Engineered Fabrics high-performance technical textiles

MEHLER’s engineered fabrics cover the whole spectrum of woven technical fabrics.
Our fabric solutions are based on industry-proven yarns, engineered fabric constructions, tailor-made fabric finishing, treatments and coatings as well as tailored cuts.

The comprehensive product portfolio 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 Mechanical Rubber Goods (MRG). 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 the textile and rubber, we treat our fabrics with RFL (resorcinol formaldehyde latex), or alternatively, with our RF-free solution Mehler Sustain Adhesive (MSA).

MEHLER’s customers expect highest product 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, cutting and lab testing need to be managed. We are optimally positioned for such tasks, as we control and manage the entire value chain internally.

Explore our two categories of woven engineered fabrics:

Specialty Fabrics

Specialty Fabrics are woven fabrics with high technical functionality in terms of tensile strength, elongation, weight, thickness and different finishing options. The variety of specialty fabrics is enormous. The technical scope can differ from very light and flexible textiles to heavy and ultra-high tensile strenghts – always depanding on the type of application and its specific requirements.

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.
We produce untreated fabrics with a width of up to 5,40 cm (212″), dip-coated fabrics up to 5,20 m (204″) and treated fabrics up to 2,95 m (116″).

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 as dashboards, car bodies or seat frames.
Explore our broad market segments and applications.

The range of applications is multiplex and not restricted. MEHLER’s scope of applications of Specialty Fabrics is growing steadily – thanks to close cooperations with new customers and with our existing customers on new products.
