The applications for our scrim fabrics range from flexible membranes to multiple composite applications including satellite and other aerospace uses. Our specialty scrims can be produced in infinite combinations and can include high-tensile-strength fibers to reinforce composites, films or other applications where enhanced structural properties are required. Nothing gets us going like being invited to partner with you to create a custom solution.

Our standard leno pattern can help improve stability in open mesh fabrics. In this pattern, the warp yarns are twisted around consecutive weft fibers to form a spiral pair. This effectively locks each weft yarn in place offering improved stability over a standard plain weave construction. Typically, the warp yarns are one-half the weight of the weft yarns resulting in a balanced fabric.
This lock style of Leno weave allows for the same weight of fibers to be used in both warp and the weft. A balanced open weave with stability results where the locking in is accomplished with additional lighter weight yarns.
This style of Leno uses two warp fibers to one weft fiber. Unlike in the standard Leno fabric, adjacent warp yarns do not interlock with each other. The weft fibers and the adjacent warp fibers are locked in with only one lighter weight yarn.
This optional Leno fabric design has fibers in both warp and weft directions that do not interface with each other. This is a preferred fabric design when using high-performance fibers like carbon and the desire is to maximize the strength of the fiber.
This fabric style mimics a Leno design. Separation between sets of warp and weft fibers is achieved by the opposing interlacing of edge yarns on either side of the opening created. The advantage of this pattern is it allows higher machine speeds than a typical Leno design. These fabrics tend to be heavier and thicker than the equivalent traditional Leno weave.
