Monforts Unveils Coating Unit For Montex Tenter

A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, has developed an integrated coating device for its Montex tenter. The new device, which uses the “knife over air” principle, is suitable for acrylic and silicone paste and foam single-side-coating applications on woven and nonwoven fabrics for a range of purposes including water-repellent sunshades and awnings, pigmented denim and outdoor apparel.

The new coating unit is installed in the Montex tenter’s rail-mounted inlet platform. Coating chemicals are prepared in a mobile foam generator/mixer next to the platform and transferred through an applicator across the coating device, which applies the coating evenly to the fabric. A wider coating device also is available.
