What are the requirements for automotive textiles?
On November 19, a group of interested textile experts met at imat-uve's materials testing laboratory. At a professional seminar held by the Textilakademie NRW- Weiterbildung GmbH in Mönchengladbach, Germany, under the expert guidance of Eveline Weber, who until recently worked for Opel as Lead Engineer for many years, the participants received an introduction to special properties and requirements of fabrics for automotive purposes. In the practical part imat-uve's specialists explained the different test methods directly at the devices and put them into the context of the valid standards.
imat-uve carries out numerous tests such as Martindale or Mace Snag for automotive companies and, with its know-how in the development and testing of textiles, is a recognized expert in the industry. The Textilakademie NRW – Weiterbildung GmbH has set itself the task not only of ensuring the next generation of qualified specialist personnel for the textile and apparel industry, but also of training specialists with the most modern means.
