It toke some time but we finally found af way to laminated hypalon and cordura together. Still only small pieces but it will be a game changer in our production.

Want to talk some about the lamination process or are you keeping it a secret?
Does the lamination prevent the edge of the Cordura for opening up and fraying?

This. So much this! So excited that you have cracked this barrier @Mogensbeck. Game changer for your gear. Stoked for you! Big thumbs up!

Pretty sure this is what First Spear are doing with their vests & chest rigs and have been admiring it for a while from a design / aesthetic stand point.

Keen to learn if you are willing to share...

Not to take away from this accomplishment, but apparently HANK printed with patterns is in the pipeline.

I made a batch of laminated cordura just over a year ago:



Problem was that I didn't have the machinery or know how to scale the production up: I could only make small pieces, since I was applying the adhesive on by hand with a paint brush.  Furthermore, I have limited access to a laser cutter.

Trelleborg that makes HANK is also the company that makes Blueforcegears laminated multicam. I hope it will not be like printet webbing that loses its print very fast.
We can buy laminated hypalon/multicam in Italy but it will cost us 2000euros for 10meters and it is cost effective for us but dont have the money for it this year. In the future we will buy it in Italy and then do small custom projects with other camofabric where we dont want to buy the MOQ.

Its not a secret, you can find many videos on youtube how to do a repair on hypalon boat. It is the same process I use. I just do it at work because the way it is done is much similar to composite repair with epoxy. And we have all the safety features at work to do it when we need to repair the helikopter. The Hypalon glue is very toxic just like everything else in the air-industry.

It will fray a little bit just like Hypalon does it.

Pretty sure this is what First Spear are doing with their vests & chest rigs and have been admiring it for a while from a design / aesthetic stand point.

Firstspear have fabric and velcro laminated together to use their 6/9 attachment system. http://www.velcro.com/business/products/converted-and-fabricated-products
What I see on their pictures it does not seem to be as stiff as hypalon laminate.
