MMI Attends SHOT Show 2016

by Debbie 26. January 2016 15:10

 

 Another year of SHOT Show is under our belt. The MMI team traveled to Las Vegas for the annual show focusing on all things shooting, hunting, and outdoors. We enjoy coming together with people from our industry, learning new things, and getting to tell the rest of the world about the exciting things going on in the MMI offices. Not to mention, getting out of Cleveland in January is not something we usually pass up.  This year at SHOT, we focused on showing off a few different things including:

Wolf Gray
Unequal® Military
PenCott™ Camo 
Our vast line of military fabrics 

 

All of these things are widely popular throughout the industry and we were even able to spot a few items at SHOT Show 2016 that we had a hand in producing. These boots were made with PenCott™ Camouflage that we provided. It's pretty exciting for us to see end products that we had a part of like these boots. Additionally, we can provide hardware, labels, and rope and cord


If we didn’t get the chance to see you at SHOT, we would love the opportunity to get the chance to talk with you about the new, exciting, and innovative things happening at MMI Textiles, Inc
. As you may know, our first priority is customer service and getting you the best product as quickly and as simply as possible. Call us at 440.899.8050 or shoot us an email at info@mmitextiles.com to get in touch or find out how we can help you. 

MMI Attends Zone 7 Canvas Products Association Conference

by Annie 11. December 2015 14:19

 

On December 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, MMI Textiles attended the Zone 7 Canvas Products Association Conference in Independence, Ohio. The show was mainly attended by vinyl manufacturers, vinyl suppliers, and awning manufacturers. It was a great show and gave us an opportunity to meet some new faces within the industry.

Manufacturing Advocacy & Growth Network (MAGNET) had a great presentation on how to improve not only work efficiency, but also improve the work environment and the people within it. The conference also included a tour of Ohio Awning. Andy Morse and Ohio Awning have a great facility and there is definitely exciting things happening there.

Friday’s “Market Day” was filled with tradeshow activities and we were able to tell and show many attendees our vinyl coated polyesters and meshes with all attendees. Our products not only serve the awning and tent industries, but also for tarps, cargo, dock seal, inflatable boats, agricultural uses, roll up doors, and many other outdoor and indoor applications.  

We offer many varieties of woven fabrics, hook and loop, rope and cord, labels, webbing, and labels. For more information on any of our products or to find out how we can help you and your textile needs visit our website, www.mmitextiles.com or give us a call at 440.899.8050.

The 2 Different Kinds of Labels and Why You Need to Know the Difference

by Annie 18. November 2015 09:56

Labels are like snowflakes and sadly, in Cleveland we know too much about snowflakes. But back to the point, we don’t think that any two labels are the alike. They come in so many colors, different materials, shapes, and sizes that it can be hard to pick out the kind you want and need. Let’s break down the options to help make this process simpler.

Printed

We can get you printed labels that are both domestic and imported. We have stock on standard size, Made in the USA, and care labels for immediate delivery. 

Custom labels can be produced in 3 to 4 weeks and we can even create a stock program for your custom labels which helps with any problems that you may have with getting them as soon as possible!

We can also print on ribbons, elastics, webbing, and on virtually any material – natural or man made such as cotton, poly-cotton, vinyl, webbing, canvas, and more!

And because we love to stay attuned to what our customers want we are now offering labels printed on organic cotton!

Woven

MMI imports its woven labels from South America and our factory has one of the most prestigious plants and operates on state-of-the-art equipment to weave labels from the best fabrics. We do have minimums and the lead time for these is usually 2 to 3 weeks. Some of our special effects include:

  • Embossing
  • Laser cutting
  • 3D
  • Reflective
  • Pressure Sensitive (sticky backed)

Note that there are minimums and details that go along with this but if you are interested, we would love to fill you in on the details and figure out how to make it work for you.

The process usually includes sending an art file with graphics and dimensions and we will figure out what the label will be put on and any other special requirements so that we can get you exactly what you need!

As always if you need labels of any kind or you have any questions, give our team a call at 440.899.8050!

How to select the right coating for your application

by MMI Textiles 21. February 2013 08:55

The process of coating fabrics goes back to the 18th century with the production of oilcloth.  Fabric was coated with linseed oil; thus the fabric was made water resistant.  The coating of a fabric gives the textile a property it did not have on its own.

Today we can see coated fabrics all around us.  From waterproof camping gear, UV protected window shades, protective clothing for fire fighters to the inflatable chutes on aircraft, coated textiles have important applications to our everyday lives.

In order to get the fabric and coating combination correct, consider the final application.  For example, will the product need to be water resistant, mildew resistant, fire retardant, and breathable or any combination of these?  Let’s consider a military application like a backpack; a backpack would need to be water resistant. A boat cover calls for water, mildew resistance and breathability.  It is very important to consider your total requirements for the application.

There are many options when is comes to fabrics and coatings. Finding the right combination for your project is the key to success.
