Propex Fabrics GmbH & Co. KG, located in Gronau, Germany, is a subsidiary of Propex Operating Company, LLC headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA. They manufacture carpet backing, geotextiles, and Curv composite material.
Curv Composite Technology represents the first self-reinforced, 100% thermoplastic composite manufacturing process. Curv is self-reinforced because it is comprised of high-performance thermoplastic fibres set in a matrix, or pattern, of exactly the same material. It combines the versatility and recyclability of a 100% thermoplastic composite material with the high performance of a fibre reinforced composite. Also, Curv is used as a skin-like material in lightweight sandwich structures and can be combined with materials such as aluminium, glass, aramide and even carbon fibre.
