Darlington Fabrics is launching warp-knit stretch fabrics with fire retardancy. Made of polyester and spandex, these fabrics come in a range of weights and widths. Flame-retardant applications include dramatic arts, display materials, military, flags, industrial protection and safety.
Also new to the product line is UBL, or unbroken loop fabric, which offers stretch paired with hook-receptive durability. Up to a 25 percent improvement in shear, and more than 40 percent improvement in peel tests, the warp knit loop fabrics are colorfast, washable and soft.
