There are 2 major types of laminating fabrics at TDF, TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) and PVC (Polyvinylchloride); both have exceptional performance in the properties of waterproofness, high laminating fastness, tensile strength, anti-tearing, and anti-peeling.
Depending on client requirements, we are able to provide laminating fabrics with exceptional performance in extreme environmental conditions such as resistance to low temperatures, hydrolysis, bacteria, bending, and wear.

TDF is also used to produce Trapaulin, a product with high laminating fastness. Nylon or polyester fabrics (250D-1000D) are laminated with TPU or PVC to give the fabrics high tear-resistance and tensile strength.
