Waterproof Fabric is a new type of textile fabric, which is composed of high molecular waterproof and breathable material (PTFE film) and fabric. It has waterproof, moisture permeable, breathable, insulating, windproof and warm-keeping functions. Many of our familiar outdoor sportswear is made of waterproof and breathable fabrics.

The development of science and technology has also promoted the continuous development of the textile industry. Clothing in the 21st century will develop in the direction of comfort, functionality and return to nature. All kinds of intelligent fabrics and functional fabrics have received extensive attention and development. Waterproof fabric is one of them.

The waterproof fabric is waterproof and windproof, sweat-wicking, breathable and comfortable to wear. During the wearing process, water does not permeate the fabric under a certain pressure, while sweat and the like emitted by the human body can pass through the fabric or be conducted to the outside in the form of water vapour without condensation and accumulation between the surface of the human body and the fabric, thus keeping the wearer dry and warm. The continuous improvement of people's requirements for wearing comfort and functionality urges us to adopt various new technologies to improve various properties of fabrics. The combination of different technologies and technologies is the main means to endow fabrics with new functions, of which the coating/laminating technology of fabrics is one of the important methods.

Fabric coating/lamination is a combination of fabric and polymer. It not only retains the original function of fabric but also increases the function of the covering layer. Fabric coating/lamination technology provides more possibilities for the textile industry to manufacture functional fabric, greatly expanding the use of textiles, and its application field is becoming more and more wide. It is not only used in the production of clothing textiles but also expanded to footwear, civil or military uniforms, clothing under extreme weather conditions, oilproof cloth, tents, packages, etc.
