Specialty Paper & Film for the Apparel Industry
Cheever Paper & Film supplies the materials you need in the exact size, thickness, and coating required.
Carrier Film for Apparel ManufacturingWhen manufacturing clothing items like footwear, a glue is used to form the shoe. In order to do this, the glue has to be spread onto a specialty paper made with the right coating. The paper needs to stick just enough to hold the shoe in place during manufacturing, but allow for easy release once the shoe is finished. This method is used frequently for running shoes and construction boots.
Release Liners for ZippersHeat pressed zippers feature an adhesive around the edges that allow the zipper to be attached to a piece of clothing using heat instead of sewing. To ship these zippers, however, a release liner needs to be placed over the adhesive until the zippers are ready for assembly. These liners are made from a specialty paper that sticks to the adhesive, but can be easily removed.
Elastomer Tapes for Sport Performance Wear and UndergarmentsSpecialty paper is used to create materials that provide the stretch and structured needed for activewear and intimates. The paper and film are laminated together using a special glue in repeated layers until the material becomes structured, but elastic. This elastomer tape can be used in a range of configurations to create clothing unique clothing designs.
