Materials science / Semi rigid batting options?
« on: April 29, 2019, 01:16:53 PM »
I'm currently producing a type of box bag and I have had a couple of clients ask if I can make it a little more rigid. The current composition is 1000d outer, 400d inner, and a premium felt batting (0.125"). Any suggestions on a different batting material that would make it a little more rigid but not increase the overall thickness? I'm considering an HDPE material but I'm worried about making it too rigid.

Introductions / Hello from North Texas

Hello everyone, I'm Nate and I've been lurking the forum for a bit and just now got around to creating an account. Thanks for having me, I'm really enjoying all of the great content here.

Background, I'm a retired Marine Parachute Rigger and FAA Senior Rigger living in North Texas. Started a small tactical nylon and firearms business after retirement. Most of the nylon stuff that I do is associated to the Military Freefall community but I also do small runs of rifle slings and belts, etc. I do most of my prototype stuff in house and then sub my larger production runs out, but I love spending time on the machines as much as I can.
