Printable Technical Textiles offers the best solutions for a beautiful and long-lasting printed tensile structure. Thanks to SolidskinTec, we can offer the highest guarantees in the market.
We collaborate with the world’s best technical textile manufacturers, such as the Serge Ferrari, Mehler Texnologies, Sattler, Sioen Industries, and Heytex. Together, we have selected and developed a wide range of mesh and solid membranes that are suitable for our SolidskinTec printing process.
The SolidskinTec printing process transforms the top surface of technical textiles into an apolar closed surface that prevents the adherence of water particles – a phenomenon known as the lotus effect because it resembles the way lotus flowers repel water and dirt. Dirt, moisture, and mold particles cannot adhere to this closed surface, so the textile retains its flexibility and appearance in all weather conditions. Tensile structures printed with SolidskinTec are self-cleaning through rainfall, or can be cleaned with just water – no need for aggressive detergents.
Beautiful, UV-resistant tensile structures
An essential characteristic of the SolidskinTec process is the print’s resistance to UV radiation. This can break down the ink pigment molecules, causing discoloration. The polyurethane varnish used in our SolidskinTec printing process ensures that the pigments of the printed technical textiles are protected from UV damage, so the tensile structure will look the same even after many years, without bleaching or fading.
