PALStex® in laser test

Laser cutting of laminate fabric based on polyamide

PALStex® is a special laminate fabric based on Cordura®. It is resistent to environmental influences and appropriate to use in different climates. This means that even in extreme cold there is no breakage of the material and that even high temperatures or high humidity do not lead to delamination of the material. It also combines these advantages with those of the basic Cordura® fabric. Due to these properties, PALStex® is ideally suited for textiles in the area of personal protective equipment and is used there in a variety of ways.

On behalf of Delcotex, eurolaser tested PALStex® in its application laboratory with regard to the properties for laser processing.

Advantages of cutting PALStex® with CO² laser systems:

  • Cost reduction: thanks to sealedcut edges, edging is no longer necessary
  • Laser cutting and engraving in one operation
  • Permanent laser engraving for fine product identification (e.g. serial number, documentation)
  • Smooth, lint-free cut edges
  • Dust-free cutting - less cleaning effort
  • Automated processing directly from the roll
  • No material fixation required as it is non-contact and force-free processing
  • Laser cutting of extremely fine, almost radius-free contours
  • No tool wear and therefore consistently high cutting quality

Scope of application

Due to ist properties, PALStex® is mainly used for personal protective Equipment (PPE) and protective clothing. PALStex® has been optimized especially for laser-cut carrying systems. These have the Advantage that the cut edges are welded during laser cutting and are therefore tear-proof. As a result, the carrying systems are durable, stable and Equipment can be easily attached to them.

Advantages of PALStex®:

  • Optimized for laser-cut carrying systems (tear-proof edges)
  • Anti-stab and bullet protection effect
  • Resistant to environmental influences - usable in different climate zones
  • High temperature and humidity resistance
  • Can be colored and printed
