We are the leading manufacturer of Electrical and thermal insulating sleevings, Mechanical protection and noise reduction covers, EMI and heat reflective protective components and Asbestos free heat resistant seals.

The company was founded in 1957 in Caldes de Montbui (Barcelona) by Vicenç Relats Arimon and over twenty years the company has produced conventional fabric for various industrial applications. In the early 70′s as a result of the relationship with manufacturers of electrical insulators and enamelled copper wire, we felt the need to manufacture fiberglass braid. This was the beginning of our current core business and specialty. Relats designs and produces a range of products with textile substrate systems for engines, brakes, push pull cables, rubber hoses and metal, among many others. With a presence in four of the five continents across five manufacturing plants (in Catalonia, the United Kingdom, China, Mexico and Morocco) Relats group work with companies that supply the main components of global brands in the industry automotive, aerospace, railway, electricity sector and appliances that have approved our products. Always attentive to develop new solutions to new markets through continuous research and technological innovation, we have achieved numerous quality certifications such as ISO9001 for manufacturing industry, ISO / TS for the automotive sector and the EN9100 total quality system for the aerospace industry.
