CHEMFAB® products are a proven solution for a wide range of textile applications, which include but are not limited to digital printing and drying, garment fusing, textile lamination both woven and non-woven fabrics , curing and casting applications, and the production of carpeting and walk on/off floor mats. In many of these applications the role of the CHEMFAB® fabric or belt will be as a process aid.
The selection of material is driven by consideration of the user’s equipment productivity. CHEMFAB® fabrics and belts offer consistent, long-lasting performance and maximize equipment uptime, product throughput and product quality.
CHEMFAB PTFE (Teflon™) coated fabric conveyor belts are the product of choice in nonwoven fabric processing. The high-temperature heat resistance and non-stick release properties of CHEMFAB belting are critical features of the thermal bonding process used to manufacture nonwovens. A variety of conveyor belt reinforcement materials provides performance options which are tailored to the challenging equipment conditions and types of nonwoven materials processed. High quality materials and fabrication of the conveyor belts using advanced seaming technologies deliver the long-lasting, reliable belt performance required in this application.
High quality printing of textile fabrics is made possible by CHEMFAB PTFE coated open-mesh belting. CHEMFAB belts are used to convey even the most delicate printed fabrics through the oven drying process. The consistent quality of CHEMFAB belting products allows long-lasting resistance to the printing dyes and eliminates mark-off onto the fabric printing. The width options and dimensional stability of CHEMFAB belting are critical for tensionless fabric drying applications.
CHEMFAB PTFE coated fabrics provide a range of options in garment fusing and textile lamination applications. The bonding of textile and fusible materials in press or lamination equipment requires the reliable performance of CHEMFAB belts and release sheets. Product options deliver the optimal balance of heat transfer, surface smoothness for no mark-off, and long-lasting product life required by a variety of equipment and processes used in these applications.
