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 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.
