Might you be curious about that represent our businesses’ needs to the government?

1 inch web material is what I write about, because it is what I know and love, so I am sure it will be a bit of a surprise to you that I only uncovered a few unusual bits of interest related to our inventory of industrial strap and webbing manufacturer.

Let me update you on this process, just one quick “FYI”. Today’s insights come from unusual bits that our team saw in our morning surf online. In fact, the information we found today will be of great interest to those who love posts has tons of info in our favorite scientific arenas.

Amazingly enough, there is even more — believe it or not — to share on our primary site. So if you’d love better detailed content, then take a peek here: 1 inch web material.

Okay, let’s get started:
Good day my dearfriend, Roger Howard here, your commercial fabrics guy. My team and I are ready to share a great industrial fabrics article with you.

Give a shout 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 add all that very soon.

I have to say that I prefer the written word? 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 1 1/2 inch seat belt webbing:

Our team knows it’s just the way it is in the automotive webbing market that businessmen like us have to network and build out our associations each and every month. I was at our local Chamber of Commerce conference last month and met a new member recently transferred from the west coast. He’s recently worked closely with poly web material matters in the American Fiber Manufacturers Association, Inc. (AFMA).

Yes, for those who are loyal followers of my post, this is the part where I come out and admit that I had barely ever knew anything substantial about the Plastics Industry Trade Association (PITA). Again, yes, this is embarrassing, I know… but at least I’m getting on top of it now. But now, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to share an overview with you all …just in case there were a few of you may be curious about the PITA.

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.

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.

Hi! To all our followers! As always, I’m your commercial fabrics guy, eager to drop a few lines about truly interesting textile process and procedure concepts.

Your compatriot Roger Howard here writing clever insights for you — indeed, I am the prolific commercial fabrics guy) — and ready to share amazin textiles data with you!

Correct my friend, this is your commercial fabrics guy, and I have yet another textiles historic insight to send your way. Are you new?? Great!! Hello! Roger Howard here, I’m your intrepid author, eager to get into all we’ve found today.

1.5 inch seat belt webbing is what we’ve worked on all these years, so it may seem odd that I only found two topics of interest today: material polyester and strap polyester.

Before I go too far — let me explain — today’s insights come from experts’ posts that my assistant and I uncovered in today’s careful examination of the “Interwebs”.

Truth be told, the information we found today will be of great interest to those who love posts with lots of details in the world of commercial science.

Listen, would you rather see videos? 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.

To be clear, 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!).

Let me be honest, my friends, we have even more to share on our primary site. When you’re ready for better details, take a peek here: 1.5 inch seat belt webbing.

Without further delay, here is what I am eager to share today. This article provides great background and insight to the science behind 1 inch web material:

Durability and strength of the material make it a sought after option for many businesses across the globe. Simple things, like the way the woven material can be preshrunk during the manufacturing process makes it a valuable asset to business that require a fabric with consistently non-shrinking properties.
Allergy sufferers love polyester fabric for its non-allergic properties. In fact, many people prefer the material for making quilts, pillows, bed sheets (among other uses) for this target audience that is willing to pay more to get the relief they need in hypoallergenic materials.

Recent Research Confirms All Of This: It’s No Secret That… Manufacturing Processes Are Critical for Polyester Polymerization.
Initial Fabrication

A catalyst is mixed with ethylene glycol and dimethyl terephthalate at a temperature of 150-210 degrees centigrade. The resulting substance is then combined with terephthalic acid. It is allowed to boil at a temperature of 280 degrees centigrade where it forms polyester which is in liquid form. The liquid is allowed to pass through a machine that makes the filaments, tow, fiberfill or staple.

Drying

The liquid polyester ribbons are allowed to cool until hard enough. They are then cut into tiny pieces to ensure that no air was trapped in the filament during the manufacturing process.

Spinning

Melting of the chips is done at 260-270 degree centigrade, and the resulting solution passes through a spinneret which is metallic and has tiny holes. The holes are of various sizes and forms’ depending on what the company is looking to achieve. It is during this process that different chemicals are added for instance those that will make the final product non-flammable.

After the spinning process is complete, the fiber is allowed to dry. Specialized machines do the draw of fiber. The fibers are soft, and it is at this stage that texturing, twisting and other processes take place. The fiber is then packaged into a form that it will be easier to weave it into the desired material.

The manufacturing process of tow is quite different from that of filament manufacture.in that the spinneret machine has smaller holes. The tow fiber that is produced is stored in containers which are specifically for cooling. With technology advancements and the fact that polyester blends easily with natural materials like cotton, wool among others makes it the best choice for many fashion designers.

