Engineered Fabrics

MEHLER’s engineered fabrics cover the whole spectrum of woven fabrics.

Our customers expect on-quality and on-time manufacturing of our woven engineered fabrics. To meet these requirements, multi-stage processes, such as texturizing, twisting, warping and weaving, tumbling, treating, coating and finishing need to be managed. We are optimally positioned for such tasks, as we control and manage the entire value chain internally.

Our comprehensive portfolio of engineered fabrics is used for a variety of applications. Most of the fabrics are tailor-made to meet the needs of specific downstream processes and end-uses. Engineered fabrics are often used to reinforce different types of rubber compounds. In a textile/rubber composite structure, the textile fabric provides properties such as tensile strength and stiffness. In order to achieve the required degree of adhesion between textile and rubber, we coat our fabrics with RFL (resorcinol formaldehyde latex), or alternatively, with RF-free components.

Most of our woven fabrics are tailor-made. Our fabric solutions are based on industry-proven yarns, engineered fabric constructions, tailor-made fabric finishing, treatments and coatings as well as tailored cuts. We produce untreated fabrics with a width of up to 5,40 m, dip-coated fabrics up to 5,20 m and treated fabrics up to 2,95 m. The fabric treatments include dry finishes such as heat-setting, tumbling, calendaring and doubling, and wet finishes like rubber-adhesive, oil/water-repellent, bitumen-friendly, flame/heat-resistant, antistatic, UV-resistant and colored. Fabric coating includes coating with PVC dispersion and paste (polyvinyl chloride), NBR (nitrile-butadiene rubber), CR (chloroprene rubber), SBR latex (styrene-butadiene rubber), PVA (polyvinyl alcohol), PVAC (polyvinyl acetate), PU (polyurethane), silicone and acrylate blends.

Explore our two categories of woven engineered fabrics:

Specialty Fabrics

Specialty Fabrics are woven fabrics with high technical functionality in regard to tensile strengths, elongation, weight, thickness and treatments. The variety of specialty fabrics is enormous. The technical scope can differ from very light textiles and low tensile strengths to heavy and ultra-high strenghts – always depanding on the type of applications and their specific requirements.

Specialty Fabrics are used in versatile markets and applications like filters, membranes, handrails, ballistic protection vests, floors, flat roofs, awnings, swimming pools, scrims, meshes, geotextiles and many more.
In the mobility sector, specialty fabrics are used in timing belts, brake diaphragms, air bag covers, battery covers for electric cars, air filters or composites reinfoced with fabrics like for car interior like dashboards, car bodies or seat frames.
The range of applications is multiplex and not restricted. The product range of applications of MEHLER’s Specialty Fabrics is growing steadily, thanks to close cooperations with our customers on new products as well as our new customers. If you are looking for a competent partner for your woven fabric needs – MEHLER is your experienced partner.
