Companies promoting environmental control, need specialized coated textile materials. The challenge for a successful selection is choosing coated textiles with properties that meet final product application requirements. That’s why specialization is required when it comes to environmental control applications. Erez is an experienced coated textiles manufacturer that can tackle environmental control challenges and use cases with many different materials, fit for purpose.

Decisive Factors

Both the underlying base fabric as well as the coating, need to be able to meet the conditions specified for each application. The first major aspect affecting the choice of coated textiles are the environment conditions. These include extreme temperatures, weather, UV stability, presence of chemicals, seawater, and the presence of abrasive dust.

Moreover, to choose the most suitable coated textile product, one should take into consideration the strength and service life required for each application. These factors are important as they can greatly affect the final product’s coated textiles raw material cost. Varying greatly depending on the use case, some products are manufactured for single use in emergencies only, while others on the contrary need to be used over time, sometimes required to endure harsh environment conditions for many years.

A less obvious factor to consider is the ease of manufacturing and working ability offered by the coated textile. Erez coated textiles are both glueable and weldable by HF and hot air welding. Moreover, they are thoroughly tested to ensure conformance to specifications and are approved by standard certification bodies internationally.

Coated Textiles for Environmental Control Applications

Erez offers a full range of coated textiles for environmental control applications. Available in a wide range of base fabric and coatings, these are best in class materials used in oil booms, barriers, flood and spill protection, spill control, berm liners & secondary containment, and inflatable dams.

Base fabrics include various types of nylon or polyester, available at a range of weights and strengths. Coatings include polymers such as TPU, PVC, and EVA/PVC, or PVC/PU polymer alloy blends. Depending on the application, TPU coated textiles offer high performance and are suitable for end products that require increased durability and longer lifespan. On the contrary, PVC coated textiles are more suitable for environmental control applications where lower durability and shorter lifespan are adequate.

Lastly, every type of Erez coated textile is extensively tested for a complete range of properties covering strength, coating adhesion, porosity, flame & abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, and temperature stability.

Erez has been supplying coated technical textiles to top brands in the environmental control industry worldwide. Used in spill containment and offshore preventative measures, Erez has been a world leader for over 30 years in the production of innovative coated textiles for environmental control products.
