Batting Terminology-Word of the Day

Resin- A resin coating sprayed to one or both sides of carded/garnetted fibers, this coating is then dried and cured to form a bonded batting, generally referred to as bonding or bonded. This is used on a wide variety of fibers including polyester, cotton, wool, etc. This bonded batting resists bearding better than any other type of batting. There are many different types of fiber and resin combinations to give the desired “look” and”hand”. Combining processes, fibers and resins makes the resin bonded process the most versatile.
