There is a particularly high demand for warp-knitted geotextiles in India. These stable textiles are being used, for example, for reinforcing slopes in road building projects, for stabilising waterway banks in coastal engineering projects, and for covering landfill sites. Other lucrative applications include printed advertising media and lorry tarpaulins. This Sales Manager is expecting to receive many enquires from the wind turbine sector. “Multiaxial textiles produced from glass on multiaxial warp knitting machines are mainly being used to produce the rotor blades. A number of promising projects are already running on this particular application in India,” explains Hagen Lotzmann.
