Custom solutions forged through creativity

Shawmut offers customized solutions to meet complex global challenges. We believe that no challenge is too great and that every problem is meant to be solved. We invest heavily in research & development, technology, and the development of next-generation materials.

PRODUCTS AND APPLICATIONS

MVT & Performance Barrier Films
We source high MVT microporous and monolithic barrier films from around the globe made from a variety of polymers including urethane, nylon, PTFE, and olefin-based resins.

Flame and Heat Resistance
We make custom products ranging from aluminized fiberglass to high performance breathable laminates incorporating inherently fire-retardant fibers, such as Nomex, Kevlar and PBI.

Chemical and Biological Protection
Our products range from chemical protection afforded by the nonwoven/Saran® film laminate used in the production of HazMat suits, to durable surgical gowns capable of achieving conformance to ASTMF 1670 and ASTMF 1671 for blood and viral barrier resistance.

Durable Garments
We offer lamination technology which allows materials to pass the rigors of numerous industrial launderings, autoclaving, and critical end-use applications.

Darlexx® Stretch Barrier Laminates
Our proprietary Darlexx® fabric is an omni-directional spandex warp knit with a layer of highly breathable elastic monolithic membrane, which is windproof, waterproof, and breathable.

Low Cost Disposables
Our ability to handle extremely light-weight non-wovens and films at high speeds with precise control of adhesive lay down (low add-on weights), makes us a competitive alternative to direct extrusion coating.

Molding & Foaming-in-Place
We are the largest laminator of automotive foam-in-place trim components in North America, engineering composites that meet the critical needs of molding and foam-in-place applications.

Air and Liquid Containment
We have an unmatched reputation for delivering materials that conform to demanding challenges for military specifications for potable water containment, fuel resistant fabrics for the construction of collapsible fuel tanks, or providing a long-term barrier to air or helium.

Molded and Die Cut Parts
We have multi-roll capability for high volume production, as well as shuttle die cutters for competitively priced low volume production. Our CNC cutting capability for prototypes offers the advantage of testing part size configuration without having to commit to hard tooling expense before final size is determined.

We also offer a variety of formable soft substrates for door panel inserts and other interior components. We offer low volume molding, as well as multi-cavity capabilities for cost competitive high-volume soft molded inserts. In addition, we have wood and propylene-based products for high impact structural formed inserts for use in rear load door panels.
