Performance Coatings & Adhesives
Our textile customers rely on our water- and solvent-borne urethanes to coat a variety of substrates including nylon, polyester, and poly-cotton blends to produce fabrics that are fire retardant, breathable, water proof, and scuff resistant. These fabrics find use in applications such as golf apparel, soft-sided luggage, backpacks, and tents.
We have worked with the automotive industry for over a decade developing specialty products to solve tough problems. Our water-borne urethane adhesives offer an environmentally friendly alternative for laminating polyethylene foam to vinyl and TPO (thermoplastic polyolefin) substrates for use in automotive interiors. In addition, we produce water- and solvent-borne top coats for interior applications such as dashboards and door panels.
