Hot Melt Laminating
Hot melt lamination combines Dureflex® film with woven, non-woven, and knitted fabrics, as well as other substrates, by applying heat and pressure. These laminates have improved physical strength for wear, puncture, and tear resistance, and have excellent barrier properties that provide water resistance and breathability.
The finished laminate possesses the complementary properties of both the polyurethane film and the fabric. Dureflex® film can also be used as a flexible adhesive with significant tensile properties, bonding numerous numbers of materials in a composite structure.
Applications where Dureflex® film may be hot melt laminated include: automobile cabin head liners; seam seal tapes; inflatable rafts; blood pressure cuffs; emblems; labels; breathable apparel; bullet resistant vests; smart cards (e.g., credit, debit, identification, etc.); radio frequency identification (RFID); conveyance belting; drive belting; and cured in-place pipe rehabilitation (CIPP).
