Davis-Standard to Market Fabric Coating Innovation at Techtextil North America

Davis-Standard, LLC will promote the company’s extensive fabric coating portfolio at booth #1615 during Techtextil North America on August 23 – 25, in Raleigh, N.C. Davis-Standard offers a range of performance technology for high-volume fabric coating applications as well as high-value engineered textile composite applications. This includes extruders, controls, feedscrews, unwinds and winders, laminators, extrusion coaters and web handling equipment.

For high volume applications, processors can reportedly extrude LDPE, PP, HPDE and LLDPE blends in a variety of structures, with speeds up to 1500 feet per minute (450 meters per minute), thickness range of 15 to 400 microns and typical web widths up to 160 inches (4000 millimeters). Applications include lumber wrap, underlayment, house wrap, membranes, and industrial packaging.

Davis-Standard will highlight its high-output CHP extruder for flexibility as well as an in-line coater with priming on one or both sides to promote adhesion for manufacturing multiple products on the same line. The CHP accommodates existing carriage or platform structures, and can easily fit into tight spaces for retrofits, coextrusion upgrades, and as a replacement extruder to increase output and line speed.

For high-value engineered textile composite applications, Davis-Standard’s in-line coating and laminating machinery supports consistent and reliable adhesion. Applications include chemical-resistant garments, footwear, and protective outerwear as well as multiple products for the food, marine and aviation industries.

Davis-Standard’s equipment can reportedly support speeds up to 330 feet per minute (100 meters per minute), thickness range of 15 to 2500 microns and typical widths up to 126 inches (3200 millimeters). Coaters are capable of coating one or both sides of the web for product adaptability. Applying the primer in-line has been advantageous in helping converters avoid a secondary process while also providing in-house quality control and intellectual property protection.
