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.

All colours/patterns interest me! If we can buy 60" wide by the yard, I'd be happy.

I'd also like to talk to you about a fabric to foam application. 400 or 500D laminated to 1/8" closed cell foam, perhaps with another layer on the other side. Possible?

+1 to Gear Dynamics, 500D to closed cell would be great

With your laminating capabilities, do you have the ability to tape seams? Im interested in making some waterproof gear; ie dry bags, tents, tarps, etc...

Yes.  200 yards per color on 500D/.125" CCNS/500D.  Once you know exactly what you want, we can quote.

On the production level, yes.
