Recasens USA Introduces Four New Products

Bala Cynwyd, Pa.-based Recasens USA — a manufacturer of solution-dyed acrylic and vinyl textiles for the marine and awning and other technical textile applications, and the US division of Spain-based S.A. Recasens — has added to its line of high-performance textiles with the launch of four new products.

Recasens’ newest marine textiles include an 86-inch-width version of its Nautimar® marine fabric, which is polyvinyl chloride (PVC)-coated on one side; and the new Nauti Plus®, a woven polyester that is PVC-coated on both sides and also is available in an 86-inch width. According to Recasens, both Nautimar and Nauti Plus are fully waterproof fabrics with good tear and tensile strength; flexibility for easy installation and storage; and an embossed, silicon finish for simple maintenance and cleaning. Nautimar comes in eight solid colors, and Nauti Plus comes in white and snow white.

Recasens has introduced a new technical textile line called SOLAREC® for use in awnings, veranda covers, window shades and architectural shade systems. SOLAREC offers ultraviolet (UV) light protection and features a mesh construction that improves airflow and, according to the company, may reduce energy consumption. The fabric is available in 9 colors. Both are 32 yards long and 118 inches wide, reducing the need for cutting and seaming of end products.

The company also offers RecScreen®, a line of PVC/polyester shade screen fabrics that feature antibacterial and fire-retardant characteristics as well as a lead-free coating. According to Recasens, the fabric filters UV rays and improves air circulation, therefore reducing energy costs and keeping rooms cooler in the summer. Recscreen also is available in a 118-inch width, making it easily adaptable for an array of uses.
