Crowntex (Thailand) Co. Ltd. is a leading manufacturer
of home textiles and coated fabrics in Thailand. Our coated
fabric business started in 1988 with the installation of the
first universal fabric coating line from Framatex of the U.K.
and the production of coated canvas for the domestic Thai
market as well as those of neighboring countries in Southeast
Asia. The range of coated fabric products expanded gradually
to meet diversified market needs. The original Framatex fabric
coating line is equipped with a flocking unit to produce flocked
fabrics that are used in many different applications.
At present our annual production capacity is in excess of
10 million square meters utilizing four fabric coating lines.
These machines are used to apply and bond specific chemicals
and/or materials to one or both sides of fabric substrates
in order to impart specific desired characteristic to the
fabric. Both dipping and knife-over-roll methods of coating
are utilized in these machines.
Typical chemicals and materials used in the coating process
include resins, PVC, polyurethane, acrylic, foam, rubber,
fluorocarbons, etc. Color dyes and pigments may be added to
the chemical bath to produce the desire colors and shades
required by customers. Drying and curing of the chemicals
applied to the substrate is accomplished by means of heat
wherein the fabric is passed through an oven with continuous
circulation of hot air. The drying temperature and speed at
which the fabrics pass through the calenders in the coating
machines can be controlled to achieve specific end results
required. Properties such as water resistance, fire retardance,
UV resistance, flexibility, surface gloss, surface texture,
etc. can be achieved through the proper application of specific
chemical and additive mix and compounds on the fabric substrate.
Crowntex supplies large quantities of coated fabrics to residential,
commercial and industrial customers. These coated fabrics
are used in such applications as vertical and roller blinds,
truck covers, canvas tents and tarpaulins, window shades and
awnings, outdoor furniture, sun protection for greenhouses,
advertising signboards, and many others.
With the help of highly-efficient modern equipment and machineries,
Crowntex employees strive to serve their customers responsively
and to achieve a high degree of customer satisfaction.

This diagram shows how substrate fabric is "fed" through
calenders (rollers) and stenters (fabric stretchers) in the
fabric coating line and how it passes through a vat where
the specially-formulated coating mix is applied to the fabric
through a dipping process before the coated fabric is dried
in an oven using temperature- and flow-regulated hot air and
then calendered to impart desired surface patterns and/or
