Cloth backed vinyl won’t work with heat sealing or radio frequency welding services, but commercial sewing can form tight seams for high quality duffel bags, insulated bags, and other products. Many different types of products use cloth-backed vinyl to produce products such as active-duty military bags, vinyl cushions, and seat back covers, along with longer flat products such as vinyl curtains. Commercial sewing can bond and join these products to resist water, air, and other substances from leaking through the material. The commercial sewing process can create products of many different shapes and sizes, and may combine vinyl fabric with other materials.
Products Made Using Fabric-Backed Vinyl
Different types of industrial or commercial curtains may also utilize fabric- backed vinyl materials. There are many different uses for cloth-backed vinyl, ranging from industrial to commercial products. Depending on the grade of the fabric, cloth-backed vinyl can serve as the main component with tensile integrity in heavy use indoor or outdoor furniture. Marine grade vinyl is used to fabricate boat upholstery, awnings, water resistant military bags, and more.
Using Commercial Sewing for Product Fabrication
While heat sealing and RF welding won’t work with uncoated vinyl or cloth materials, commercial sewing can provide secure seams that configure the panels into a functional end product. Our industrial sewing process utilizes automation technology and a product specific quality assurance program to create products that can last for years, whether it’s for small or large products.
Some of the many cloth backed vinyl products we have sewn include protective covers, bags, cases, cushions, point of purchase displays, seat back covers, large graphics, acoustic curtains, military bags, and many more. We can also sew ancillary products, attaching zippers, grommets, snaps, and other hardware to existing products. Commercial sewing is also used on other types of materials including PVC and other synthetic polymers. Some products may require heat sealing, radio frequency welding, and sewing to meet the functionality requirements for the product.
Working with Cloth-Backed Vinyl Products
To find out if cloth backed vinyl is the right material to use for your product during fabrication, AmCraft can assist you with material selection for your products and help with design as well. We can commercially sew a product based on a product sample or CAD drawing. Our engineering staff can also create new CAD drawings through our product engineering program. Please inquire for cost details. Prior to commercial sewing work, we review all drawings and expectations with customers. We also offer prototyping and re-engineering to help improve your product designs and fabrication in the long run.
In addition to cloth-backed vinyl, we also provide commercial sewing, heat sealing, and RF welding services for many other materials including polypropylene, polyethylene, thermoplastic films, PVC coated fabrics, and more. We’ll help you decide which material can form the best possible product, with top-of-the-line fabrication services.
