CFS® APPLICATIONS
CFS has been used for coating, finishing, pigmenting, and moisturizing a wide variety of substrates. Its unique ability to precisely control add-ons and penetrations improves upon pads, vacuum systems, sprays, kiss rolls, print screens, knife coaters, and other wet finishing techniques. A few examples of its flexibility are shown here:
  1. Latex application to nonwoven
  2. Latex coating on back and fluorochemical treatment on face of upholstery material
  3. Latex coating on drapery fabric
  4. Deep, one-sided penetration of binder into trunk liner material, providing a moldable product with a soft outer surface
  5. Binder applied completely through filter material
  6. One-sided resin finishing of apparel fabric
  7. Yarn treatment in slashing application
  8. Hydrophylic treatment of fiber material
  9. Pigmented surface coating on both sides of nonwoven
