Our offered Product range includes Nomex Fabric, Polyester Fabrics, Nylon Fabrics, teflon fabric and kevlar fabrics.
Nomex® fiber is a member of the aramid family of fibers, and is similar in appearance to nylon. Fabrics woven of Nomex® fibers are used in applications requiring good textile properties, good dimensional stability and excellent heat resistance. They are used in coated industrial fabrics, aerospace fabrics, electrical insulation, hot-gas filter bags, protective clothing, and high temperature hoses. Fabrics woven of Nomex® fiber have a low level of flammability and do not melt or flow at high temperatures. Above 700°F (370°C), they will degrade rapidly to a friable char. At the point at which woven nylon fabrics melt (489°F, 254°C), fabrics woven of Nomex® fiber retain about 60% of their original strength. The flammability characteristics of fabrics woven of Nomex® fibers do not change with laundering. Fabrics woven of Nomex® fiber have good resistance to many chemicals and are highly resistant to most hydrocarbons and many other organic solvents. Their acid resistance is superior to woven nylon fabrics. Fabrics woven of Nomex® fibers exhibit good resistance to alkalis at room temperature, but degrade at high temperatures. Compared to woven nylon fabrics, fabrics woven of Nomex® fiber exhibit a higher resistance to beta and gamma radiation, to X-rays, and to water or steam at high temperatures. Therefore, fabrics woven of Nomex® fibers are excellent candidates for protective industrial apparel, aerospace fabrics, and substrates requiring radiation resistance. Nomex® multifilament fiber can be package dyed in many colors.
Polyester Fabrics DACRON POLYESTER FABRICS Click here to download MSDS Polyester is a very versatile fiber. Fabrics composed of polyester fiber offer the following characteristics: Generally low priced compared to those made from high temperature resistance or high modulus fibers. A wide range of fiber sizes (deniers) available for fabric development. Can be heat and chemically treated to accommodate tight specification applications. Melting point approximately 482°F (295°C). Tenacity up to 8.5 grams per denier. Quick-drying and mildew resistant. Good abrasion resistance. Polyester is more resistant to stretching and shrinking than nylon. Relatively hydrophobic, more so than nylon fabrics. Excellent retention of properties under very low temperature conditions. Resistant to degradation in acidic environments (pH

Yes, Teflon® PTFE fluoropolymer is available as a fiber, not just a film. Teflon® PTFE fiber is quite suitable for weaving into virtually any pattern imaginable. The physical properties of Teflon® PTFE fiber are superior to the properties of a PTFE film, yet a fabric woven of Teflon® PTFE fibers can be processed to simulate the surface texture of a PTFE film. Remarkably, despite the non-stick reputation of Teflon® polymer, certain fabrics woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber can be bonded to any material using common resins or glues, if suitably designed. Yet it will retain the same non-stick, non-slipstick properties that you expect from Teflon® polymer. Fabrics woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber exhibit none of the cold-flow problems of PTFE films, so they are more stable under extremes of heat and pressure. A fabric woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber exhibits higher tensile strength and abrasion resistance than a comparable PTFE film. Moreover, a fabric woven of Teflon® fiber also exhibits greater chemical and steam resistance than PTFE films. Self-lubricating bearings incorporate fabric woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber. Both the static and dynamic coefficients of friction of fabrics woven of 100% Teflon® PTFE fiber are virtually identical, allowing for the elimination of “stick-slip” behavior in self-lubrication bearing applications. Because Teflon® PTFE fibers are processed to a higher degree of molecular orientation than their resin counterparts, the stress-strain properties and resistance to cold flow of fabrics woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber are markedly improved over those of PTFE films. Fabrics woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber in resin-impregnated or composite bearings are very stable, quiet, and reliable. Because they require no lubrication, they do not contribute to equipment contamination and require less maintenance. Bearings incorporating fabrics woven of Teflon® PTFE fiber are commonly used in aerospace and automotive applications, office machines, and off-road equipment.
Kevlar® Fabrics Click here to download MSDS Aramid fiber is an aromatic polyamide, better known by the trademark, Kevlar®. Kevlar® aramid fiber is a high strength, intermediate modulus, organic fiber. Its high tenacity and low thermal shrinkage make it similar to S glass. It is inherently flame resistant and self-extinguishing, charring at 800ºF (425ºC). Fabrics woven of Kevlar® aramid fiber combine very high strenth-to-weight properties with excellent abrasion and cut resistance. They exhibit good environmental stability, retaining useful properties over a wide range of temperatures, and offering good chemical resistance to most weak acids and alkalis, ketones, alcohols, hydrocarbons, oils and dry cleaning solvents. Fabrics woven of Kevlar® are golden in color but turn tawny in the presence of UV. Kevlar® aramid fiber exhibits poor flex resistance and will cut itself. It is not dyeable. Aramid fabrics are primarily used in polymer matrix laminates such as ballistic armor, in unlaminated layers for protective apparel, and in film laminates such as in high performance sailcloth.
