Transfer coating

At Sioen Fabrics Coating (Belgium) and Siofab (Portugal), we produce breathable technical textiles. The coating technique used is transfer coating. The coating paste (PU, silicone,...) is applied to the fabric via a paper carrier. Applications are e.g.: protective clothing, shoe protectors, mattress protectors, airbags, furniture, tents and outdoor applications.

Although every fabric has its specific specs, transfer coated fabrics all have main characteristics such as:

  • High quality breathable fabric
  • Plasticizer-free
  • Very soft touch
  • High stretch
  • Antifungal and antibacterial treatment possible
  • Available in 150 cm
  • Possible to countertype your colour
  • High abrasion resistance
  • Halogen-free FR treatment
  • Indoor and/or outdoor use possible
  • Different embossing/grain possible
  • Very good chemical and hydrolysis resistance
