are made of carbon fiber or hybrids with glass and aramid fiber.
