Our polyamide elasticized fabrics guarantee the ideal reinforcement solution for power transmission belts production.
Yarns, weaves and special finishing assure elastic properties and excellent adhesion to the polymers applied in downstream processes.
FTS is able to develop fabrics with a wide range of tenacity and modulus properties.
Fabrics for conveyor belts are made with multi/monofilament or discontinuous high tenacity polyester yarns, cotton and aramidic fibers.
These styles have maximum dimensional stability, minimum longitudinal elongation and excellent flexibility; also available with carbon conductive fibers to guarantee anti-static properties.
Fabrics made with carbon fibers permit the production of advanced composite materials with exceptional mechanical properties (modulus of elasticity, resistance to bending stress, traction, compression and a high resistance to fatigue).
Carbon fiber composite materials have higher weight-related performances comparing to any other material.
Para-aramidic fibers are employed in composite materials fabrics (high modulus fiber) and anti-ballistics (high tenacity fiber), suitable for armour plating, bullet-proof vests and helmets.
The fabrics are supplied loom-state, scoured (in order to improve the adhesion) or WRT treated (water and oil repellency treatment) in order to preserve anti-ballistic properties.
Hybrid fabrics combine the chemical–physical properties of the different fibers: for istance the carbon fibers strenght with the impact resistance of para-aramidic fibres, the high fiber-glass adhesion to resins with the mechanical and anti-ballistic properties of para-aramidic fibers.
These solutions also guarantee a good compromise on costs.
Fabrics made with glass fibers offer excellent resistance levels to traction and compression with excellent impregnation of any kind of resin, whilst keeping a competitive price.
Fabrics made in glass are a good alternative to carbon fabrics in several applications where high mechanical properties are not required.
FTS selects different kinds of glass yarn (alkaline-resistant for electrical applications, flat roving for constructions, etc.) to reach the most appropriate performance of the final composite.
Fabrics made of synthetic, artificial or organic fibers, loomstate, raw white or dyed, with additional treatments such as coating, dipping and impregnation.
These products guarantee perfect adhesion and have minimal elongation and perfect orthogonality between warp and weft.
Also available Leno-gauze fabrics, loomstate, raw white or treated for applications in the rubber industry.
