Fun fact seeker? Great! Today we’re looking at polyester and synthetics…

Our executive summary — let me explain — today’s insights come from unusual posts that my assistant and I swa in our morning surf online. Hey, the information we found today will be of great interest to those who love posts has tons of info in our favorite scientific arenas.

We have even more — let me be honest, my friends — to share on our branded site. So if you’d love better detailed content, then tap on the one right here: Polyester distributor.

Okay, let’s get into it:

Yes my friends, I am your commercial fabrics guy, and I have yet more insightful applications of textiles to lay on you. Are you new to this group? Well then, Hello! Roger Howard here, I’m your quirky blogger, ready to share all we uncovered this week.

1 inch web material is what I’m all about, so it may be a bit of a surprise to you that I only found two topics of interest: polyester manufacturer and webbing manufacturer.

As always, if you prefer to watch videos, that’s no problem! I’m building a list of relevant videos that will give a bit more depth and insight to commercial fabric manufacturing processes, and plan to include those in my posts in the coming days.

I have to say that I prefer the written word (because I like to study this type of material line by line, and take notes on how I’ll add new options for our clients’ real-world webbing applications!).

That’s enough delay, right? So here is what I am eager to share today. This article provides great background and insight to the science behind 2-inch webbing roll:

It’s just the way it is in the automotive webbing industry that businessmen like us have to network and build out our connections each and every month. I was at our territorial Chamber of Commerce meeting last month and met a new member recently relocated from the west coast. He’s recently worked closely with polyester distributor matters in the American Fiber Manufacturers Association, Inc. (AFMA).

The Exclusive Source of Information on Manufactured Fibers

The American Fiber Manufacturers Association, Inc. (AFMA) is the trade association for U.S. companies that manufacture synthetic and cellulosic fibers. The industry employs 27 thousand people and produces over 6 billion pounds of fiber in the U.S. Annual domestic sales exceed $8 billion. The membership is limited to U.S. producers that sell manufactured fiber in the open market.

The Association maintains close ties to other manufactured fiber trade associations worldwide.

AFMA has been in continuous operation since 1933, when it was established as the Rayon Institute with headquarters in New York. As new fibers entered the market, the Association was renamed the Man-Made Fiber Producers Association. In 1970, operations were moved to Washington as the focus grew from promotion to include advocacy on a broad range of regulatory and international trade issues. The current name for the Association was adopted in 1988.

The Association’s Board of Directors is made up of senior executives from each of AFMA’s member companies. Most AFMA programs are managed through committees and task groups of policy and technical experts from the companies. Permanent standing committees include the Trade and Statistics Committee, and the Technical Committee. The Technical Committee has task groups dealing with: Product Stewardship, Regulatory Affairs, Technical Communications, Toxicology, Product Flammability, and International Technical Affairs.

AFMA’s statistics division, the Fiber Economics Bureau (FEB), collects and publishes trade and production data on the manufactured fiber industry. The FiberSource site is maintained by FEB.

AFMA offices are located at 3033 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 700, Arlington, VA 22201. We can be reached by phone at 703-875-0432; by FAX at 703-875-0907; and by Email.

I’ll wrap it up there, even though — as you can see — there are so many more topics we could dig into about this association. You’re 100% welcome to visit their site and dig deeper. Feel free to read their library of truly interesting content.

Since seatbelt webbing work is my professional life, I did a bit of a dig about on their website, and it made me remember a textbook that I loved from university days. So up I went into my attic storage, and pulled down all five cardboard crates full of notebooks, engineering posters, magazines, and books.

I specifically sought out this one because it came to mind while reading the previous site. This is fundamentation to our industrial webbing vertical market, and, to be honest, I’ve benefited a lot from networking with people in this AMPEF association, and recommend it highly.
