TECHTEXTIL 2017 REVIEW

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR VISIT AT OUR BOOTH D21 IN HALL 4.1


Record-breaking 47.500 visitors and more from 114 countries visited Techtextil from May 9-12 in Frankfurt, attracted from 1.789 exhibitors showing the latest developments and innovative products for technical textiles. „The textile industry presented itself as a dynamic high-tech industry“, this was the assessment by Messe Frankfurt.

 

Among the exhibitors at the forefront, PHP Fibers presented besides its broad and innovative portfolio including yarns based on bio-polymer, the new Enka® TecTape Hybrid Roving. The fair showed that the development of new reinforcement fabrics for composites is actually an important driver for the technical textiles industry, it was said. The new composite made of nylon and glass is one proof for this statement; the new material could replace steel or even carbon fiber in various applications that require both strength and lightness at a fraction of the cost of other materials. Accordingly, with an eye on light weighting modern vehicles, the model of our Hy:Ro Bike -based on Enka® TecTape material- attracted a lot of visitors and obtained extensive, far-reaching attention from press and professional visitors.  

 

“Techtextil is the platform of choice to present our ideas and innovations, but also to keep informed about latest trends in technical textiles and technologies. I also appreciate to deepen our network and cooperation with existing partners and meet new players from industry or the research side”, added Volker Siejak, Business Director from PHP Fibers.

 

We thank all the customers, partners and visitors for visiting us at our booth on the Techtextil 2017. We hope you enjoyed your visit and our hospitality. For any further questions or feedback please approach your contact person at PHP Fibers or our PR department (communication@php-fibers.com).

 

We are looking forward to your visit at next Techtextil in Frankfurt which will be held from 14 to 17 May 2019.
