Double-walled fabrics: back to the basics
The construction of double-walled fabrics is a new concept. The surfaces of the fabric are connected by vertical pile fibers. Basically, there are tons of fine polyester threads that are woven into the bottom of the base material to ensure that there is no overfilling when the maximum length of the threads is exceeded. In this article we get a deeper insight into double-walled fabrics. Read on to find out more.
There are many reasons to use polyester. For example, it is durable, strong, and has little stretch. Therefore, the double-walled fabrics can offer high durability, integrity and durability. Apart from that, the space can be filled with foam to synergistically support the vertical posts.
On the other hand, the double-walled fabric is an ideal choice for swimming pools, mattresses, boat floors and inflatable SUPs. The reason for this is that they have weather resistance, anti-aging performance, self-cleaning, high stability, high quality and high strength.
Types of raw materials:
There are primarily two types of raw materials when it comes to drop stitch material. They are called woven knitting and warp knitting. Below is a description of both types for your understanding.
Woven against warp knitting
The warp knit type is the most widespread type that covers a wide range of inflatable products. And this guy has one thread on one end and then two threads on the second end. The warp knitting machine is also a small setup, costs little and offers a high production speed. This enables manufacturers to achieve lower raw material costs. On the other hand, this type has some disadvantages. A disadvantage is that the weight of the material is quite high.
On the other hand, the woven base fabric is an ideal choice for inflatable products. The reason for this is that inflatable products cannot stand the test of time if they are not stiff enough. In fact, they should offer superior stiffness for the best performance.
The difference between this type and the other type is that there is only one thread that connects two layers of the base fabric. However, the cost of building the base fabric is much higher than building the warp knitting. In general, the cost is four to five times higher. In addition, the production speed is also slower. So that’s a disadvantage. The main advantage of this construction, however, is that the weight of the woven base fabric is 30 to 40 times less than that of warp knitting.
The double-walled fabric uses:
There are many uses for double-walled fabric. However, some of the most common uses are listed below.
• Inflatable dock systems
• Inflatable docks
• air path
• water mat
Apart from these, there are many other uses of this type of fabric. However, these are the most common uses.
