Coated Fabrics Industry Background
Coated fabric comprises of plastic, rubber, lacquer, polyethylene, varnish making them more flexible and durable. The product can be classified into three primary types based on the raw material used; Polymer, which are produces from various polyvinyl chloride’s emulsions and mixtures. The main feature these material is that they are manufactured at a relatively low cost and can be used in a wide range of applications, including awnings, seating, industrial curtains, upholstery.
Rubber-coated fabrics are manufactured using latex as their base and are used in applications catering to the aviation and marine industry. As these products have a variety of performance characteristics such as resistance to oils, chemicals, and damage from ultra violet rays, they are durable. With all these characteristics, the product find use in protective clothing, inflammable boats, oil blooms, and bellows that are subjected to harsh environment conditions. Fabric-backed wall coverings consist of a solid vinyl coating applied to a woven fabric. The performance characteristics of these vary based on the type of coating applied.
Unlike the broader textile industry, this industry is specialized in nature and their characteristics find use in many industrial applications. These products are used in applications such as automobile, aviation, marine, furniture, and construction. The demand for the product is directly proportional to its application; hence with increase in demand for transportation, industrial products, and furniture, it is expected that the market would increase.
