Engineered Textiles: RTU and Custom


Let’s get technical for a moment. To provide the very best in reinforcements and processing aids for the rubber products industry, Milliken combines our expertise in textile surface chemistry and the physics of reinforcing dynamic elastomer systems to produce one of the most extensive product portfolios in the marketplace. Our research and development enables us to create high-performance products that increase manufacturing efficiency and deliver superior value. We offer highly specified fabrics for hoses, belts, and military equipment. We manufacture reinforcements for diaphragms, seals, bead lock, car seats and many everyday (and not-so-everyday) products. One specialized example: our textiles are used in the fuel tanks of fighter aircraft.
