The difference between coated fabrics and composite fabrics in detail

- Aug 11, 2020-

Coated fabric:

Coated fabrics are fabrics (or non-woven fabrics) covered with a layer of polymer or other materials to form a composite of fabric and polymer.


The coated fabric uses solvent or water to dissolve the required coating rubber particles (PU glue, A/C glue, PVC, PE glue) into a salivation shape, and then uniformly in some way (cylinder, scraper or roller) Coated on the fabric (with cotton, polyester, nylon and other substrates), and then fixed at the temperature in the oven to form a uniform covering rubber on the surface of the fabric.


Composite fabric:

Composite fabric can be understood as a new fabric in which two (or more) fabrics with different components, different organizations or different dyeing and finishing processes are compounded together through a special process.


The composite fabric uses the "new synthetic fiber" high technology and new materials, and has many excellent properties (compared with ordinary synthetic fibers), such as the fabric performance is fine and clean, delicate, elegant and warm, the fabric appearance is full, and it has a certain waterproof , Windproof, breathable and other functions.

Its main features are warmth and good air permeability. Another feature of the fabric is: good abrasion resistance, the microfiber fabric is soft, breathable, and moisture permeable, so it has obvious advantages in terms of touch and physiological comfort. The microfiber fabric has poor wrinkle resistance (this It is because the fiber is soft and the elastic recovery is poor after creasing); in order to overcome this shortcoming, a "composite" process is adopted, which greatly improves the shortcomings of the poor wrinkle resistance of ultrafine fiber fabrics. Composite fabric is a popular outerwear fabric in Europe and America.
