coverings for crop protection. There are different procedures for the coating of textiles and not all are suitable for all products or substrates. that with there rotation break and smoothen the coating to obtain a layer with a uniform thickness.Textile Coating By: Carme Salgado TECNITEX INGENIEROS S. knife. fencing. polyamide. which is later transferred to the textile substrate. allowing fabrics that are smoother and of a better drape to be made. which is based on the application of one or various layers of polyurethane. A similar process is the coating that is done by foam flattening. which consists of the application of one or various layers of a polyurethane paste onto non-stick paper or separator. polyester and EVA. The possible uses of coated fabrics are many. The difference between this and the former method is that the solid content in the foam compound is greater. but also the spaces in between them. using the extrusion method for polyolefins. In the civil engineering field they are used as geotextiles for soil waterproofing in landfills. which consists of the impregnation of the fibres. with applications in agriculture: containers. The different characteristics between the substrate and the coating product are combined to produce a new structure that acquires the best properties of each component: fabric and resin. Foam coating consists of submerging the textile material in a bath which contains the foam compound using a solution or a watery dispersion and afterwards draining off the excess liquid. To get articles known as "artificial leather". etc. One of the procedures most used is direct coating. Textile coating can be defined as the process of depositing a resin over a textile substrate. their application can be found in waterproofing materials for covers or in textile architecture. Finally. The process of coating via polyurethane coagulation implies a solution of polyurethane and its later extraction under controlled conditions for its precipitation or coagulation.L. there is the Hot Melt coating. using a scraper.
