We are thrilled to be back to the world of in-person trade shows and looking forward to showing existing and potential customers custom weave designs and high-performance fibers that provide inspiration for innovative products and components at IFAI Expo 2021 and the Advance Textiles Conference, to be held November 1-4, 2021, at Music City Center, Nashville TN, Booth # A925.

We will be highlighting new fabrics that use custom weave designs and high-performance fibers or combinations of fibers with patterns specific to end-use applications. Stop by the booth to see examples and tell us what’s on your drawing board. Our experts can discuss creation of innovative patterns that may fit the bill.

Here are just a few examples of what you will find:

  • E-WEBBINGS® – woven fabrics of traditional fibers in conjunction with functional elements, including conductivity, light transmission, and sensors.
  • Composites – fabrics that contain more than one unique fiber for the purpose of utilizing different and inherent properties of each component fiber.
  • Tapes and webbing with superior properties – materials with high strength to weight ratio, chemical resistance, low elongation, and many more properties.
  • Engineered fibers and fabrics utilized in space for mission success and to keep our astronauts and pilots safe – samples of materials used by NASA, ESA, and commercial near and deep space contractors providing materials on Planet Mars.
