Woven fabrics are produced on a loom with warp and fill yarns. ADFORS offers several different styles of weaving – all of which result in a fabric with superior stability. One of our most common weaving styles is the leno weave, where the fill yarns are trapped tightly between two twisting warp yarns, giving excellent integrity at the intersections. This weaving process provides the flexibility of including multiple weaving patterns and/or materials, resulting in a thin, lightweight, uniform and highly efficient product.

Our capabilities allow us to produce the following weave styles:

  • Plain
  • Leno
  • Half leno
  • Mock leno
  • Twill
  • Satin
  • Additional custom styles

Features and benefits* include:

  • Fabrics will not shrink or stretch
  • Non-soluble; won't absorb moisture
  • Breathable and mildew-resistant
  • Fabrics will not decay or decompose
  • Fire-resistant
  • Thermally stable up to 617°C (strain point),  840°C (softening point)
  • Chemical-resistant
  • Corrosion-resistant
  • Strong and dimensionally stable
  • High dielectric strength
  • UV-resistant
  • Efficient thermal conductivity
  • Durable, flexible and economical

ADFORS woven fabrics can be easily fabricated into complex shapes, ranging from architectural fabric structures to industrial expansion joints to automotive heat shields. Please contact us if you would like us to do a dedicated study to identify a particular weaving solution for your needs.
