Advances in coating technology

11 November 2009

“Coated Industrial Textiles: Coating Technologies and Profiles of Three Specialist Producers” examines the growth of the coated fabrics industry and looks at how three European companies - Contitech, Gamma and Sioen Industries - have successfully resisted the threat of competition from lower cost countries through specialisation in this field.

The report highlights plasma coating, a flexible and versatile surface engineering process for adding functionality to textiles; and inkjet deposition, which is seen as more than just a printing technique and will be influential in simplifying manufacturing processes, making mass customisation possible and achieving design flexibility.
