In the March/April issue of Textile World magazine, Monforts Head of Technical Textiles Jürgen Hanel explains how the company’s technology is providing the full flexibility in coating and finishing that is crucial to advanced textile manufacturers.
Technical textiles are extremely diverse in their end-use applications, he explains, and manufacturers can be called upon to quickly produce a succession of materials with widely differing properties and performance applications – often within a single shift.
For customers of Monforts, these range from substrates for digitally-printed soft signage to carbon fabrics for today’s high-performance composites, and from filter media which must perform in extreme temperatures to flame retardant barrier fabrics.
Then there are the heavy duty membranes which are employed in the collection and storage of methane in biogas plants, as well as materials equipped with sensors and electrical conductors which are now used as base liners in DSC solar cells, to name just a few examples.
These very different materials, however, have one thing in common – they all require expert coating and finishing for maximum efficiency and the technology to allow for ultimate flexibility and the ability to switch quickly from one fabric formula to the next, without compromising on the economical use of energy or raw materials.
