Silicone fiberglass high temperature fabric.  Excellent for hot pipe insulating sleeves, welding blankets, and more.  The fabric laser cuts mostly clean with slight edge melting and charring.

Will it work for your specific application?  I don't know.

15oz / sq yard

0.020" thick

60" wide

500F / 260C working temperature

1000F / 540C peak temperature

Materials science / Laminate options
« on: September 14, 2018, 10:40:04 AM »
Are you looking for something other than what's available on the market currently?  Almost every day we experiment with new solvents, adhesives, sonic and vibration welding, and a few other related processes.  This constant scientific evaluation and testing has given us all the boring, tedious details, speeds, and feeds to produce the optimal combination of peel strength, weight, abrasion resistance, and hand.  It's easy to spend thousand or tens of thousands on development failures.  Let us produce a result for you while saving you money.

The demand for 500D/500D in the big 4 colors has precluded us from offering other options.  A new, bigger, whizbang laminating machine with all sorts bells, whistles, and doodads will offer us additional production capacity.

Are you interested in 500D / 1000D?  1000D / 1000D  500D / 330D?  Some other combination?

Solution dyed navy blue (fingers crossed for LAPD blue) should be available 2019 if that color interests you.

Service exchange / Custom laminating up to 60" wide
« on: September 05, 2018, 09:32:15 AM »
Do you need almost anything stuck to almost anything else?  Eliminate costly touch labor and increase throughput with a lamination solution for your production lamentation.

WTF stock a vast selection of milspec, solution dyed, Berry compliant wide and narrow fabrics ready for conversion in to your custom laminated product up to 60" wide.

Do you need a particular peel strength?  Waterproof barrier?  Integrated electronic circuits or wires?  Aramid or paraaramid reinforcement?  We do that.

Email <laminating AT wtfidea DOT com>

Are you tired of cutting 60" wide fabric to size for your laser or knife cutter?  Do you realize the touch labor costs involved when cutting fabric to size?

We stock 60" wide 75 yard rolls of milspec, Berry 500D nylon ready for slitting to your specified width(s).  Black, coyote brown, Multicam and ranger green (unavailable until October-ish due to Invista yarn plant relocation).  We can rewind to any size roll you like--> Smaller rolls reduce employee fatigue and injury probability.

Email your needs to <converting AT wtfidea DOT com>

WTF stock ACRONYM and SQUADRON laminate for cutting parts to your spec.  For contract cutting we charge cost + 10% for materials we stock.  10% pays for the the energy to get it here and store it in a climate controlled environment.

We can cut parts up to 54.75" 1390mm wide (limited by the 55" 1397mm width of laminate fabric) x 98" 2490mm long.

Email your CAD (dxf, cdr, or PDF please) to <quote AT wtfidea DOT com> for a fixed, per part price plus setup fee per color.  We accept CAD for individual parts and nested layouts.

NDAs may be submitted for inspection with a $250 counsel inspection fee.  The fee is credited to your first order.  Attorneys who actively practice IP and gear design ain't cheap.  It doesn't make financial sense for us to participate in an agreement that hinders our business.  We stock laminate to sell laser time: cut yardage rates and 5 yard rolls rate reflect this.

Workspace, tools, machinery, and manufacturing / Juki LU-2828V-7
« on: August 12, 2018, 10:32:41 AM »
Nick of http://nickosew.com/ let us know that some LU-2828V-7s were available.

I hadn't heard of them.  Mother of God.  I couldn't imagine stitch quality better than what the 2828A-7 offers but Juki figured it out.  And they're WiFi enabled

New machinery should arrive early September.  Very exciting.  If you have questions, please ask.

And you can talk to it with a tablet (9000C shown)-

LU-2800V-7 Series

Semi-dry, direct-drive, Unison-feed, Lockstitch Sewing System (Digital Type)

The LU-2800V-7 Series are high-performance sewing machines that have been digitized for easier set-up and operation . It leaves a shorter thread on the material at the beginning of sewing by means of the needle thread clamp device, as well as at the end of sewing by means of the thread trimmer. Thanks to the adoption of a 2.7-fold hook (LU-2828V-7), the frequency of bobbin thread changing is reduced and work-ability is improved. Perfect parameters needed to achieve a high quality seams can be set digitally and key conditions do not need to be manually adjusted. Thanks to this digitalization, optimum adjustment values required to produce high-quality seams can be stored on a material-by-material basis in the machines internal memory and can be reproduced with ease.

Tired of wildly varying widths of hook and loop?  We found a modern, world class mill in Taiwan who can accommodate.  We're starting with 6" wide hook and loop made to A-A-55126-B and then trimmed of selvage to a final width of 6" +/- 0.050".  We look forward to introducing more widths in the coming months.

Trimmed selvage hook and loop behaves so much more predictably than hook and loop with selvage.  Lengths will lay flat without warping and with minimal curling.  These properties produce a much more consistent cut on automated cutting equipment.  There's a teeny bit more hook and loop surface area too.

It will be available in black, coyote brown, ranger green, and wolf grey.

Sold by the yard at $7.50/yard, 25 yard roll at $3.30/yard, and by the 75 yard case at $2.50/yard.  First delivery is expected in October.  POs without prepayment are accepted to reserve yours.

Expanding into another air conditioned space open next door.  Moving in July (in the northern hemisphere) is gross.

It's called paracord, 550, parachute cord, and other names.  What's out there and what's the difference between what's out there?

Internet points and WTF swag and/or goodies and/or money via PayPal will be awarded to member(s) who offer a comprehensive reply.
