Textile technologies

In a woven structure like an impact weft, a transversal cord of between 0.6mm and 7 mm is wound above or below longitudinal cords on Bekaert machines and then bound. An impact weft provides flexibility and strength.
A more complex weave, straight warp, takes transversal cords and crosses them with longitudinal cords. A binder then holds them together. The result is both flexibility and strength.
Knitting and braiding are technologies that are applied.
Textiles products are used  to reinforce conveyor belts, or to produce high temperature resistant applications.
