Bally Ribbon Mills Polyester Webbing Ideal for DOD and U.S. Military Applications


At Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), innovation and a desire to take on advanced design challenges are just two key factors that allow team members to keep the company ahead of the field in developing and improving technology.

In line with these tenets, BRM has recently expanded its capabilities for producing superior polyester webbing that is fully compliant with the Berry Amendment. This standard requires the Department of Defense to give preference to domestically produced fabrics and clothing.

Wide range of applications

BRM polyester webbing is ideal for use by DOD contractors manufacturing aircraft seat belts, retractors, restraining harnesses, tie-downs and other end use products.

This Berry-compliant webbing is also a good choice for civilian agencies involved in a wide range of U.S. military procurement activities. BRM’s polyester webbing is in accordance with Mil/PIA-W-25361 and commercial A-A-55242A specifications, as well as application specific requirements that have varied elongation specs. Additionally, all polyester webbing used in seat belts is certified to SAE AS 8043 specification.

Custom designs

BRM can work with your engineering team to provide webbing that meets all requirements, including elongation.

Team members customize weave designs to modify performance properties, offering expert capabilities for custom options and configurations to optimize designs. BRM’s polyester webbing is available in special colors and superior color fastness is guaranteed.

Additionally, BRM’s laboratories provide color matching using advanced spectrophotometer instrumentation to validate color accuracy. Webbing is available in low minimum runs – as low as 1000 yards per color – and in a wide range of widths, from 1-inch to 6-inch. Wider widths are available for specialty applications.
