We supply a range of quilted fabric for bulk purchase typically for use in the bedding, upholstery and clothing industries.
Clothing and apparel
Products are available in a variety of materials, including spunbond polypropylene.
Spunbond polypropylene is a textile material that is composed of thermally bonded, continuous filaments in a web-like structure. This gives it a good tear and puncture resistance with high tensile strength in all directions.
The material is strong and light and resists moisture, staining and chemicals. Being constructed of 100% polypropylene it can easily be recycled.
Quilting effects can be produced in the traditional method by sewing with thread, or without thread by the use of ultrasonic energy to induce heat and pressure by vibratory action to join the materials.
There are two different methods of manufacture of ultrasonic bonding of fabric. The first and most common is the plunge mode, where the material is stationary and the weld length is therefore dependant on the size of seam design.
The second method, the continuous mode allows textiles to be joined at different speeds.
The early ultrasonic bonding used for the manufacture of mattress pads and bedspreads was referred to as the pinsonic process, a description still in use today.
The benefits of this type of process are the conservation of energy and improved recyclability of the product as mixed fibres and yarns are not used in the seam production.
