Manufacturing & Technical Capabilities

Processing - Take advantage of the Industry’s most advanced and successful nonwoven:

  • Web Forming - air laid and carded crossed laid
  • Construction - chemical bond, felted wool, needlepunch, thermo-bond, and composites

Finishing and Post Processing - offering a full range of finishing options and in-house post-processing enhancements:

  • Chemical Enhancement – top-coat, saturate, wash and dye
  • Mechanical Enhancement - press, calendar, glaze, singe and laminate (composite, adhesive, web, pressure sensitive film)
  • Customized Processing - slitting, die-cut shapes, special kit assembly, molded acoustic panels, tow (finish treatment) and cut (to requirements) special packaging as required

Research and Development - Scaled equipment replicating production equipment and stringent quality control ensures successful product launches. We also offer engineered designed fabric support for those applications in the Ballistic Protection and Containment product category.

Specialized testing:

  • FAR25-853-A&B (vertical burn)
  • FAR25-856-A (radiant panel compliant)
  • Forced loading capability (drop tower)
  • B&K Impedance Tube Acoustical Analysis
  • Thermal Conductivity

Quality Control. Our controlled environment conditioning room ensures optimum quality.
