Coatings & main properties
Light to medium weight coatings applied directly on to the fabric substrate and predominantly polyurethanes, polyacrylates, silicone elastomers and liquid silicone rubbers. The main technical performance properties include, waterproofness, breathability, weldability (HF & RF), gas holding (Helium & Hydrogen), flame retardance, fire resistance, coating release, as well as anti-fray, antistatic, biocidal, fungicidal and UV resistance.
Heavier weight, high performance thermoplastic extrusion polymer coatings are also offered, normally of polyurethane (TPU), Polyethylene (TPE) and Polypropylene (TPP). These coatings provide high technical performance in terms of properties such as, resistance to water penetration, liquid barrier, gas holding (Helium), weldability (HF & RF), solvent resistance, petroleum fuel resistance and resistance to hydrolysis.
