Leading Manufacturer, Supplier & Retailer of Textile Grade LDPE Powder, ldpe powder and Automotive Grade LDPE Powder.
Thermoplastic powders are used in the textile industry as adhesives. Product examples include: laminating furniture leather or imitation leather to felt or foam sheet backings, shirt collars that are fixed and reinforced a with fine powder layer, technical textiles for clothing that benefit from the adhesive layer being discontinuous and breathable, geotextile laminates with non woven layers, automotive fabrics for seating, door lining or noise insulation around the engine. Powders are used in many diverse markets, much of their usage is linked to non woven fabric processing. For some users, even the non woven fluff itself is bonded together with the powder working as a commingled binder. The methods used for applying the powders onto textile fabrics either woven on non woven is scatter coating, powder dot or paste dot.
Carpets are backed with flexible plastics for various reasons. In the Automotive sector the layer of LDPE makes the carpet “thermoformable”. This means that the carpet can be hot pressed into the shape desired and it has enough rigidity to stay in that shape in service and processing. For both domestic and automotive carpet, the powder layer provides another function that of an adhesive-locking the carpet fibres down so that during service the fibres cannot be pulled out of the carpet. Some manufacturers use the powder adhesive to glue other non-woven fabrics onto the carpet as a non-slip or finishing under layer. Carpet Backing Process : Coarse powders of typically Polyethylene (LDPE) are scatter coated onto the reverse of a carpet that then moves slowly through a series of infra-red heating ovens. The powder layer, which is a thermoplastic, melts onto the back of the carpet and works like a glue to laminate other backing fabric/roll materials. The whole laminate is then cooled and solidified and the carpet is then rolled up and made ready for shipping.
