The importance of layering


Coating textiles is done by applying a polymer paste or foam. Textiles can be laminated, coated or lined depending on the characteristics your textile will need and the functionality it needs to provide. To aid the coating process, Vertexco provides a number of auxiliaries. These include:

  •     Foaming agents, which generate and stabilise the foaming process
  •     Thickeners, which regulate the viscosity and flow behaviour
  •     Runability improving additives that help economise when it comes to other products
  •     Defoamers, which prevent machine clogging


Technical dream coating

Do you require your functional textile to have special technical properties? Our coatings are used for a variety of applications including workwear, mattresses, solar protection, outdoor clothing, canvas, carpets, tents, protective clothing and so much more.

Properties can span an entire range of functionalities.  Increased breathability and waterproof coatings, for example, are often used in outdoor clothing and camping gear. Other features such as lightproof and water repellent coatings are often used in outdoor textile applications such as awnings and solar blinds. Airtight, anti-slip and flame retardant coatings are used for functional workwear by, for example, first responders.
