BTT presents extrusion coating and laminating capabilities at Techtextil 2017
Beaulieu Technical Textiles (BTT), member of the Beaulieu International Group, has featured its extrusion coating and extrusion laminating capabilities for industrial applications, alongside its customer-oriented and market-specific textile solutions, at this year’s Techtextil in Frankfurt, last week.
Technical textile producers were invited to discover the diverse finishing and innovative customisation opportunities possible with BTT’s advanced, fully automated line for Polypropylene (PP), Polyethylene (PE) and Polyester (PES) woven fabrics and nonwovens.
BTT’s extrusion coating process
BTT’s extrusion coating process can apply a wide range of polymers as a liquid layer – one-sided, two-sided or multi-layer – to make a fabric printable and/or achieve specific protective and functional performance, including waterproofing, flame resistance and antistatic properties.
Optional UV stabilisation is also offered. Transparent and white transparent, standard white and black, and coloured coating options are available. Coatings range from minimum 25-30 g/m² up to 450 g/m². As well as standard widths, BTT offers extensive possibilities to customise lengths and widths, with supplementary cutting provided on a separate line with up to 6 cutters in width.
In addition to extrusion coating, BTT is also equipped for extrusion laminating to support the production of composite structures.

"Our in-house extrusion capabilities are available to external customers and we offer close technical collaboration to ensure the optimal treatment for the desired result for their application.
