Another exciting year at IFAI EXPO 2016!

by Annie 27. October 2016 09:01


And another year at the IFAI EXPO is under our belt! We kicked off our biggest show of the year last week with a bang, bringing in a new booth and nine team members for the 2016 show in Charlotte, NC. There is no doubt that getting together with all of our industry family is one of our favorite things – and it's the one thing that hasn’t changed since we started exhibiting at IFAI EXPO many years ago.

This year at the show, we debuted a new hanging sign, a new booth design, and some bright blue carpet. In addition, three members of our growing team got to experience the show for the first time. Some of the things that we showed off in our booth this year:

1.       MultiCam® Printed Narrow Fabrics

We have been talking about this stuff all summer long because we are that excited about. We have six different variations of this line – all in MultiCam®. This line highlights our commitment to the military industry as it features the MMI-created patent-patent pending CTEdge™. In addition, we can print patterns and logos on narrow fabrics of practically all kinds.

 

2.       Coated Aramid Thread

This thread is really strong – no joke. It is comparable to the strength of a bolt. Our thread is recommended for use where exposure to moisture, abrasion, environmental contaminants or cut-hazard would be likely to cause failure in traditional threads of equal size.  Some of its features are:

·         Non-Absorbent

·         100% wet strength after 6 months’ immersion in sea water

·         High break strength (80 lbs in size 138)

·         High abrasion resistance

·         High UV resistance (approx. 30% strength loss after two years’ exposure)

·         High resistance to solvents, bleach and hydrocarbons

 

3.       Fabric, lots of it! 

      Shocker, right? Well, we highlighted a few of our favorite this year – but we have so many options. I’ll save you from reading the entire list but whether it is 200D polyester, 1050D ballistic nylon, or a custom ripstop to foam lamination – we have you covered. Our robust line up of woven fabrics coupled with our ability to also provide webbing, hook and loop, labels, zipper, knits, elastic, cord, and tape makes us a cut above the rest.

 

As we get ready to welcome in the holiday season and closeout 2016, IFAI EXPO is always one of our favorite memories. And if we missed you at our booth this year, don’t worry. We would love to chat and find out how we can help you. Just shoot us an email at info@mmitextiles.com or call us at 440-899-8050. 

AUSA 2016 Recap

by Annie 6. October 2016 09:52


The MMI team traveled to Washington, DC for the annual AUSA Expo and annual meeting. One of our favorite shows of the year, the 2016 show was no different. During the expo, we got to be a part of IFAI’s booth space and had a great time. Being members of the Industrial Fabrics Association International allows us many benefits, including getting a chance to exhibit at AUSA which we are grateful for.

As you may know, we take our relationship with the military and tactical industry very seriously. So when we get the chance to come together with a lot of members of that industry, we get pretty excited. We got to show off and tell people about our new line of MultiCam® and OCP printed narrow fabrics. There are similar products to the one MMI now offers but the differences and benefit to MMI’s are significant.

MMI’s webbing and binding tape offer the patent-pending CTEdge™. This advanced edge design gets rid of the glaring white edge that many would notice when the webbing and tape were used in vests, bags, and more. The CTEdge™ conceals the white edge, making it blend much more than any previous versions of this webbing and tape.

In addition to the advanced webbing and tape, the line also offers zipper, elastic, and woven loop. All of these products meet military specs and are Berry compliant. While this new line is what we are most recently talking about the most – we’re able to offering lots of different products to the manufacturers of military products. Things like mil-spec webbing, berry compliant hardware, hook and loop, and elastic are all options that we can provide solutions to for military applications and end uses.

After a successful AUSA 2016 and an upcoming IFAI Expo 2016 (come see us at Booth #A1035) – the MMI team is busy and excited for it all. If you missed us in Washington DC, don’t fret – we’ll get the chance to talk our new printed narrow line with you or anything else on your mind.
