Technical textile treatments
We are a European group of companies that dip technical textiles. Our special expertise is in two areas:
Adhesion of fabrics to rubber
All our treatments are water based. We are market leaders in the practical application of water based technology in the rubber industry. We offer water based alternatives to solvents for almost all calendering and lay up reinforced rubber parts.
Compotex prepares nylon, polyester, para-aramid, meta-aramid, cotton and vectran fabrics for rubber adhesion and reinforcement. Sulphur curing and peroxide curing rubber is fully covered by Compotex bonding technology.
Our partnerships with many chemical companies are long lasting and with excellent technical interaction.
Heat protection treatments on glass and silica fabrics
We offer treatments and dip coatings for heat, fire and insulation products. The Compotex range covers vermiculite, silica, graphite and weavelocking.
Most dipped fabric is with glass fabrics. We are also experts in processing silica fabrics, particularly with vermiculite and graphite dips.
We have a large range of specifications to cover different industries.
Compotex works closely with many companies on a confidential basis for specific products. Whether that is textile manufacturers, rubber companies or heat protection companies, Compotex fills a vital part in the complex supply chain that is standard for European advanced manufacturing.
Customers value our ability to Commission Manufacture as an important part of their process. This partnership working, between textile manufacturers and the final manufacturer, is a key part of our offer to you. Our advanced manufacturing and the trust we build with our customers ensures the success of our approach and your process.
Our advanced manufacturing capability allows us to manufacture with almost no wastage and scrap. Working on commission means that the amount of fabric that comes in is the amount of fabric that goes out. This is very important when you have the greater fabric cost compared to Compotex’s dipping cost.
We always seek to reinforce the trust in our business relationships. We never compete with them and recognise our critical part in their complex supply chain.
“For bonding textiles to silicone rubber, there’s no better company to ask than Compotex.”
