Glue bonding - Fashion & Footwear
Glue bonding or glue lamination
Glue bonding or glue lamination is the process of fusing two or more fabrics or film substrates together using a thermoplastic heat activated film glue. Material and glue are sent through rollers to create a strong, even bond throughout the product.
Utilising our strong partnership with suppliers B&R Converters we can source a wide range of different glues which suit the required application.
For example, lighter weighted thermoplastic adhesives promote stretch for upholstery fabrics whereas heavier glues sit well within the industrial applications.
And, using deniers and Cerex allows fabrics to be strengthened in order to promote a more durable, easy to use product
Bonding for better fabric solutions
The process of fusing fabrics and materials, whether the same or different, creates a permanent bond between two or more substrates.
This process is often referred to as gluing or glue bonding.
Glue bonding is a technique which applies an intermediate layer to connect substrates of different types of materials. The connections produced can be soluble or insoluble.
The resulting product combines the best features of each to create a reinforced product with enhanced durability, puncture resistance and stiffness.
The most advanced heat and pressure activated glue film technology
We routinely bond products such as Vinyl, PVC, Leather, Ultra-Suede, Alcantara and many natural and synthetic fabrics.
