Precision Custom Coatings, a Totowa, NJ-based producer and supplier of nonwoven and coated fabrics for the apparel industry and industrial market applications, has added a second needlepunch production line in its North East, MD facility. The investment more than doubles production capacity at the site, which PCC acquired from GlobeTec Incorporated in December 2005.
The new production line is capable of manufacturing needlepunched fabrics in widths up to 180 inches and weights ranging from 2 to 50 ounces. It is equipped to produce dual-layered fiber blends and can incorporate structural scrims on the exterior or even between layered fabrics. The potential product applications are virtually limitless ranging from uses in air and liquid filtration to wipes and pipe liners.
