Woven belts and tapes are used in wide area of technical applications and as reinforcement for composites. Contrary to the art design of the woven fabrics, where the colour and pattern appearance is more important than the mechanical parameters, in the technical products the strength, stiffness, compressibility and other mechanical properties have the importance.
