Contitech will be presenting itself as a competent development partner for coated fabrics. A new dry suit material offers maximum protection in and under water. The coated fabric, which features a new surface structure, is extremely lightweight and elastic but also extremely dense. Another new addition is an innovative life raft material. This lightweight, robust, and weatherproof material makes it ideal for not only floats but also flexible buoyancy tubes and other flexible constructions such as tent substructures. The company is also developing a new fabric for rigid-inflatable boats (RIBs).

With their special exterior and interior coating as well as a reinforcing agent made from high-strength, high-tenacity polyester, these tried-and-tested boat materials are perfect for use under the most extreme conditions. Another innovation in the field of high-quality footwear material for the outdoor and hiking segment is Ceraprene. This highly resistant, water-repellent and watertight elastomer-based material offers optimum wear comfort and is ideal for safety shoes, soccer boots, and tennis shoes. The material is extremely durable, and boasts minimal wear. CeraPrene also remains highly flexible even at very low temperatures. ContiTech’s elastomer-coated materials for protective suits also fulfill U.S. fire safety standards (NFPA). Other key benefits are reliable protection against acids, alkalis, and aggressive chemicals and gases. Highly resistant, media-impermeable barrier layers help to keep out harmful substances.
