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.
