  • Padding / Treatments / Coatings

    Anti-microbial, DWR, anti-pilling FR treatments and coatings to provide stability are some of the services we can provide. We have the ability to heat-set fabrics or apply very heavy coatings depending upon your end use and specifications.

    Equipped with two complete shear lines, we have the ability to shear just about anything from very high-pile paint rollers and buffing pads to very low-pile applications that require precision. We have experience shearing many different fibers from wool and polyester fabrics to cut resistant blends featuring Nomex®, Kevlar® or Celliant®.
