Covering fabrics




DIATEX covering fabrics are among the most efficient in the market.
They are manufactured from high strength shrinkable polyester yarn, in our mill and processed on our textile finishing site.
These fabrics are all 100% polyester, heat shrinkable from 100°C (approximately 15%).


CAUTION : Before any covering, the user should make sure that he complies with the aircraft manufacturer’s documentation (service bulletins, material specifications, etc.), to ensure the correct choice of the fabric according to the requirements of the techniques used.
