Technical braids in textile engineering

Technical braids from the field of textile engineering are virtually omnipresent in our everyday lives.

The scope of application of the textile technical braids is nearly unlimited. Technical braids can be produced in a flat or round shape. Braided into a seamless tube, the round braid can be used for a vast range of purposes:

  • Mechanic protection
  • Bundling
  • Flame retardation
  • Elasticity
  • Sealing
  • Packaging
  • Isolation
  • Thermal protection
  • Tensile strength
  • Shrinking
  • Burning
  • Lifting and pulling

Do you need a technical braid for a specific purpose? Our development team will be happy to work with you and create a custom solution to meet your individual requirements.

The Wedo wick-configurator

To ensure the best possible burning results, the wick must be well adapted to the candle system in question. Our wick-configurator allows you to easily define key candle parameters – it then automatically lists a number of suitable wicks for testing.

Wick positions

Ideal wick position: The wick protrudes from the candle in a straight line and bends towards the flame boundary, entering the “glow zone”, where it burns fully at the highest temperature under the influence of oxygen.

Temperature distribution

The flame of a candle is separated into different glowing and temperature areas, which are easily visible to the naked eye: (1) Candle (2) Wick (3) Blue zone: Usually outside of the luminous zone Hottest zone due to oxygen contact
