UFP Technologies has over 20 years of experience in designing and manufacturing solutions using woven and nonwoven fabrics. Our access to an array of materials and manufacturing capabilities enables us to create specialty fabric composites for our customers. We work extensively in providing fabric composites for the defense industry including uniform and gear components.

Our ability to convert laminated and/or foam only constructions via compression molding, thermoforming or general fabrication allows us to satisfy virtually any requirement. Our laminating and coating technology in both open and closed cell foams, coupled with an extensive knowledge of fabrics, has created UFP Technologies reputation as a market leader.

We have access to a variety of woven and nonwoven fabrics including:

Ballistic
Durable, abrasion-resistant woven nylon material that is, pound for pound, five times stronger than steel. We often combine this material with other fabrics, foams or other substrates for applications such as duty belt accessories for law enforcement.

Circular Knits
Fabrics made from many different materials and used as substrates and backings to reinforce and strengthen a range of flat and molded end products. Features include excellent tensile strength, tear resistance and stretch control.

Pack Cloth
A woven nylon, polyurethane coated waterproof material that's lightweight and relatively easy to sew. It's excellent for recreational equipment such as sport bags, ski bags, lightweight luggage, and backpacks.

Cordura®
A lightweight, durable non-woven nylon, manufactured by DuPont. It's used in a wide range of products that require excellent abrasion resistance, such as backpacks and sport bags, soft-sided luggage, and computer and business cases.

Spandura®
A high-tech fabric combining the toughness of Cordura® with the stretch of Lycra®. Made of Cordura fibers spun around a Lycra core, it provides a level of abrasion resistance never before approached in a stretch fabric.
