Heathcoat Fabrics Ltd has an international reputation for innovation and quality, supplying a range of apparel and high technology technical textiles to diverse markets around the world.
The company manufactures a diverse range of technical textiles for a wide range of applications, including medical, aerospace, automotive, defence, protective and industrial end uses.
Heathcoat’s knitting department produces fine English tulle, meshes, ‘HDtec’ print bases for digital textiles, 3D ‘Spacetec’ spacer fabrics, Queenscord and sharkskin among others.
Heathcoat Fabrics recently developed a specific parachute fabric which enabled a safe landing on Mars for NASA’s perserverance rover on their recent mission to the red planet.
Heathcoat Fabrics currently have a range of technical developments being worked on and are always keen to bring new products to market. The company has developed a spacer from recycled yarns that is proving to be extremely popular and are also working on producing a recycled tulle too that they hope to launch later this year.
