The industrial fabric refers to any canvas or fabrics, which are used for industrial and commercial purposes other than wearing as personal apparel. It can be used as awnings as a covering above or in front to give a shelter form sun or it can be used as industrial belting or a conveyor. The modern trends in usage of a coarser fabric in many areas considering their availability, cheapness and durability have shown wider applications for industrial fabric. Therefore industrial fabric continues to be dominated the global textile scenario. Starting form a modest coarser canvas cloth, the industrial fabrics now comprises of a wide range of new products like high temperature resistant fabrics, architectural fabrics, coverings, truck covers, tents and marine fabrics. The new additions include desert camouflaging materials, chemical warfare garments, splash spun fabrics, urethane back coated polyester knits, abrasive resistant fabrics, cut resistant gloves, fluorescent & colour fabrics for banners, paint rollers, ink carriers etc. With updated ongoing research and development, more and more new varieties of industrial fabric finding useful applications are bound to be developed and launched shortly. India, being one of the countries where manpower and resources, can cater to a large segment of international market in industrial fabrics. The industrial fabrics like canvas, tarpaulins are consumed in bulk quantities in all user sectors like truck covers, military used, warehousing, tents, fancy bags etc. The existing supply is not able to meet the internal and external demand.
The company is manufacturing two types of products namely Grey canvas and chemically processed canvas proof. Both the products manufactured will be conforming to the respective IS specifications namely followings:
IS: 1422 grey canvas duck
IS: 1424 grey canvas duck
IS: 6803 chemically processed canvas
IS: 7903 HDPE Tarpaulins
As per the standards specified by the IS following quality requirements have been specified for each products.
Common proofed canvas / duck shall be made form cotton duck or cotton canvas conforming to any one for the varieties of IS: 1422 – 19702 or IS : 1424 – 19702 respectively, as agreed between the purchaser and supplier.
Common proofed canvas is manufactured by treating the grey canvas with water proofing chemicals. They impart water proofing properties to the canvas and they are mainly used in water proofing applications such as truck tarpaulins, tents and other covering applications. This is a simple process compared to chemical processing of grey canvas.
The special proofing shall be imported by treating the fabric with a suitable composition, the proofing content not exceeding 15 percent by mass when tested by method as prescribed in A –1.
Note – The proofing mixture shall not contain any ingredient which is liable to damage the proofed canvas or duck.
Resistance to microbial attack – the material shall be rendered resistant to microbial attack by treating with suitable rot – proofing agent.
The proofed material when tested by the pure culture, mixed culture, asperigillus niger and soil burial method prescribed in IS: 1389 – 1959 + shall conform to requirements stipulated against each method.
Note – if it is known that copper of zinc naphthenate has been used as a rot – proofing agent, biological appreciation by the method prescribed in this clause need not be made. The purpose of this clause will be adequately served if copper or zinc content is determined by the method prescribed in A – 2 and the copper content is found to be between 0 – 5 to 0 – 8 percent and zinc content between 0 – 8 to 1 – 0 percent, when calculated on the mass of the proofed fabric.
pH value – The pH value of the aqueous extract of he proofed canvas or duck, when determined according to the method prescribed in IS : 1390 – 1961s, shall between 6.0 to 8.5.
Pliability – special proofed canvas on duck shall be pliable when the sample is kept for 2 hours at 0oC and examined immediately thereafter. The proofing shall show no tendency to crack when folded double and pressed by hand on a flat surface breading strength – the special proofed canvas and duck shall have an average breaking strength not less than 90 percent of the specified value prescribed for the base fabric (see IS: 1422 – 19702 and IS: 1424 – 19702) when tested according to IS: 1969 – 1968.
