Double-Wall Fabrics: Back to Basics

The construction of double-walled fabrics is a new concept. The fabric surfaces are connected to each other with vertical fleece fibers. Basically, it’s a ton of thin polyester threads woven into the underside of the base fabric to make sure that when the threads reach their maximum length, there won’t be over-inflation. In this article, we will take a closer look at double-walled fabrics. Read on to find out more.

There are many reasons to use polyester. For example, it is durable, strong and has a low degree of stretch. Thus, double-walled fabrics can offer great resistance, integrity and durability. In addition, the interstitial space of the structure can be filled with foam providing synergistic support for the vertical piles.

Double walled fabric, on the other hand, is the perfect choice for pools, mattresses, boat bottoms, and inflatable SUPs. The reason is that they are weather-resistant, anti-aging, self-cleaning, excellent stability, high quality and high strength.

Types of raw material base fabric:

When it comes to the material for droplet embroidery, there are mainly two types of base fabrics. They are called woven and warp knitting. Below is a description of both types for your understanding.

Woven vs. Warp

The type of warp knitting is the most commonly used type which covers a wide spectrum of inflatable products. And this type has one strand at one end and then two strands at the other end. In addition, the warp knitting machine is small, costly, and offers a high production speed. As a result, producers can enjoy lower raw material costs. On the other hand, this type has some disadvantages. One drawback is that the weight of the material is quite high.

The woven base fabric, on the other hand, is the perfect choice for inflatable products. The reason is that inflatable products cannot stand the test of time if they are not rigid enough. In fact, they should offer excellent stiffness to ensure the best performance.

The difference between this type and the other type is that it only has one thread that connects the two layers of the base fabric. However, the cost of the set of the woven base material is significantly higher than the set of the warp knitting. Generally the cost is 4 to 5 times higher. Besides, the production speed is also slower. So that’s the downside. However, the main advantage of this system is that the weight of the woven base fabric is 30 to 40 times less than that of a warp knitting.

Double wall fabric uses:

There are many uses for a double-walled fabric. However, we’ve listed some of the most common uses below.

• Inflatable dock systems

• inflatable docks

• Air track

• Water mat

In addition, there are many other uses for this type of fabric. But these are the most common uses.

Here is a brief description of double-walled fabrics. If you want to know more, you can consult a professional. It will help you learn more about it.
