Our products

Product category: Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)

Fabrics for Defence

Textile products from Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd were first supplied to the British Army during the Boer War and were more recently battle-proven during the Gulf, Bosnian and Afghanistan conflicts, where they were employed in helmets, body armour and vehicles.

Utilising a wide range of fibres including Carbon, Aramid, Nylon, PTFE, Polyester and S2 Glass, we supply into Europe’s leading non-metallic armour and other defence manufacturers. Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd is Europe’s largest weaver of S2 Glass for ballistics.

Our output extends from lightweight reinforcements to highly sophisticated anti-ballistic materials, for which Fothergill Engineered Fabrics Ltd woven aramid, a high modulus fibre of great tensile strength, provides outstanding protection. Flexible and light to wear, it is proven to be five times stronger than steel, weight for weight.

Such is our expertise in developing new solutions for sensitive problems, that we can design fabrics to provide distinctive properties to match our customer’s exact applications.

From protection for forestry workers and refuse collectors to primary armour, bomb blankets and safety screens, our finishing techniques encompass a vast array of specialist characteristics.

Rigorous testing of new products is carried out on our own five metre Home Office approved firing range, where confidentiality is assured.

Fabrics for Aerospace, Reinforcement & Composites

Woven fabrics are manufactured from a wide range of fibres including glass, carbon, aramid, nylon, PTFE and polyester, for supply into the aerospace, reinforcement and composite industries.

Our product range includes industry standard and custom designed specialist woven fabrics for aerospace and high performance composite applications. With a wide range of different fabric styles woven from carbon, aramid and glass fibres, we offer fabrics which are value engineered and provide tailored structural properties.

Bespoke hybrid fabric weave pattern solutions, such as carbon/glass and carbon/aramid, can also be developed in conjunction with our technical team, to satisfy customer specific requirements.

Our range of woven glass fabrics can also be batch heat cleaned with either industry standard or specialist internal proprietary finish treatments. These aid handling, improve adhesion of fibres and provide specific resin compatibility to the chosen matrix.
