What to Expect from the Industrial Textile Industry in 2018

The industrial textiles industry is key to the manufacturing sector, and our Mauritzon team is proud to be at the forefront of the industry. Over three centuries, with family ownership spanning five generations, our company has manufactured and distributed quality wholesale industrial products across the nation. What can we do for you? Read on to learn more about Mauritzon and the upcoming 2018 textile forecast.

The Last of 2017

Part of planning for 2018 involves revisiting what went right in 2017. With positives like October’s National Manufacturing Day initiative, business across the industry work hard to inspire the next generation of skilled workers.

Product catalogs are also a great way to spread knowledge about a company’s products and capabilities. Our latest product catalog covered our industrial fabrics, awning and marine fabrics, tarpaulins, welding blankets and screens, divider curtains, and athletic covers and dividers.

2018 Predictions for Industrial Textiles

Expectations for the U.S. industrial textile industry are high and we hope to see even further advancements and successes throughout 2018. Industrial textiles have become a more important part of the textile and apparel manufacturing sector over the past few years, and this is not forecast to change.

The wholesale industrial fabrics and textile products we distribute appeal to diverse markets, from automotive and marine to sports and recreational. As the U.S. boating industry continues to unveil innovations and experience growing recreational boat sales, the demand for reliable marine fabrics will grow too. As always, the sports industry remains strong, driven at least in part by an increasing safety-conscious American population. In turn, products such as athletic covers for gyms, martial arts, and soccer fields will be highly sought-after.

Mauritzon textiles are constructed with heavy-duty materials to withstand the toughest elements and environments. Safety will continue to be at the forefront of our minds in everything we craft and distribute in 2018 and beyond, along with ensuring we consistently provide superior service and materials to our customers.

As the New Year Rolls In

The Mauritzon team looks forward to another productive year in the books.

We hope that your New Year is filled with joy and good health!

Vinyl, Polyethylene and Polypropylene Offer Advantages to End-Users of Industrial Textile Products

As summer winds down this month, it’s time to start thinking ahead: It will soon be time to cover our boats, pools and outdoor living furniture to protect them from the unforgiving winter weather. The covers and tarps you will need are manufactured using a variety of industrial fabrics and textiles. These products are made from different kinds of materials, including vinyl, polyethylene and polypropylene. The materials used to manufacture industrial textiles have qualities and features that offer advantages to the end-users of industrial textile products – not to mention they make a world of difference in preparing for next year’s summer season.

Industrial fabrics that are laminated or coated with vinyl Vinyl Imageoffer strength and durability and are also resistant to punctures and tears. Vinyl coated fabrics are often used for industrial and military applications, covering trucks, heavy equipment, fields and more. It’s easy to see why they can also be used for awnings, signs and other outdoor consumer products. You can learn more about the vinyl industrial textiles we offer on our website.

Polyethylene and polypropylene are also used in the manufacturing of industrial fabrics. Both materials are used to create, what is known in the textile manufacturing industry, as olefin. Olefin is a man made fiber generally combined with other fibers to create outdoor fabric blends. In short, the main difference between polyethylene and polypropylene is that they are derived from different chemical compounds, or “monomers.” Polyethylene’s monomer is ethylene; while polypropylene’s monomer is propylene. Polypropylene is also considered to be more stiff and resistant to chemicals and organic solvents than polyethylene. Furthermore, polypropylene is non-stretching and less flexible than polyethylene, as we learn from differencebetween.com.

Products that need to be waterproof, durable, abrasion and UV-Polyethylene Image 2resistant (pool covers, marine covers, roof protectors and many types of tarps) are made with textiles using polyethylene and polypropylene. Mesh industrial fabrics are also made with these materials, offering both strength and breathability.

The above offers only a general overview of the different kinds of industrial textile materials, but you can learn more about industrial textile products made with vinyl, polyethylene and polypropylene by visiting our website.
