Fiber based materials for construction are in a continuous development. Due to the progress in polymer science and knowledge in process engineering important properties can be improved continuously or sometimes in great steps.
ITV Denkendorf in the south of Germany, close to Stuttgart, is here in charge for improvements, testing and for the development of new materials. A comprehensive industrial and scientific network with competent partners is the best base. In this chapter some examples are given from successful material developments in the research fields of fiber spinning, textile formation, coating, testing and numerical simulation with improved material properties for construction applications like: reduced ageing by new coating processes; selfcleaning surfaces based on bionic knowledge; barrier functions against heat, sound, temperatures, electromagnetic waves.
Special materials for new applications are in the field of smart materials, renewable energies, lightweight for mobile applications.
