If you’re a manufacturer, give your product a powerful point-of-differentiation in a crowded marketplace
From cut or heat resistance to electrically-charged material, Tuff-n-Lite® can work with you to develop innovative products for specialty or niche markets.
We actually manufacture the yarn so we have the capabilities of specially designing a product that will best suit you and your customers needs
. Tell us what properties your ideal product would have and we’ll mix the proper fibers to accomplish your objective.
For example, lets say you need a material that’s cut resistant, flame resistant and needs to have wicking properties. We can do it
How about if your ideal material was chemical and abrasion resistant
with a slight degree of elasticity and microbial or bacterial protection.
We can do it
UHMWPE, aramid, polyester, spandex, glass or stainless steel are a few of the many specialty fibers that can be used to create distinctive blends of Tuff-n-Lite® specifically designed to meet the properties needed.
Tuff-n-Lite® with Olefin is our largest-selling cut-and-abrasion-resistant composite. As the world’s strongest, lightest cut and abrasion resistant material, it has some other extraordinary attributes, too:
- Superior abrasion, cut & tear resistance
- Can be died to match any color
- Incredible UV-light resistance
- Outstanding flexibility
- Water resistance and moisture resistance
- Superior comfort
- Superior breathe-ability
- Long wearing
- Low lint
- 15 times stronger than steel
- May be washed, bleached or disinfected without harm
- Resists oil, saltwater, saline and acids
Although our popular Tuff-n-Lite® with Olefin has excellent properties, Tuff-n-Lite® is substituted with an Aramid fiber instead when high-heat applications -- between 220 and 900 degrees Fahrenheit -- are required.
If maximum abrasion resistance is not needed -- and low cost is imperative
-- we can engineer Tuff-n-Lite® with more common core products such as fiberglass or stainless steel. A composite made this way will retain most of Tuff-n-Lite’s® high-performance fiber attributes.
These are just a few of the options that we have to create a
Tuff-n-Lite® composite material that fits your needs and budget
