Textiles & Coatings
Silicone offers extreme performance to a selection of engineering fabrics including glass cloth, Nomex, Kevlar, nylon and polyester. Coating these fabrics improves the 'haad' and feel of the base material, reduces the porosity and provides resistance to heat and abrasion. By mechanically bonding the materials in a matrix, the coated fabrics benefit greatly from the synergy of the resin and substrate working together.
EVA hot melt adhesives are used to bond various textiles in the furniture and bedding industry. From fast curing hot melts for beading onto textile trims in the window blinds industry, securing leathers on furniture, positioning foams whilst covers are assembled to long open time spray hot melts for foams and toppers in the mattress industry.
