Tear Proof Properties
What is Kovenex Tear Proof Fabric?
As a non-woven, stitch-bonded fabric, Kovenex provides outstanding tear resistance. It’s minimal fiber migration is the result of a locking structure created by stitch-bonding. While Kovenex is available as a batting or in stitch-bonded form, it is the stitch-bonding that contributes to Kovenex’ tear proof fabric superiority. Stitch-bonding provides abrasive resistance and enhanced doffing and donning in protective gloves, and enhanced durability as compared to other commercially available tear proof fabrics in other applications. Stitch-bonding also provides enhanced tensile strength and is appropriate in any environment where durability is paramount, or high levels of abrasion are likely to occur.
