Texlon applies water-based coatings using two processes: Pad Coating (fabric is immersed in the coating and the excess is nipped/squeezed off) and Knife Coating (only the top side of the fabric is coated). Texlon stocks a wide range of coatings including urethanes, acrylics, and silicones. The coatings are often pigmented.
A heavy, heated roller crushes or “irons” the fabric against a cast nylon roller to reduce the air permeability of the fabric. This is important for sail cloth, kite fabrics, ultralight sails and filtration (water, gas and light) fabrics. Texlon operates two calenders to meet our customers’ specific air perm requirements.
