PU / PVC SPECIAL COMPOUNDS
MAXIUM WIDTH 160cm
Backcoating is a traditional coating process, We source the very best compounds and do extensive trials to ensure we reach the required specification and still leave the fabric with a exceptionally good handle.
We adjust the amount and type of compound added to meet your FR requirements. Some fabric compositions such as PVC and PU have a specially developed compound applied.
Textiles with a high synthetic content can sometimes prove difficult using a coating system as the compound cannot be absorbed by the yarn. Synthetic fabrics that require the higher standards such as Crib 5 will be treated with a lamination process or in some cases a multi-treatment.
Textiles compositions that are suited to a backcoating consist
COTTON, COTTON/VISCOSE, POLY/COTTON, POLY/VISCOSE, POLY/VISCOSE-ACRYLIC, POLYESTER, LINEN, SILK, WOOL, MOHAIR, FLAX, ANY COMBINATION OF THESE YARNS.
This treatment is not suitable for ACRYLIC, NYLON, POLYPROPYLENE, POLYETHYLENE COMPOSITIONS.
PAD IMPREGNATION PROCESS
SOIL AND STAIN
MAXIUM WIDTH 160 cm
A wet process is used for contract curtains and bedcovers. This means there will be no visible signs of FR treatment. Because of the nature of this process we can only recommend dryclean/ insitu cleaning only.
Soil and Stain Treatments and Anti-Microbial treatments can also be applied using this method.
The following textiles can be treated using this method:
COTTON, COTTONVISCOSE, POLYCOTTON, POLYVISCOSE, POLYVISCOSE-ACRYLIC, LINEN, SILK, WOOL, MOHAIR, COTTON VOILES, ANY COMBINATION OF THESE YARNS.
This process is not suitable for these yarns :ACRYLIC, ACETATE, POLYETHYLENE, POLYPROPYLENE, NYLON.
Uses the same process but has a natural compound, hence no toxic emission and is able to treat:
ALL TREATMENTS ( Including Upholstery )
Ace is a natural FR compound for natural fibres and has a built in Soil and Stain Treatment. The Textile must have a minimum of 75% cellulosic fibres to be effective and must have no other treatment on the fabric.
Textiles that can be treated are:
COTTON, POLYESTER 25% / COTTON 75%, COTTONVISCOSE, WOOL, MOHAIR, SILK, ANY COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE.
This compound is not suitable for SYNTHETIC FIBRES.
SOIL AND STAIN REPELLENT, BIONIC
Using this process we can also add anti-microbial treatments and this can be applied to most fabrics with the exception of:
NYLON, 100%ACRYLIC, POLYPROPYLENE, ACETATE or any fabric that melts at 140 ◦c.
ALL UPHOLSTERY SPECIFICATION
CURTAINS / BEDCOVERS (need to be trialed first)
This process is unique to Tek Treatments, It uses natural compounds, is non-toxic and can be recylcled. It leaves the fabric machine washable / dry cleanable and has an extremely good handle. On curtains it will help act as a blackout / thermal lining.
Lamination is only suitable for fabrics which have a minimum of
75% synthetic fibre such as
100% POLYESTER, POLYESTER ACRYLIC, ACRYLIC, WOOLPOLYESTER, PVC VINYLS, PU VINYLS, MANMADE LEATHERS, TREVIRA CS.
Some fabrics such as 100% Acrylics may need to have a backcoat applied before laminating.
This process is not suitable for NATURAL FIBRES
WATERPROOF / BLACKOUT MEMBRANES
This process can be applied to any composition of fabric, however
the flatter the construction the better as a pile or abrasive fabrics may
puncture the film.
