Davis-Standard to Market Fabric Coating Innovation at Techtextil North America
Davis-Standard, LLC will promote the company’s extensive fabric coating portfolio at booth #1615 during Techtextil North America on August 23 – 25, 2021 in Raleigh, N.C. Davis-Standard offers a range of performance technology for high-volume fabric coating applications as well as high-value engineered textile composite applications. This includes extruders, controls, feedscrews, unwinds and winders, laminators, extrusion coaters and web handling equipment.
For high volume applications, processors can extrude LDPE, PP, HPDE and LLDPE blends in a variety of structures, with speeds up to 1500 feet per minute (450 mpm), thickness range of 15 to 400 microns and typical web widths up to 160 inches (4000 mm). Applications include lumber wrap, underlayment, house wrap, membranes, and industrial packaging. Davis-Standard will highlight its high-output CHP extruder for flexibility as well as an in-line coater with priming on one or both sides to promote adhesion for manufacturing multiple products on the same line. The CHP accommodates existing carriage or platform structures, and can easily fit into tight spaces for retrofits, coextrusion upgrades, and as a replacement extruder to increase output and line speed.
For high-value engineered textile composite applications, Davis-Standard’s in-line coating and laminating machinery supports consistent and reliable adhesion. Applications include chemical-resistant garments, footwear, and protective outerwear as well as multiple products for the food, marine and aviation industries. Davis-Standard’s equipment can support speeds up to 330 feet per minute (100 mpm), thickness range of 15 to 2500 microns and typical widths up to 126 inches (3200 mm). Coaters are capable of coating one or both sides of the web for product adaptability. Applying the primer in-line has been advantageous in helping converters avoid a secondary process while also providing in-house quality control and intellectual property protection.
“We look forward to participating in Techtextil North America in August,” said Sumeet Kumar, Director of Strategic Marketing for Davis-Standard Converting Systems. “This show represents every vertical aspect of the technical textile industry, so it presents a great opportunity for us to network and gain exposure among decision-makers. Fabric coating is a growing market segment for us and we are well-equipped to support converters with the type of cost-saving efficiency they need to be competitive.”
