Occupational safety

Offering the highest levels of quality, reliability and service, Verseidag opens up new possibilities in the field of personal protective equipment (PPE). Specially designed for work at utility companies or metalworking plants, in the haulage and local public transport sectors as well as in the chemical industry and food processing.

Automotive

Textile solutions for the automotive industry place high demands on the products concerned. In addition to meeting strict durability and weather resistance specifications, they frequently have to be space saving and flexible. Verseidag addresses these issues with a broad product range to satisfy the most diverse needs.

Ballistic protection

Verseidag weaves, coats and develops customised protective materials for the military, the police, safety equipment, the aviation industry and smoke and heat protection.

Biogas

Verseidag sets benchmarks in the biogas sector, making a significant contribution towards a sustainable future. We help our customers achieve the highest levels of safety and enable cost-effective biogas plant operation in the long term.

Digital printing

Effective pictures are worth a thousand words. Designers, printers and customers worldwide swear by Verseidag’s excellent print quality and innovative digital printing materials. Are you looking for high-quality products that are also ecologically responsible? With Verseidag’s textile printing media, you can have both.

Flexible containers

Flexible containers of whatever kind are frequently subjected to extreme loads. Verseidag materials exceed the specified requirements with safety benefits such as high adhesion and high strengths.

Industry & Logistics

Industry and logistics – materials as versatile as industrial applications. Whether for goods traffic, transport protection, roller doors, scaffold protection, packaging protection or terrace coverings – Verseidag has the right product regardless.

Contract coating

Special Solutions develops made-to-measure product solutions on behalf of our customers for a variety of markets in which textile fabrics with the most diverse coatings are used.

PTFE conveyor belts

PTFE conveyor belts have numerous potential applications in industry, for example as release films or belt dryers, in transfer printing and coating systems as well as in the food sector for processing meat, fish and bakery products.

Sun protection

Indoor and outdoor sun protection interact optimally to regulate heat

Indoor sun protection

Modern residential and office buildings would be unthinkable without sun protection and privacy screening to provide comfort, security and a pleasant room climate. Verseidag manufactures a wide range of fabrics for all kinds of applications. Smart, stylish and durable.

Outdoor sun protection

Heat is absorbed before it reaches the glass

Temporary buildings & tents

Verseidag has a selection of opaque, translucent and highly translucent materials for aluminium, steel and wooden structures. Airdomes, marquees, VIP tents, hangars and temporary industrial buildings and warehouses are just some of the typical applications. Six different qualities, from “easy” to “premium”, leave nothing to be desired.

Textile architecture

Coated fabrics of a very special kind are essential to achieve fluid forms and seemingly floating geometries in architecture. Not only must they be durable and functional; these fabrics must also look good and stay looking good. Verseidag’s architectural membranes have homogeneous material properties as the basis for enduring quality.

Highly tear-resistant containers

For several decades now, Verseidag’s outstanding manufacturing expertise has also included the supply of highly tear-resistant materials with above-average adhesive properties. Product characteristics such as safety, reliability and stability play a particularly important role in load testing applications.  
One unusually challenging assignment for the development and sales team was when a long-standing customer approached us looking for a material with much better tear resistance than anything so far available in the Verseidag portfolio. The specification called for tensile strengths exceeding 17,000 N/5 cm and adhesion of > 180 N/cm. The intended application was a container filled with up to 110,000 litres of water – for example, for load testing on cranes or ship lifts.   
The principal difficulties here were weaving such a strong raw fabric and applying such a large amount of PVC paste using a knife coating blade. The aim was to achieve a final weight of 3000 g/m² during the coating process, to enable the material to withstand the extreme loads occurring in end-use conditions.   
Following numerous modifications to the PVC composition, Verseidag eventually found the right balance between the weaving and coating parameters, so that the product in question could be manufactured in line with the customer’s mechanical specification.

Conveyor belt for high speeds

No premature detachment of the silicone coating

The challenge was to develop a silicone-coated conveyor belt that can be used at high speeds during plant operation without any impairment of durability – either as a result of the centrifugal forces or due to the mechanical load.
Steps had to be taken to prevent the silicone coating from being detached from the fabric prematurely. At the same time, the coating was not allowed to pierce the back of the fabric.
Owing to the high centrifugal forces, and in the knowledge that silicone exhibits poorer adhesive properties than PVC, a suitable solution could only be found together with the silicone supplier. A new type of silicone with improved adhesive properties needed to be developed.
Following several months of development work plus a series of trials in cooperation with the supplier, Verseidag succeeded in improving the adhesive properties on the front and adjusting the viscosity such that the silicone coating no longer pierces the other side of the fabric. 
This new product helped the customer become more competitive and increase their share of the market.

From low-wick to no-wick

Tent material life further extended

The capillary effect causes water – and very often dirt too – to penetrate into coated tent materials. At the end of the drying process, a combination of dirt and bacteria remains. Dark lines or coloured “crosses” are clearly visible in the material. 
This effect can be observed in ordinary fabrics if the PVC coating is damaged or the edges are not sealed.
Several tent rental companies challenged Verseidag to develop a product for the premium rental market.
More than 20 years ago, their ideas and suggestions inspired Verseidag to push ahead with the development of a premium product with low-wick properties. This new product reduced the capillary effect – and the phenomenon referred to as wicking (water absorption) – to a minimum. The life not only of the material but also of the tents in general was significantly extended as a result.
A new challenge arose during the last few years: Verseidag received a growing number of enquiries from tent rental firms and manufacturers – especially in tropical regions – regarding ways to reduce the wicking effect still further and make the material more durable in conditions of high relative humidity. Ideally, the capillary effect would then be avoided altogether.   
Verseidag took up the challenge and came up with a next-generation tent product, which we call “no-wick”!
Unlike conventional low-wick treatment methods, which take place on the finished fabric, each individual thread of Verseidag premium materials is treated with a protective, fluorocarbon-based coating. Not only the fabric surface but also the individual threads resist water absorption in this way, leading to a further major extension of the material life.
