Impressive bit of kit! Would be interested in seeing a thread about the installation process.

Is there something specific you'd like to know?  We rolled it off the pallet, connected hoses, and connected power.

My email and facebook were flooded with questions regarding this acquisition.  I'll do my best to keep it here as this repository's existence is not subject to the whim of facebook or other platforms.

We purchase direct from BOFA.  No matter from whom you purchase, it will drop ship from BOFA Americas in Illinois if you're in the US.  Send out an RFQ and see who comes back with the best price. 

Keep in mind you'll need a hose kit, fittings, hose clamps, reducers, blast gates if you're hooking up multiple machines, pay the extra money for the VOC sensor option (it's only $350ish), and depending on the unit you may need 3 phase power.

Plan on positioning the machine in such a way that the purified air exhaust hose has a short run to the outside.  Blasting 100F / 38C purified air back into your shop will heat things up quick.

Depending on machine selection, you may need 208 or 440 3 phase power.  Run a dedicated circuit for your machine.  Make sure it's grounded properly.  Don't hesitate to hammer drill your foundation and ground it with a copper rod.

WTF just added another BOFA iQ to our arsenal of capitalism.  The AD2000iQ removes particulate and gas at up to 1295CFM (2200 m/hr) at 96mBar.  Cutting capacity and versatility have been increased markedly.

WTF take great pride in providing our employees with safe, modern manufacturing equipment enabling them to better concentrate on making a good part.

Take care of your people and keep them safe.  Say no to slave labor, prison labor, and undercompensated labor.  Encourage your employees to learn by empowering them with positive reinforcement.  Make money while helping others.  Enjoy life.

What's the background for this fabric? Is it a waterproof glue?

I don't know the reason for its creation or if the glue is waterproof.  The fabric is offered as, "water resistant," and, can be "utilized in... waterproof bags..."

PU coated on the outside? Curious about the durability. Cost?

Yes.  PU coated on both sides.  No idea about durability.  Cost is on par with 35oz HANK.

Is it the same as used by SS for their plateframe?

I won't speculate on materials used by another manufacturer.

Whiskey Two Four are excited to add Trelleborg's Tactwear to our contract cutting offerings.  Tactwear is a 500D / 500D laminate with a PU coating on both sides.  Tactwear is Berry compliant and made with Cordura yarn.  Email <oem AT wtfidea DOT com> for more info.

Fresh production Velcro Brand Type II Class 4 (trimmed selvage) Berry compliant, milspec, 6" hook and loop. By the yard- $6.00/yard. By the 50 yard roll, $3.20/yard.  Black, ranger, and coyote.

Trimmed selvage is less fatiguing for sewing machine operators and cuts more consistently in automatic strip cutters.

What does the core look like? Solid, multi strand, black, white?

I don't know.  I'll check the next time I see it.

Do you think this would work if I wanted to wrap Safariland Kydex holsters?

I don't know.  I can only comment on using it for laser cut patches and scraps getting stuck to my soles.

Right on, I just purchased 3 sheets to experiment with.
Do I need a heat press to activate the adhesive?
Do you think there would be a benefit of using a thicker laminated fabric for the base color? For more stiffness?
Thanks, Scott

Thank you!  The description was just modified to indicate a few extra days to ship.  We got to the bottom and the last 4 sheets were destroyed due to improper storage.  Less than a week to ship from 28MAY2019.

No heat press required.  It's PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive).  A dry press might not hurt.

Depending on the desired hand, a laminate may provide the stiffness you're after.
