Scottish industrial textiles producer Don & Low has developed a new range of Daltex nonwoven composite fabrics that combine spunbond nonwovens with innovative reflective foils and metallised films.
The new Daltex fabrics are said to offer a range of strong, flexible and durable reflective nonwovens that can be utilised for a variety of functional and decorative purposes. According to the company the benefits of the new reflective composites include:
- low emissivity, reflective surface that acts as a radiant barrier to improve thermal insulation either to improve heat retention or, alternatively to assist in keeping items cool
- allows the passage of water vapour (breathable) whilst, at the same time, being water repellent
The new range of reflective nonwoven composites can be used in a range of applications including:
- flexible cover or wrap to keep items cool or, alternatively, keep them warm
- decorative reflective material, white on one side and reflective on the other
Don & Low says that some of the new Daltex materials have been validated for use in areas other than construction. If reflective materials are required specifically for construction applications, Don & Low asks interested parties to contact the company directly.
Established way back in 1792, Don & Low is a manufacturer of woven and nonwoven polypropylene industrial textiles. The company has been part of the Thrace Plastics Group, headquartered in Athens, Greece, since 1999 and over the years it has established its reputation based on quality, innovation and customer service.
Don & Low’s extensive range of products is sold internationally, with key markets in Europe and North America. Over 35% of sales go export markets.
