New, Lower-Cost Material Handling Products – KRC2, V-Clear2 & Vu-Thru2

Vintex is well known for high-quality composite material handling products and we are pleased to introduce a new lineup of lower-cost automotive material handling options. These new materials give automotive packaging manufacturers and returnable dunnage design engineers added choices when looking for soft, durable, fabrics they can trust.  The benefits are a better value point for cost sensitive projects without having to compromise on performance. 

Every manufacturer wants to use the best products available at a competitive price.  So, when Vintex looked at its material offerings, we wanted to give customers more flexibility and choices in deciding between “Good, Better, Best”.

Expanding our product offering allows customers to take advantage of all the benefits of dealing with a trusted supplier for volume pricing, consolidated shipping, quick delivery, technical support and of course, the high-level of service that can always be expected from Vintex. 


We are pleased to introduce the new additions to our line as follows:


A new soft, brushed Tricot face offers excellent protection to any Class-A surface.  Tested for scratch resistance against sensitive parts, this new composite face fabric outperforms competing products while maintaining the same weight and strength properties of standard KRC.  Currently available in grey with a tan and blue option in development for early 2021.


Newly formulated to create a crisp blue tint with improved clarity, V-Clear2 introduces a new 2×2 scrim matrix with wider openings for better transparency without sacrificing any strength or durability properties.  Available in 13, 18 and 27oz, this newly designed formulation offers an attractive price point perfectly suited for indoor curtain, cover and flap applications.  


A cool blue tint gives Vu-Thru2 a modern look and feel for any dunnage bag application.  Our new PVC formulation provides a smooth-glide surface to help parts slide in and out of packaging. In addition, a slightly firmer hand adds pocket support and shape structure for long term performance.

All three new fabrics are manufactured exclusively at Vintex’s Mount Forest, Ontario production facility and have been engineered to meet today’s essential automotive standards.  These new products have been added to the portfolio of our existing products, creating the industry’s most comprehensive assortment of material handling fabric options.

Isolation Gowns – Combatting PPE Shortages

What started off as a simple Vintex response to COVID-19 and the emergency needs for domestic PPE materials resulted in the successful launch of three isolation gown fabrics that provide superior fluid barrier protection (20 times higher than the requirements of Level-3 gown material standards). 

Vintex has a long history of manufacturing thin, lightweight, medical grade materials for the Healthcare industry and gown materials have now become a natural extension of our portfolio of products.  Safe, durable and long-lasting reusability are all key features of our gown materials. In a time where PPE scarcity has become prominent, launderability (20+ washings for the lightest weight fabric and up to 150 washings for the heavy duty material) has made Vintex products the preferred economic and environmental choice during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The end-user response to our materials has also been extremely positive. Medical professionals have cited a heightened sense of safety and durability while using Vintex gowns, leading to longer-lasting, economical and trusted frontline use.

All three gown products are engineered and manufactured in Vintex’s Mount Forest, Ontario facility with customizable widths, colours and order length quantities tailored to suit any manufacturer’s needs.

Vintex manufactures three gown products in a variety of colours
