HIGH PROFESSIONAL SOLUTIONS for automotive and vehicle construction

CHT Automotive textiles

The textile share in modern automotive and vehicle industry has already been very high and is still increasing. Owing to its high flexibility and its relatively light weight, textiles and nonwovens have many application possibilities and further applications are expected to follow.

We develop individual ideas and solutions to meet customer demands specifically for automotive/transportation applications.

Functional finishes and coatings greatly increase the application possibilities of textile supports in the automotive field. Flocking offers the advantages of transferring textile surfaces onto non-textile supports. Due to their functionality, flocked parts are used in many fields such as glove compartments, storage compartments, helical cables, window profiles or coverings.

Due to the fact that very high and special demands are made on the textile and non-woven fitted parts, very detailed and in some cases demanding standards have to be fulfilled.
