INNOVATIVE TECHNICAL TEXTILES

DIATEX SAS is a company specialized in technical fabrics manufacturing, certified EN9100 for the aeronautical market since 2005, and Oeko-Tex human-ecological safety since 2012; as well as in the processing techniques of composite materials.

For 30 years, the company, based near Lyon, at the heart of a heavily chemical and textile industrial area, has been thinking, innovating and manufacturing its specific fabrics in its Drômoise factory, therefore positioning itself on niche markets from the high technology sector, such as aeronautics, wind energy, events, PPE, or Filtration.

The group, located on 2 sites in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, covers 11,000 m² and employs about sixty people.

4 CORE BUSINESSES

The company, rapidly expanding, is organized around 4 divisions: Light Aircraft, Composites, Advanced Textiles and Agro-textiles. The synergy of these 4 clusters is a significant asset for creativity and innovation and allows DIATEX to provide a complete answer to an ever-growing and diversified panel of professionals.

  • The Light Aircraft division offers a broad range of products, which includes structural fabrics, engineering paints and equipment for light aircraft: a complete range of coverings and coatings.

  • In the Agro-textiles division, Diatex fabrics are used mainly for research and developments purposes. The division also offers a complete range of harvest, shade, insect and windbreak netting. Finally, our garment factory makes any custom-made prototype, per unit or in large series.

  • The Engineering Fabrics division supplies technical fabrics for filtration and other industrial purposes, for personal protection, as well as the events sector.

  • The Composite division offers all products and ancillaries related to vacuum processing technology for Composites Materials via manufacturing techniques such as vacuum moulding, vacuum infusion, RTM and RTM Light.
