About Coated Fabrics
The coated fabrics is a flexible composite material formed by applying an adhesive to one or both sides of a fabric substrate and precisely coating it with different rubber compounds depending on the final application of the fabric. After the coating cures, it forms a strong bond between the rubber and the fabric. The final product after coating and curing is strong and flexible. It has good stability, is washable, durable and much stronger than uncoated fabrics. The rubberized fabric has a very tight texture and therefore low permeability and diffusion. They conduct electricity and are resistant to weather, oil and temperature.
Coated fabrics are recommended for all applications requiring a watertight or highly watertight material that is not breathable. Depending on the coating type, the fabric will have different specifications: Silicone coating can increase tensile strength, TPU coating can be welded, PU coating can also increase water resistance, while making the fabric more rigid and stable, which is very suitable for Backpacks and handbags.
If you need material to make a tent or tarp, bag or backpack, or if you want to sew a waterproof cover or a simple footprint, you're in the right place.
Note that "coating" does not necessarily equate to waterproofing. If you're looking for waterproof fabrics, take note of the info on the water column or use the filter options.
