Samples of our Advanced Products includes circular (polar) weaves, woven 2-D and 3-D near net shapes, fabrics used for parachute, air frame, and aerospace applications. The air frame components are made from lightweight carbon fibers. Carbon fiber structures are stronger and lighter than the metal used in traditional air frame construction.

Bally Ribbon Mills will also display industrial products that include non-compacting bridge bearing support fabric, conductive and anti-static fabrics, fabrics used to construct greaseless (self-lubricating) bearings, controlled porosity fabrics used in bag, air, and liquid filtration applications, and safety harnesses and laynards.
