Comines-Warneton, Belgium – May 9, 2017 – Beaulieu Technical Textiles (BTT) brings its specialised extrusion coating & extrusion laminating support for industrial applications to the fore at this year’s Techtextil showcase in Hall 4.1. Booth F13.
Technical textile producers are invited to discover the diverse finishing and innovative customisation opportunities possible with BTT’s advanced, fully automated line for Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE) and Polyester (PES) woven fabrics and nonwovens.
BTT’s extrusion coating process can apply a wide range of polymers as a liquid layer – one-sided, two-sided or multi-layer – to make a fabric printable and/or achieve specific protective and functional performance, including waterproofing, flame resistance and antistatic properties. Optional UV stabilisation is also offered. Transparent and white transparent, standard white and black, and coloured coating options are available. Coatings range from minimum 25-30 g/m² up to 450 g/m². As well as standard widths, BTT offers extensive possibilities to customise lengths and widths, with supplementary cutting provided on a separate line with up to 6 cutters in width.
In addition to extrusion coating, BTT is also equipped for extrusion laminating to support the production of composite structures.
