Global Engineered Coated Fabrics Market: Overview
- Engineered coated fabric is a blend of technical fibers or textiles that is coated with different polymers such as fiberglass, polyamide, or polyester. The selection of coating material and fabric depends on the requirement of the end-use application. Engineered coated fabrics are technically coated and manufactured by using modified fabric manufacturing techniques. They are used in unconventional engineering applications.
- Engineered coated fabrics include industrial textiles, braided items, 2-D fabrics, 3-D fabrics, belts, aerospace automotive textiles, and high-performance textiles
- These fabrics are widely used in technically advanced high-end applications such as train bellows, aerostats, fuel storages, air bags, evacuation slides, gaskets, seals, machine clothing, upholstery, hospital seats, and medical accessories. Engineered coated fabrics are usually customized according to requirements of customers.
