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.

It is our commitment to do the work for you and to answer all of your questions as seamlessly as possible.

Nylons, Polys, and Cottons, Oh My!

by Annie 16. September 2015 09:38

We love woven fabrics at MMI and sometimes it’s important to stop talking about all the new stuff in our industry and get back to talking about what makes us who we are.  Cottons, nylons, and polyesters come in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors that it is hard for us to talk about just one. We can provide you with over 50 stock fabrics, but we also specialize in custom woven fabrics that are dyed and finished to meet your specifications.

10oz single fill duck, 1050D Ballistic Nylon, and 70D Polyester are just a few of our favorites. Those are such a small sampling of our commercial inventory, without even dipping into our military stock and customs. We know that our customers have many questions from lead time to dye warehouses, so check out our FAQ’s or give us a call and we can expand on anything you are unclear on.

Along with the fabrics we provide, we are proud of the fact we offer additional value added services. Custom specific stocking programs gives you the ability to have the fabric while not having to worry about where to put it. No matter where you are in the process, MMI wants you to have the best finished products as possible. With our decades of experience, we have seen it all. From commodity to custom, large volume to relatively small, we have the expertise to source your finished products and deliver them to you in a cost effective manner.

End of story, we will work as hard as we can to find out what you need, and how we can accommodate you. And if we can’t get you exactly what you want, when you need it we will try and find someone who can.

Call us at 440.899.8050 or send us a quick email to info@mmitextiles.com so that we can start working together on your project.

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.
