EmployeeBradford’s 16-member Applied Research Engineering Team has the unequaled expertise and innovation required to create the advanced coated textiles that can put you at the top of your industry.  Drawing from our global pool of suppliers, we expertly marry the most advanced polymers with state-of-the-art textiles to yield the coated fabrics of the future.

 

Our advantage: Bradford is one of just a few coated fabrics producers that can use solvent based polymers to build the very best high performance products. Whereas others may take a drawn out approach of investigation, analysis, and trial and error in their applied research, we think differently. Believing intensity creates the shortest distance to discovery, we bring a persistent sense of energy and urgency to our work.  As a result, we deliver superior solutions, not in months, but in weeks, even days.  After all, if you’re anxiously forecasting and addressing the emerging challenges of 2015, we should be too; we stand with you to find heretofore unavailable solutions.

A DEDICATED TEAM TO SERVE DIVERSE INDUSTRIES

Bradford’s advanced pilot line capabilities are a crucial tool in commercializing our development programs.  Our pilot line allows us to quickly manufacture, pre-test and evaluate improved coatings and fabrics.  As a result, we can go into testing protocols on new materials weeks or months earlier than possible for our competitors.

With our revolutionary pilot line, we can refine and maximize the results of your finished product.  We can also produce 21″ wide coated textiles in production quantities as you need them…all without waiting for main production line availability.  At Bradford, we have the unprecedented technology and capabilities to keep you on the cutting edge of today’s product development programs.

Bradford operates a unique hot oil laminator (named Tarzan) that can laminate many kinds of materials under very high pressure and heat. This unit is carefully controlled by a recent hardware upgrade that permits precise heat and pressure controls for optimum production.

THE ENVIRONMENT FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS

 

Bradford Industries is dedicated to keeping the environment safe for America’s most valuable resource–its people. To this end, we’ve installed state-of-the-art Huntington Energy Systems and ABB Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers to eliminate V.O.C emissions and leave the air clean and devoid of harmful environmental waste. Environmental and Chemical engineers oversee all facets of the manufacturing business to ensure compliance with EPA, DEP and OSHA regulations.  The company has recently installed a $550,000 automated bag house to capture silicone dioxide flakes that develop from silicone coating, preventing them from entering the atmosphere.
