Fabric Lamination

There are many materials used in the returnable packaging market. If you are packaging parts with Class-A surfaces, or parts can’t have any scratching or scuffs, you will need some kind of laminate on your dividers. The more common laminates are Spun Bond, Tyvek, and Brushed Nylon. In recent years, materials like Evolon and Suede Microfiber have gained some popularity.

When parts are placed and shipped in these divider sets, the package jostles during transport and handling increasing the likelihood of scuffing or scratching the parts. These laminates significantly reduce that chance, if not eliminate it altogether. As an additional measure, we can roll over the edges of the board so that the fabric ends up on the top edge which can be another sharp area. Special die-cutting considerations must be made so that the edge of the board is not cut off like in a typical die-cut part.

Class A Fabrics


Another inexpensive option offers cushion as well as non-scratch properties. It is primarily used in disposable packaging.


Spunbond is a non-woven fabric that has been used for years, popular for it’s cost and availability. Spunbond Polypropylene fabrics are commonly made with fine to medium dpf continuous filament fibers. Spunbond lamination to corrugated plastic panels provides a scratch resistant surface on a sturdy and lightweight material, perfect for packing products that need to arrive without scratches.


A softer material offers a little padding in addition to a non-scratch surface. Brushed Fabric is a polyester-based textile that is made of filament yarn with a warp knit.


Cross-linked polyethylene foam is a closed-cell foam characterized by a compact feel and resistance to water. It has the ability to protect class “A” surfaces. It has high tensile and tear strengths.


Invented by Freudenberg, Evolon® microfilament textiles provide the best combination of textile and mechanical properties for a wide variety of applications.

Benefits include lint-free, non-abrasive, non-fraying edges, and UV resistance.


Tyvek is a woven material that has a slick, non-abrasive, and smooth surface.

Tyvek is made from 100% polyethylene fibers that are spun-weaved together making a surface that does not lint or dust. It is also mildew-resistant. Tyvek® brand materials are inherently water resistant, inert to most chemicals, and stand up to mishandling/abuse.

We can laminate Tyvek to plastic corrugated, and other substrates, on 1 or both sides and even roll over the edges if needed. Tyvek is used to protect many surfaces including Class A, painted, and leathered surfaces. Laminated sheets are used on partition sets, pads, and tote liners.
