Asset exchange / WTB Swiss camo 500D Cordura (TAZ90)
« on: December 18, 2019, 06:57:25 AM »
Good day,

I was approached by a customer to make him some patches.
He did ask if I had the current Swiss camo in stock (no) and so I have been looking around for 500D Cordura in the current Swiss camo.

Has anyone some fabric laying around? Or can someone send me off in the correct direction to a seller?

That would be awsome;

Hav a great day.

I did it the moment I started my buisness.

It keeps everything much more organised then do all the work from a personal account.

Service exchange / Looking for a hot/cold cutter service
« on: July 11, 2019, 07:25:13 AM »
Good day,

I'm in the running for a large contract need someone to cut a lot of narrow elastic fabric and velcro.

I need
2600 pieces of 4" elastic webbing (length 5,9" - 15cm)
2600 pieces of 4" hook velcro (length 4" - 10cm)
2600 pieces of 4" loop velcro (length 3,15" - 8cm)

I'm not looking to buy my own hot/cold cutter at this moment so need someone to cut these pieces for me. I'm looking for a company to work with and do the cutting for me

If you can help me out, drop a message here.

I'm located in Belgium EU.
But I do not have a fetish that the material needs to come from the EU.

Leed time is as short as possible.

Material is 4" Elastic webbing and 4" Velcro (hook and loop)

Just to clarify the question about the dark brown. It needs to be a lot darker than Coyote brown.

Hey guys,

The most urgent one is 500D cordura in dark brown. Have been looking all over the place but can't seem to find it. I have found it in 1000D but no luck in the 500D departement. Need it for a custom project for a customer.

Second, less urgent and could find it on ebay if I get lucky. But if any has some to spare: AOR1 and 2.

Hope someone can help me out on the dark brown. That would be awsome.

Asset exchange / WTB PenCott Greenzone

I need your help.
I have to make a few patches in PenCott Greenzone. I need 2 meter 500D Cordura for this project.

Have been looking all over the internet but it seems that all PenCott Greenzone is sold out. Contacted a few companies by email but no luck. Not even MMI.

Is there anyone who could spare the amount.

So it is just using the correct IR reflective ink.
You set me up in the correct direction.

Hey guys,

I have a question regarding the technique for IR printed patches. Been looking on google but came back with nothing.
Has anyone any idea how the proces works and what kind of tools you need to produce these?

Hope someone is willing to share some intel.

Hey boys and girls,

I have a question, maybe i'm doing it wrong but Google wont help me out.
I'm looking for a manufacturer of IR reflecive material. Black is an awsome start but if somebody had an adres where they sell different options that would be awsome.

Currently I did my shopping with but they ran out of 2" material. Due to a project i need some material as fast as possible.

Any suppliers in the EU would be a plus.

Hope somsone can help me out here.
