Custom fabric treatments

The versatile material for unique applications

Thanks to the use of a wide range of material combinations, coatings and colours, our fabric can be tailored individually to your future application scenario.

In this way, the right combination of properties to meet your requirements can be found for every conceivable application.

Ausruestung FC Fluorcarbon SR Webatex

FC – fluorocarbon treatment

An FC treatment gives the fabric hydrophobic properties, i.e. repellent to moisture, soiling and oil.

Ausruestung Flammhemmende Ausruestung SR Webatex

FR – flame-retardant treatment

Here, various substances are used to treat the outer surface of the fabric material to make it flame-retardant. The method used here is a dip-coating technique or the Foulard process.

Ausruestung Infrarot SR Webatex

IRR – Infrared remission

By incorporating IR particles into the dye, the remission spectrum is altered so that the fabric treated becomes very hard to detect with night-sight cameras or is rendered effectively invisible. With some colours, a pigment printing stage is also necessary.

Ausruestung Polyurethan SR Webatex

PU – Polyurethane

Polyurethane is used for compact, waterproof coatings, as well as micropore and pore-less coatings. PU-treated polyamides or polyesters are waterproof and windproof, and resistant to wear and cold temperatures.

Ausruestung Polyurethan Beschichtung SR Webatex

FR PU – Flame-retardant polyurethane coating

A polyurethane-based coating that incorporates flame-retardant substances to reduce combustibility.

Ausruestung Synthesekautschuk SR Webatex

Synthetic rubber

The term “synthetic rubber” refers to elastic polymers used to make rubber materials. This kind of coating offers good flame protection coupled with high wear resistance.

Ausruestung Vektorenschutz SR Webatex

Vector protection

Protection against all kinds of vectors (i.e. insects, in the sense of vector-borne diseases). The active ingredient permethrin acts as a neurotoxin, hindering insects from landing or feeding.

Ausruestung PVC Beschichtung SR Webatex

PVC coating

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is not water-absorbent and is resistant to acids, bases, alcohols, oils and petroleum. It stops burning rapidly in the absence of a flame. Unlike other engineering plastics such as polyethylene or polypropylene, the high chlorine content of PVC gives it excellent flame-resistant properties.

Ausruestung Silikon-Finish SR Webatex

Silicone finishing

Here, the fabric is coated with a very thin film of silicone. This is an important step for parachutes, so as to reduce friction when the parachute is opened in the air.

Ausruestung Bioactive SR Webatex

Bioactive

Silver ions are incorporated into the fabric to give it antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of bacteria. The ions are biocompatible, and reduce microbial odour development in/on textiles to improve textile hygiene.
