P.U Coating

We’ve talked about what PU coating on fabric is. Polyurethane fabrics are breathable and lightweight. Clothing made with PU coating will hold properties even when it’s gone through the washer and dryer over 100 times. The material will not be harmed or come apart. Hospitals were the original intention of PU coating on the fabric as hospitals require reusable materials on bedding and scrubs. Polyurethane is durable and waterproof, and hospitals especially are one place where strong and waterproof fabrics are not just a “like to have” – they are a must. PU coating on fabric is useful to create a variety of thicknesses. It is one of the most versatile structures on the market. The thickness of the material generally depends on its intended use. The fabric can be thinner in diapers as opposed to fabrics used for camping gear. But, either way, it remains as durable and waterproof as it needs to be. Polyurethane fabric can be fire-retardant, airtight, and abrasion/humidity resistant. It is suitable for a variety of applications. It’s flexible enough to be used on more than one kind of material. Manufacturing companies tend to use it on one side of the material rather than both sides.