When politicians fight people tune-in

Darling readers!2-inch webbing roll is actually on my mind, and right now I (Roger Howard, of course!) bring you yet another very-nearly-brilliant post on narrow material my aim being to serve you with various awesome reads and connect you with some great resources.

* BUT * before we get into all that … I have a hot political segment to publish!

And you’ve in all probability * never * come across one such as this … because when politicians fight people tune-in. I’m describing more than just furious words. The dudes in this circumstance are buddies; you’ll see exactly how they had a go toe-to-toe in this brawl …

I tuned into this because one of the two was my director back in the day when I first got out of college. So if perhaps you have enthusiasm in political malicious talk and insider news, then read on.

Yep, high stakes, high tension, legislative concerns concentrated on commercial cargo ships:

“How the Harbor District Found Itself in the Middle of Humboldt’s Most Bitter Political Fight


Author: Ryan Burns
Source: https://lostcoastoutpost.com/2016/apr/29/how-harbor-district-found-itself-center-countys-mo/

Last week, two elected officials got into a face-to-face, toe-to-toe, “let’s take this outside”-style argument during a break in a Planning Commission meeting. This wasn’t a personal beef (the men each told the Outpost afterward that they consider each other friends). Nor was it about a property dispute that affects either man directly.

No, the spat boiled over from a long-simmering political dispute over management of Humboldt Bay. Former Planning Commissioner Dennis Mayo and current Harbor Commissioner Richard Marks (the officials in last week’s quarrel) stand on separate sides of a philosophical and tactical divide that has gradually expanded to define Humboldt County’s most bitter political struggle — whether we should wait for big, blue-collar industries to arrive on our shores via sea and rail, or start allowing other businesses to use that land.

With a 5-1 vote the Planning Commission sided with the Mayo contingent, which envisions Humboldt Bay as a major industrialized seaport offering international shipping and a rebuilt (or freshly built) railroad connecting our county to the national rail network.

Marks and his fellow Harbor Commissioners, meanwhile, are pursuing a more economically diversified approach. At last week’s meeting, Division 5 Commissioner Patrick Higgins told the Planning Commission that the Harbor District almost went broke trying to market our harbor to industrial shipping interests. The time has come, he said, to loosen zoning restrictions on the vacant and deteriorating land surrounding the bay so other types of businesses can move in.

The ultimate decision on this matter lies with the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors, which will have to decide which side of that political chasm to stand on. And while their decision might not dictate the future of Humboldt Bay, it could have significant impacts on property owners and infrastructure around the harbor.

Yes indeed, there is much more where that came from.

Abstract

The influence of conventional acid and alkaline high temperature dyeing procedures on fabric construction is investigated. The effects of weave construction, orange, red, and blue disperse dyes, double layers of fabrics, and UV absorber on the ultraviolet protection factors (UPF) of polyester fabrics are the topics of this research. A spectrophotometer with an integrating sphere is used to measure the uv transmittance of polyester fabrics according to an AATCC test. Small differences in the weight of fabrics after blind dyeing procedures already influence the uv transmittance of fabrics. Pale orange and blue dyed fabrics show a high enough UPF, while a pale red dyed fabric does not reach such values. Deep dyed and double layered fabrics and fabrics aftertreated with a UV absorber reach high UPF values.

Abstract

The influence of coloration on ultraviolet (UV) protection of cotton knitted fabrics with different knit structures incorporated with the three major stitch types, namely knit, tuck and miss stitches, are studied in four approaches.

The effects of color depth and knit structures on the ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) of fabrics are investigated. The influences of hue and color depth on the UPF of fabrics are also compared. Since UV protection offered by dyes mainly depends on their chemical structures, the UPF and color strength of fabrics colored by reactive dyes that varied in reactive groups, such as mono-functional and bi-functional reactive dyes, are examined. The correlations between UPF and the CIELAB color coordinates, color strength (K/Ssum), are analyzed. The results show that light-colored fabrics with compact structures achieve similar or even better UV protection than the dark-colored fabrics with loose structures.

This implies that color property might not be a reliable indicator for UV protection of knitted fabrics and the effect of coloration on UV protection is affected by fabric construction. The results also denote that the chemical structure of reactive dyes affects the UV protection of fabrics in a qualitative approach that depends on the unique ultraviolet radiation blocking ability of the chemical constituents. Among the color coordinates investigated, only lightness (L*) and K/Ssum are found to be correlated with the UPF of the fabrics, but the strength of correlations is not very strong. This is because the fabric characteristics that have significant impacts of UV protection are mostly not involved in the measurement of color properties.
