May 14 – 17, 2019
Manufacturers, users, and processors will meet together at the internationally leading trade fair for technical textiles and nonwoven fabrics to network and engage in dialog about new products and applications.
The DEKRA Laboratory for Technical Textiles and Films is a recognized, accredited, and independent testing laboratory with more than three decades of leading expertise in the field of membrane structure. It supports manufacturers and planners in the field of technical textiles in the development of project-specific measuring methods, testing facilities, and quality assurance as well as construction firms in the subsequent use of the products.
