FabBond® (substrate lamination) on Sunbrella Fabric for Outdoor Pool Tables
November 30, 2016
We received Sunbrella fabric that required FabBond®, which is layered bonding of two or more layers of materials, that is going to be used for an outdoor pool table. Sunbrella fabric has a very smooth surface, and it does not work alone for that reason. The ball rolls too fast on the Sunbrella fabric, and in order to slow down the ball as it rolls we must provide cushion to the fabric. Traditional felt (wool) provides friction and can slow down the ball as it rolls making it perfect for the outdoor pool table. We laminated the softer felt to provide cushion. Knit backing provides stability. The project was a special request and there is never a challenge that we don't love to accept. What creative thing do you have planned for your next design project?
