Big Increase in RFL enquiries after Techtextil
Compotex exhibited at Techtextil under the banner of a specialist RFL dipping company, and now, following the show, new enquiries are beginning to come in.
The capacity of EU companies to RFL dip fabric has reduced in the last few years. Many long established companies – many of them both weaving and RFL dipping fabric for the rubber industry – have correctly realised that their regular customers and markets are increasingly under threat from new manufacturers in other parts of the world – most notably Asia.
Faced with a declining market in their volume RFL products, these manufacturers have either stopped offering RFL dipping, or are concentrating their investment and effort in other areas, while continuing to offer RFL for the moment.
Compotex has always been a specialist RFL dipping company, offering special dips for small quantities of fabric for special niche markets. Following Techtextil, we are delighted to offer to develop new RFL products in partnership with the textile and rubber industry.
