Are you sitting or lying down as well as you could? Cover fabrics for furniture and mattresses are exposed to a lot of stress during their use. These home textiles can be made from a variety of different materials, such as cotton, linen, half-linen or viscose fibres. They provide increased seating and bedding comfort and also protect the furniture – in some cases even against fire. Mattress ticking is characterised by high abrasion resistance and durability, and also firms up mattresses. Fibres are more likely to move under mechanical stress in textiles with fewer wefts. To prevent fibre movement and to increase strength, the textile is laminated with a fleece for reinforcement. Superior cover fabrics which are woven with more wefts are coated on the reverse side with a layer of adhesive to increase the durability of the textile.
For laminating as well as for coating of furniture and mattress cover fabrics, the product of choice are polyolefin hot melts applied by roller coaters. These adhesives are adapted to the specific requirements of the individual application and ensure fast setting as well as the necessary resistance to movement of warp and weft in textiles.
The products listed only represent a limited selection of the available product portfolio. Product availability might differ by region. The technical data, characteristics and field of application provided in the table outline the differences between the individual adhesives of the product portfolio. Our Application Technology Department and our Sales Representatives are on hand to provide advice and support you finding the best adhesive for your particular application.
