Custom Coated Fabrics
All of our products start as custom designs, developed for our customer's specific needs. Our extensive development resources shared by all Worthen sales groups can develop unique properties through chemistry and flexible converting to suit most needs. Our development process begins in the lab with bench chemistry to develop coatings and compounds and produce hand samples for initial evaluation. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your application requirements. We look forward to working with you.
Specialty Coatings & Compounds
We offer a limited number of coatings, either water or solvent based, for use in your operations as an adhesive, for repairs or subsequent converting to supplement your product.
