Abstract: A survey of the principal textile sectors (excluding home and clothing textiles) represented at Techtextil, Frankfurt, 24-26 April 2001 is presented. 12 technical textile categories are identified by Messe Frankfurt and explained. Notable advances and current activities in the Fibre and Yarn, Nonwovens and Woven Textiles areas are covered. Significant fibre properties include fine fibres, flame-retardant fibres and antibacterial fibres. Strength and high performance are important areas and protection against extreme heat and flame-resistance. Electro-conductive fibre is also discussed. Fluid immobilisation in technical textiles is explained. Filtering materials and sewing threads are other diverse applications. Nonwovens covers various applications produced through different processing methods - Thermobonding, spunbonding, needlepunching, stitchbonding and ultrasonic bonding. Woven textiles include building applications, fibre scrims, geotextiles and horticultural applications.
