The majority of textiles used to reinforce composites are still woven, even today. Materials such as fibreglass, natural fibres, aramid or carbon fibres are processed here. Of the so-called fibrous materials, carbon fibres possess the greatest potential for lightweight construction due to their property profile. For this reason their application, embedded in plastics - usually epoxy resins (CFK) - has also become increasingly interesting for the automotive industry.

What are the names of the technologies employed, and what criteria have to be taken into consideration? The following article answers these questions and many more.Click here for more information

The "Trail 2011" was a charity walk initiated by Mr. Sarinda Unamboowe, CEO of MAS Linea Aqua. It ran from Dondra Lighthouse, the southernmost point of Sri Lanka, to Point Pedro, the island's northernmost point, and lasted from July 1 to 27, 2011. As a partner of MAS and a socially responsible company, it was a matter of course and also highly enjoyable for Groz-Beckert to take part in the charity walk and support the project.Click here for more information
