Fabrics for helmets and motorsport components must guarantee easy moldability during production as well as lightness and kinetic energy absorption of the final product. FTS offers a wide range of UD fabrics, hybrid/mere aramidic or pre-preg carbon fabrics, highly suitable for moulding and dinking.
The most important features are light weight, directional strengthening, easy impregnation and extensive workability.
FTS weaves dedicated aramid fabrics providing high impact resistance, carbon fabrics (over 400 g/m²) or glass roving for utmost advantage in terms of cost.
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 nice aesthetic results: a winning choice for manufacturers of sport equipments.
The most suitable fabrics for sports equipment are made of carbon fiber or hybrids with glass and aramid fiber.
The industrial sector can rely on technical and advanced fabrics in order to respond to specific requirements.
FTS’ wide fabrics range guarantees an excellent response in terms of performance and price point.
Our industrial fabrics’ content is HT polyester, polyamide 6 and 6.6, glass, carbon, aramid or ring cotton.
The ground transportation and automotive sectors widely use fabrics made with advanced fibers. The most widespread and suitable fabrics are made in carbon fiber and carbon/aramid hybrid fabrics.
The fabrics in carbon combine excellent mechanical properties and light weight.
The hybrid fabrics, thanks to the combination of two fibers (carbon and aramid), offer a double advantage: reducing the fragility of the bare carbon fiber and providing a better aesthetic appearance (interesting chromatic geometries and a pleasing weave).
