Herculite, Inc. has been an innovative fabric company specializing in high performance laminated & coated fabrics for more than 60 years. As one of the founders of the synthetic fabrics industry, Herculite® pioneered the use of laminated fabrics in the healthcare industry. Today, the Herculite® fabric company provides a vast array of brands, products, marketing, design, manufacturing, consulting and technical expertise for the benefit of our customers.
Architectural awnings designed with Herculite's® Awning Fabrics provide extra outdoor living and extended seasonal space, protect interior furnishings from fading and ultra violet damage. The PVC composite textile awning material reduces energy costs, and offers superior sun protection. Vinyl awning fabrics are waterproof, easy to maintain and the fabric stays tight on the frame. All our brands employ superior unique film formulations, adhesive systems and our Core Stabilized Process to insure maximum extended life performance.
When a project requires specific features or attributes, our experienced development team will customize an awning fabric product to meet your specification requirements. As you develop these new applications Herculite welcomes the opportunity to improve your bottom line.

          2.3FABRICATION
 
          A.Fabricate awning using methods recommended by the manufacturer.
 
          B.Hot Air Welding: Vinyl welding involves the use of hot air varying from 200 to 600 degrees C or more to weld two layers of fabric. A nozzle is inserted into the space between the two layers and the hot air is blown inside. Once the surfaces are hot enough, the layers are pressed together using pinch rollers. The weld is created once the rollers are finished pinching the fabrics together.
 
          C.Radio Frequency Welding: Also known as high frequency or dielectric welding; uses radio waves to create heat.
 
          D.Solvent Welding: In this process, chemical solvents are used to create a seam. Solvent is placed along the surface of the fabrics and allowed to rest for a short period of time. The solvent's chemicals break down or soften the fabrics. Once the fabrics are soft enough, pressure is applied to create the seam.
 
          E.Wedge Welding: Two pieces of fabric are passed through a wedge. The wedge is heated and as the fabrics move along, a roller is used to press them together; a seam is created.
 
          F.Sewing Using Polyester or Teflon Thread: Created using a sewing machine. Proper thread selection is critical especially when outdoor applications are subject to harsh weather elements. Polyester and Teflon threads offer strength and durability.
