Fabric Bonding & Treatment

You can trust us

Textile Ennobling

To ennoble a textile fabric means to attribute to it:
• Color
• Tactile effects
• Performance Behaviors
• Designs/aesthetic reasons

All this is done by application of chemicals in water and mechanical actions

Resin coating

Ability to resin a variety of materials in both blade and cylinder:
• Blade resins
• Cylinder resins
• Resin impregnation
• Hydrolytic treatments
• Hydrophobic Treatments
• Total or single-sided treatments

Flame bonding

Suitable for joining thermo-melting products, such as PU and PE foam, with synthetic or natural products

Hot-Melt bonding

Suitable for joining a variety of materials such as:
membranes, Flexible and expanded Plastic Films, rubbers, fabrics, papers both in sheets and rolls Ideal for Technical and Fashion fabrics, excellent performance, breathability, air and water tightness.

Adhesive

Our SBR-based adhesives, are suitable for all kinds of fabrics and can be made on heights between 70 cm and 150 cm

Thermoadhesive

We carry out processing in THERMO 60, THERMO 90 and Paperless Dry:
• Thermo 60: used for heat-sensitive fabrics such as leather.
• Thermo 90: used for all types of fabric.
• Dry Without Paper: thermoadhesive to be applied at temperature above 100°C without protective paper.
For both of the above workings, availability to carry out biadhesive and bitermo.

Water-soluble

Used for momentary lamination of fabrics

Polyurethane film

ideal for laminations of synthetic fabrics or furs where a soft hand (e.g.clothing) and tightness to washing is required

Treatments

• Crown: Preparation of surfaces to be bonded;
• Water repellent: stain resistant, WR drip resistant, fluorine free;
• Fireproof: For all protection classes;
• Antibacterial: Prevents the growth of fungi and bacteria;
• Anti-odor: Prevents the formation of unpleasant odors;

Surface Treatments

• Calendering
• Laminating
• Under glass
• Patterned application

Technology is increasingly present in what we wear, in fabrics that receive treatments and finishes that give simple garments innovative properties. The sample book is our history, and having an archive means having a returning past, an evolving present, and an increasingly technological future. APLAB is our in-house laboratory set up to carry out tests on materials being studied and manufactured according to the required technical specifications.

In APLAB you can simulate the production process for composing special samples for your creations. Top international fashion ,sports brands and even aerospace agencies have found APLAB an invaluable collaborator. Active is the word we like to use in recent years. Experimentation in fabrics has created incredibly efficient and innovative materials. A leader in the field of innovation in fabrics APLAB is the soul of the Accoppiatura Pratese where we have been channeling all the tests we have done and the results we have obtained for years. We test protective support fabrics in the medical-safety field, we want to ensure innovative and customized performance for every need.

We are in constant and increasingly technological pursuit of performance, the ultimate protection from wind, water, dirt, fire even the electromagnetic wave network. Thus, the fashion-technology combination has become a driving force in an ever-evolving system, all of which can only be fulfilled by an increasingly competitive and innovative product offering. APLAB is used to test new applications, new products, and quality controls, both on raw materials (resins and chemicals) and finished fabrics. We achieve special visual and “hand” effects. Our equipment allows us to perform:

• Lab dips for control and verification of coating resins using our pilot coating machine;
• Lab dips by scarf impregnation (padding lab);
• Screen printing trials (wet printing);
• Air permeability (air tronic permeability) test;
• Checking water column resistance (hydrostatic head tester);
• Checking water column resistance (hydrostatic head tester);

Innovation, thus, is the most responsible, successful and competitive choice to offer the market environmentally sustainable and quality items for a fashion that looks to the future. The alternatives are always there, you just have to look for them and invest in them. At your disposal our Know How for new implementations and to optimize production costs.
