Compotex offers customers the special service of dipping narrow tapes and braids. Widths are often in the range 50mm to 250mm.
For narrow woven tapes, the big difference is the edge of the fabric. No longer is there a weak point in the fabric at the edge, there is no fraying and the chemical treatment has no failure point where it is cut.
This machine technology is applicable for many of the Compotex treatments – both for rubber adhesion and for heat protection.
For braids, only dips that are not sticky can be used. This is particularly useful for glass and silica braids which require a higher temperature rating after dipping in vermiculite, silica or graphite treatments.
With this customer specific technology, we recommend trials for all these specialist development projects.
