What fibers are your webbings made of?
The majority of our webbing is made out of nylon or polyester fibers. We also weave products out of high-performance fibers, such as Kevlar®, Nomex®, Dyneema®, Lycra®, and natural rubber. For additional performance, fibers contact our sales team.
What are your dyeing capabilities?
We have our own dye house on site with Nylon and Polyester dyeing capabilities. We can piece dye, Thermasol dye, or pigment dye webbing
Do you dye to custom colors?
Yes, we can match any color your business needs.
What are your finishing capabilities?
Our finishing department is able to apply all types of finishes such as NanoSphere®, latex finishes, flame retardant chemistry, and anti-static finishes.
Do you hot cut webbing to size?
Yes, please contact a sales representative to find out more details on this feature.
Do you manufacture end products?
We offer a cut and sew department for light assembly. Please contact a sales representative for more information.
Do you manufacture light weight webbing?
We focus on manufacturing medium to heavyweight webbing.
What kind of looms are your webbings manufactured with?
We have a variety of looms including jacquard, needle, and shuttle looms.
What widths do you manufacture?
We currently manufacture items from 1/4 inch to 12 inches. The width ranges manufactured in the Jacquard department are from 3/4 inch to 3 inches.
nIR Technology Capabilities
Lots of customers ask us about nIR technology when developing their product. To make the process smoother for our customers we want to address some of the main hurdles that deal with this Vvlue-added option. First and foremost there is not one universal set of nIR requirements. Every object has its own nIR signature, meaning that every object has a unique reflective property to it. When asking for nIR webbing we are more than happy to meet your standards, however, we need to be given your specific pass/fail criteria per color in each design. These standards approved by you ensure our success in creating a successful product. If you are unsure about how to determine these standards, we can work with you to develop criteria that would best suit your needs. Please contact us today for more information.
Does this webbing have nIR?
This question is a very open-ended one. First and foremost there is not one universal standard of nIR requirements. Every object has its own nIR signature, meaning that every object has a unique reflective property to it. When asking for nIR webbing we are more than happy to meet your standards, however, we need to be given your specific pass/fail criteria per color in each design. Webbing will blend differently when compared to different background surfaces, meaning it will blend in with one background and stand out on another. This is the nature of nIR capabilities. The standards created and approved by you ensure our ability to create a successful product. If you are unsure about how to determine these standards, we can work with you to develop criteria that would best suit your needs. Please contact us today for more information.
What is the difference between nIR and IR?
Near-infrared radiation (nIR) is a section of the IR region in the electromagnetic spectrum. Infrared radiation extends from the nominal red edge of the visible spectrum at 700 nanometers (nm) all the way to 1 mm. The near-infrared region ranges from about 700 nm to 2500 nm, within the larger IR region.
Night vision devices operate through a process involving the conversion of ambient light photons into electrons that are then amplified by a chemical and electrical process and then converted back into visible light. The use of infrared light and night vision devices should not be confused with thermal imaging, which creates images based on differences in surface temperature by detecting infrared radiation (heat) that emanates from objects and their surrounding environment. Thermal imaging is found in the long-wavelength infrared region.
Will this Pass nIR specs?
nIR specs are created specifically for each design and determined per customer. Once given the requirements you need for your product we can meet those standards for you.
Will this break up under night vision goggles?
We design all of our camo webbing to have highs, mediums, and lows when viewed with night vision goggles. To create webbing that blends in with broadcloth, we have to be given a standard. The hurdle of this is that high medium and lows are relative to what they are being compared too. If a broadcloth was not designed with specific nIR ranges, then determining what to match it too becomes unclear.
We can offer a “break up under night vision goggles” if you do not have specific specs. However, we will still need a piece of broadcloth to use as a shade & nIR standards before determining how to take on your project.
I ordered nIR webbing before that matched, and now this new order does not. Why?
Some manufacturers of broadcloth can be inconsistent from lot to lot if they have not been provided with set specs. If during manufacturing a company changes processes like dyes or substrates, trying to match the broadcloth becomes a moving target.
