Custom solutions and extrusion coating & laminating
Beaulieu Technical Textiles (BTT) is a specialist in close technical collaboration with customers to produce custom-made technical textiles to suit individual projects.
Depending on the functionality and application of the woven textiles, we determine which type of product or which product specifications offer the best possible solution for your needs.
Our Finishing department has a fully automated extrusion coating and laminating line. Technical textiles – woven fabrics and nonwovens - receive an additional treatment, namely the application of a coating layer such as PP, LDPE, LLDPE, EVA or other polymers.
This extrusion coating process makes a fabric waterproof, flame resistant, antistatic and printable. The coating also offers protection against wind, water, cold and chemicals. In addition we are equipped for extrusion laminating, bringing two carriers together with an adhesive extruded layer.
The extrusion coating process is a process in which a liquid coating layer is fixed on a woven or nonwoven fabric. This extruded layer can be applied on one side, two sides or even multi-layer.
