Engineered webbings are designed to meet specific performance requirements. For example, you would define your concerns such as the expected environmental conditions during use, the ultimate strength, physical dimensions, or properties such as resistance to certain chemicals. Sturges will then select a fiber that is optimal for your application and propose a webbing tailored to your specific needs. If the proposal meets your expectations, a prototype webbing can be woven and tested to confirm the performance supported by data. Sturges weaves webbings up to 8” in width and welcomes smaller production runs.
In the case of any requests for webbing engineered from highly specialized yarns, we request that our customers define their application in detail so that we can recommend a material suitable for customer verification.
Note that these are just a small sampling of products that we offer. Don’t see a product that will meet your requirements? Please contact us. We have been making custom solutions for over 100 years and would be more than happy to help you develop a product that meets your needs.
Our Custom Engineered Webbing Solutions
Kevlar® webbing is an ultra high-performance fiber with excellent properties including high strength to weight ratio, low thermal shrinkage, good heat, flame and chemical resistance, & more. Choose from our selection of heavy duty, cut-resistant Kevlar® straps.
Vectran® fibers have high strength, high resistance to chemicals, moisture and extreme temperature and this fiber has a very low creep which bodes well in applications that require minimal elongation and in hostile environments. Browse our collection of Vectran® straps.
Nomex® straps meet the demands of applications requiring high temperature, fully engineered safety solutions. Our Nomex® webbing is used to create harnesses, parachutes & more. Explore our selection of straps available in light-weight binding to medium and heavy webbing.
UHMWPE fibers are known for their high strength and durability. This material is 10x stronger than steel, resistant to degradation from UV light, and is made of a greater strength than aramid fiber. UHMWPE straps are ideal for applications that require high strength and low stretch.
