Engineered Specialty Fabrics

ESF Technology

Engineered Specialty Fabrics or ESF are scrim fabrics designed for reinforcing various composite structures.  Through a proprietary process, we create scrims that reinforce load requirements off the 0-90 degree axis.  In fact, ADFORS is the world-exclusive provider of off-angle scrims.  This variation in geometry allows us to construct scrims that not only increase durability and off-load line strength in your product, but can also differentiate them visually.

ESF scrims use a variety of yarns including: Glass, Polyester, Aramid, Carbon, Dyneema®, PBI Zylon®, Spectra®, Vectran® and Innegra™

Fabric designs include:

  • Off-angle scrims (XP family)
  • Off-angle carbon fiber scrims (XPC family)
  • Warp only scrims (XP or XPC family)
  • Uni-directional fabrics (XP and XPC family)
  • Carrier scrims

Popular applications include recreational boards such as SUPs, surf boards, skis and snow boards.
