A variety of polyurethane and silicone coatings that are specially formulated for high performance coated fabrics
Coatings have an integral role in the performance and aesthetics of fabrics used to make a wide range of items used by emergency services, the military and within the leisure sector.
Coatings can control the permeability, durability and strength needed to ensure the finished products work correctly every time. This provides users peace of mind, allowing them to focus on their primary role whether this be rescuing people or protecting themselves whilst working in hazardous environments.
Itac manufactures and supplies a variety of polyurethane and silicone coatings that are specially formulated for high performance coated fabrics used in the manufacture of items as diverse as:
• Rescue equipment
• First aid equipment
• Life jackets
Itac work closely with fabric coaters who in turn are working closely with their customers to develop new products or enhance existing ones. We develop a deep understanding of the end use, the way the product is made, and the fabric coating process itself, before proposing an appropriate formulation to meet performance requirements.
Itac draw on many years’ experience in the sector and combine this with expertise in formulating new materials, whilst taking advantage of the latest chemicals available.
Together, we’ll make it happen!
Itac provides real value to the production of new products and the improvement of existing ones. Whether it be maintaining brand image through applying a UV protective coating on an outdoor sign; or applying a light deactivated adhesive for ease and comfort in the removal of medical dressings, Itac can make it happen!
How we do it
Itac recognises that a special application needs a bespoke formulation. Each customer will have subtle differences in the performance level they are striving for, and each coating process will give slighting different results. This often requires unique formulations to be developed.
We listen to customers’ needs before proposing a formulation, and then work closely with the customer through lab tests and small-scale production trials, to modify and refine the formulation, and to optimise product performance.
Our technical team liaise with chemical suppliers to ensure that we are using the latest and best materials. This in turn allows us to bring new ideas and innovations to our customers, enhancing their products in partnership.
