Footwear

Have you ever thought about how many materials go into your shoes?

Linings, covers, toe and heel counters and insoles all use non woven fabrics to make sure they are fit for use, ergonomically and practically.

Techtex non woven fabrics for footwear are produced using 100% spunbonded polypropylene and high quality stitch bond polyester staple fibres and polyester yarns. Many of the top UK and global footwear brands use Techtex products in their manufacturing processes.

They can be made with various finishes to suit customer needs. The fabrics can also be stitched or needled to other fabrics to provide added strength.

Techtex materials have:

  • Good tensile properties
  • Excellent elongation properties
  • Resilience
  • Rigidity
  • Durability
  • Permeability and non-permeability as required
  • Good anti-abrasion properties
  • Variety of finishes available including puncture-resistance, flame retardant, water resistant, coloured, anti-bacterial anti-slip and anti-microbial.

Applications:

  • Linings for walking, hiking and everyday shoes or boots
  • Toe and heel counters
  • Insole board (when added to needle punched material for strength and durability)
