They are divided into two basic types: warp knit-fabrics such as Tricot or Double Plush and Circular-knit fabrics. Knit Fabrics tend to have a nap and run in a rib or wale direction and usually have more elasticity along the coarse than along the wale line. Depending on finishing applications and yarn types these fabrics can have a very soft feel or more of a coarse touch. Construction on these products are technical in nature and are very durable for automotive applications. We have grey, beige, and black in plain and fancy designs.
Woven fabrics are made up of fibers linked together by alternating yarns leased together at 90 degree angles. Fabrics can be woven on Flat Woven or Velour which would have more of a Pile. The fabric rib normally runs more in a side to side or fill direction. Depending on Finishing applications and yarn types these fabrics can have a very soft feel or more of a coarse touch. We have grey, beige, and black in plain and fancy designs.
Laminated Body Cloth
A mixed assortment of woven and knitted fabrics are available with foam backing. Foam thickness varies from 1/8” to1/4” and varies from product to product. Laminated body cloth is often more desirable as it saves the trimmer from applying a foam to flat stock or final application. We have grey, beige, and black.
