Korteks, as Europe’s largest integrated and innovative polyester yarn manufacturer and exporter, continues to contribute to polyester-related development studies in international textile markets and to develop innovative technical textile products thanks to its position abroad.

Korteks has developed a special product that will meet the needs of the wind energy sector in line with these endeavors on advanced technical textile fabrics. With this study, the company produced technical polyester yarn, which is used in multi-layer fabrics where composite materials are utilized in the wings of turbines that produce electricity through wind energy.

‘‘Developed need-oriented, however, became a global supplier’’

Thanks to this product, which was developed completely for the needs and requirements of the wind energy sector, Korteks became the global supplier of the largest company producing this type of fabric in the world. In most of the wind turbines operating in the world, Korteks yarns spin with the wind and contribute to the cleanliness of the world.

Korteks continues to be an innovative business partner for global giants with its own brand and products through its product variety, experience, and product quality. The Group develops products in all of the three main trends in technical textiles: ‘‘Circular economy, recycling’’, ‘‘Conductive textile surfaces’’ and ‘‘Carbon weaving-composite technologies’’. Korteks, one of the Zorlu Textile group companies, also continues many R&D projects for composite materials, which are getting more and more significant in terms of lightness, durability, and most importantly, economy. The company continues its research on developing hybrid yarn using its own polyester yarn and the areas of use of composite materials to be produced with these yarns.
