Monforts’ coating competence at Techtextil 2019
Monforts will demonstrate a number of enhancements that have recently been made to its texCoat and Allround coating units at the forthcoming Techtextil show in Frankfurt from 14-17 May.
In a major development for the coating of technical textiles and nonwovens, Monforts is now offering the coating roller for its texCoat and Allround coating units as an optional carbon fibre version, in order to meet even the highest level of coating accuracy that is being demanded by the most exacting customers today.
“The carbon rollers provide the extreme stiffness necessary to deal with the winding tension required in the processing of materials such as prepregs for composites and other heavyweight fabrics, but at the same time, a significant improvement in coating accuracy is achieved, even for very lightweight flexible materials,” explained Jürgen Hanel, Monforts Head of Technical Textiles. “In addition, the surfaces of the rollers are protected against both abrasion and damage from aggressive chemicals by a special ceramic coating.” A further benefit is that the rollers are much easier to clean, he adds.
