CUSTOM-MADE FABRIC LAMINATION
Fabrics of our customers are meticulously bonded to each other with Thermoplastics (CoPA, CoPES and EVA) and Reactive PU (Polyurethane) adhesives with minimum wastage. This process is performed in 2 different ways:
by employing Thermoplastic Adhesives
The heated thermoplastic adhesive is applied between two fabrics by printing and the process is completed once the adhesive cools down. It is generally preferred for the price advantage it offers and time saving thanks to rapid bonding just after the manufacture. In this type of bonding that has strength in dry-cleaning process and washing at 40C, generally thin and semi-thin woven, knitted and non-woven fabrics are preferred. This type of process meets generally soft and medium-tough tactile qualities expected from the fabric.
by employing Reactive Polyurethane (PU) Adhesives
This process is completed when the PU adhesives, applied by heating like the thermoplastic adhesives, get dry due to the ambient humidity after a particular period of time. They are generally employed to bond to each other the fabrics that hardly bind or that require high washing resistance, or to bond external materials such as film, membrane and non-woven to the fabric. This type of bonding is preferred especially for heavy, porous and silicone fabrics where the bonding power of thermoplastic adhesives falls short. Thanks to the high strength after lamination, it is resistant to finishing processes such as stone washing that may be applied after polar laminations to denim fabrics.
