A plain polyester fabric that is coated with two layers of foam on one side: a blackout foam coat and a finish color. The opposite side of the fabric is left unfinished. This type of blackout is typically used on decorative fabrics in order to achieve light fastness.
A polyester fabric that is coated with three layers of foam. Made identically to two pass plus the unfinished side gets a coat of foam and finish color. Both sides being finished allows this blackout type to be used as a treatment by itself.
COATING A DECORATIVE FABRIC
A blackout coating can be added to the back of a traditional fabric. This process is identical to two pass goods. This eliminates the need to line the drapery with another layer of blackout lining.
A semi-translucent fabric used to provide stability to treatments where light fastness is not required. Typically used as the lining for public romans and stationary panels to ensure a ‘finished’ back.
A denser fabric used between two fabrics or as a lining to improve noise absorption, room insulation or treatment shape (fullness and body).
