Water-repellent and flameproof finishings
Flameproof and water repellent finishings
APC launches two new treatments on the market that are able to improve the performance of the cotton reinforcements and make them more interesting, especially for the sports and safety shoes industry, adding to the already wide range of technical reinforcements.
The fabric treated with this process has the ability to resist fire and retard its combustion.
The treatment makes the support resistant to water, preserving the breathability of the fabric, while making it waterproof.
Both of these treatments do not alter the aesthetics of the material nor is any special equipment needed for the production process. They can be applied to all cottons produced by APC, and can then undergo thermo-adhesive and adhesive processing according to the technical specifications of the customer.
The flameproof is considered to belong to the semi-permanent flameproof category.
