If you manufacture PVC hoses, tarpaulins, dinghies or rain coats, the EMS Griltex copoylesters provide significant manufacturing advantages, cost reductins and process improvements.

The copolyester ahesives are used in the manufacturing of:

- PVC hoses
- Truck tarpaulins
- Tent tarpaulins
- Tarpaulin for roofing
- Dinghies
- Rain wear

The EMS Copolyester can be used as a replacement for PVC glue. And it results in the following benefits:

- No heat activiation of the PVC is necessary (meaing you save on equipment and energy costs). And you can achieve 50% higher production speeds.
- Use of thinner PET yarns is possible. Meaning less interupption to production speeds.
- Yarn become more tightly glued to the inner hose. This gives higher burst levels (between 21 and 28 bar).
- Higher adhesion forces. This allows you to reduce the glue layer in the hose or between the bonded surfaces.

For more information on how EMS Griltex's copoylester for replacing PVC in hoses and tarpaulins, call Tom Mallens at Fibrecore on +44 (0)1926 315 885 or email: tom@fibrecore.uk.com.
