Coated Textiles are a type of Technical Textile, which are textiles that are engineered for specific end-use applications. Coated Textiles are created by applying a coating to a base fabric, such as polyester, nylon, or cotton. This coating can be a variety of materials, such as polyurethane, silicone, or acrylic, and is used to provide the fabric with additional properties, such as water resistance, flame retardancy, or UV protection. Coated Textiles are used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, medical, and military.
Coated Textiles are also used in the apparel industry, where they are used to create waterproof and breathable fabrics for outdoor clothing. Coated Textiles are also used in the home furnishing industry, where they are used to create fabrics that are resistant to stains and fading.
Some companies in the Coated Textile market include Milliken & Company, Huntsman Textile Effects, and Dickson Coated Fabrics. Show Less Read more
