Water Proofing Finishing of Textile Fabric - Textile Learner. “Waterproofing is nothing but preventing the passage of both air and water through a fabric.” Purpose of Water Proofing:For certain uses such as Tarpaulin, Umbrella cloth, Rain coat fabrics etc., it is required to give this type of finish as these type of fabrics are generally used against the air and water in the normal life. So they should have some property to prevent both air and water passing through them. This finish makes the wearer feel uneasy and uncomfortable as the air circulation is not there. Principle of Water Proofing: A film on the surface of the fabric should be formed for the prevention of air and water. When a uniform coating of suitable substances such as rubber is produced on the surface of a fabric, the interstices between the warp and weft yarns are blocked by the continuous film or substance and both water and air not pass through the treated fabrics.

It is a chemical and property giving finish. Method:By two methods it can be carried out: Disadvantage: Advantage: E. Cordura fabric. Leather Craft - Letterpress.

YKK makes virtually the same zipper as the RiRi AquaZip.

They call it the YKK Aquaseal and it's been around for several years now…at least 3 years. I think the real question, is why don't we see more of these waterproof toothed zippers that are significantly better than the urethane coated zips that are so prominent today. These new toothed zippers that seal with rubber between the teeth are much better because they are truly waterproof and they zip up with much less drag, like a normal zipper. I think eventually these types of zippers will totally take over and the answer to why we don't see more is simply because the industry is really slow to change. I know Helly Hansen has been using the YKK Aquaseal zips in their top line (Odin) for a few years. Waterproof Fabric Guide.

Probably one of the best known types of waterproof fabric. Suggested uses: As oil cloth contains phthalates it isn’t intended for projects for children under 12. PUL fabric is a special fabric because not only is it waterproof but it is also breathable. PUL has 2 sides to it, one side is made from a polyester knit which means it has a slight stretch which is great for clothing as you get a bit of “give”, important when you’re moving around as there’s less chance of a seam giving way under stress. TIP - Sewing will leave little holes in the fabric which water can escape through.

Sandwich PUL. Waterproof vs Water-Resistant, explained. I used to think that I needed a waterproof bag… Why? Because I did. Because I had to have one. My “amazing” adventures and my life demanded it. The important and expensive things I carried must never ever get wet, never. I wanted that assurance, that if there were a sudden tropical rainstorm, my tech gear would be perfect, no questions asked, no matter how hard the rain came. Now, with personal experience and via my professional experience… I’ve realized, this is ridiculous.

Let’s explore the differences between Waterproof and Water-Resistant. Waterproof means the bag can be submerged completely underwater for long periods of time, and there won’t be one single drop of water that enters the interior. The process of making a bag 100% waterproof can be achieved a few different ways. The materials, obviously, have to be 100% waterproof. Also, be prepared to have a relatively odd-looking bag on your shoulders or at your hip. Lastly, the access options for these bags are limited. Image credits: Cloth on Osborne: FAQ #1: What is the difference between PUL and ProCare? PUL on the left, ProCare on the right I’ve been getting this question a lot lately, so I thought I’d write some thoughts on the subject. First let me say a little about my decision to offer both products as waterproof linings in my wet bags.

It all started when I began making snack bags for my daughter. I was constructing them out of PUL with the non-shiny side facing the pouch where the food would go. Shortly after I started making these I was bombarded by information stating PUL was not food safe and that I should NOT be using it for snack bags. What?! At the same time I was also doing a lot of research on 2mil PUL. I wanted to offer something to my customers that was a heavier weight waterproof lining, but I didn’t want to have to charge more for the product.

Here are a few words on ProCare and PUL- I hope it helps to distinguish the two. PUL stands for polyurethane laminated fabric. PUL on the left, ProCare on the right I think I can summarize with the following: Impact Gel - Raw Gel. Fashion Archive. Bags | What Drops Now. An Explanation Of Engineering Terms. An Explanation Of Engineering Terms Q: I was looking over our copy of the engineer's calculations last weekend, but it seemed like they were written in a foreign language. Is there a glossary somewhere to tell me what all these terms and/or symbols mean? A: The following list may be of help to you. Remember that one of the main activities of engineering is the discovery, attribution and distribution of force throughout a structure. Terms : Kip, Moment, Reaction, Shear, Modulus of Elasticity and Fiber Stresses.

Kip :: In the English system, we use pounds to describe weight and feet or inches to describe distance. Moment :: A way of describing a force acting at a distance. In each instance, the units are expressed as "distance" times "force"; foot-pounds of "Moment". Reaction :: This is a fancy way of referring to the amount of weight an element contributes to a particular location.

Shear :: A type of force which wants to make adjacent materials move past each other. Summary. Lapcon Cabinet Lid Support-Heavy-Duty. Kobi Blocks - Not Found. Friction hinge - max. 4.5 Nm | QM7, QM10, QM12 series - LEECO Technologies Corporation.
