Rubber coated fabrics are typically manufactured using either the spread coating or calender coating process. These are flexible composite materials manufactured by applying bonding agents to fabric substrate and precisely coating it with different rubber compounds depending on the end-use of rubber-coated fabrics.
These coated fabrics are further cured to create a strong bond between the fabric and the rubber. It has good stability and is washable, durable and much stronger than uncoated fabrics. Rubber coated fabrics have specific characteristics such as low permeation and diffusion. They can be electrically non-conductive and can also be weather, oil and temperature resistant.
