About AerO

Aero Coated Fabrics which does Extrusion Coating and Film Extrusion was founded by 2 thermoplastics experts: Rinus Aerts who is a chemist, TPO / PVC technician and R&D expert with 35 years’ experience, and Fred Roffelsen (Aero), entrepreneur in the Plastic Industry, but now retired in March 2021.

Adding this with the latest technology of a brand new, state of the art 2.200 mm wide extrusion coating calandar and an experienced production staff, familiar with the finesses and details of extrusion coating equipment, allowed us within 3 years “to become the quality coating specialist” in Western Europe.

Supported by our own laboratory extruder and financial capacity, and specialized R&D support of the Kingspan Group, Aero Coated Fabrics is birthplace of new coating combinations of product solutions and market developments.

We produce high end PVC and non PVC coated (technical textile) products for: dancing floors, flexible acoustic separating curtains, TPU conveyor belts, sewage pipe renovation, concrete silo protection, TPO pool covers, cow mattresses, solar film, rubber packings and many more coating solutions. All of which is specially developed for specific needs.

Our ambition and policy guides us to support society with better solutions using recyclable materials, if possible free from plasticizers and more secure in application using flame retardant components, in combination with UV stable solutions.

Altogether, you could describe Aero Coated Fabrics as being: young, modern, ambitious, R&D focused, capable of offering flexibility in manufacturing Extrusion Coating and Film Extrusion, short delivery time, smaller production runs, excellent service, and use of our „expertise and experience“ to deliver the best product.

That is why we dare to say: “We solve your challenge”

    Products

    GEO Membranes

    To protect the soil from spillage of chemicals, environmental protection is important for our next generations. AerO has a wide range of polymers and fabrics that can be utilized to protect concrete in biogas tanks, water reservoirs, floating covers, silo covers, biogas tanks. Underlay materials for tank mounds, petrol stations, de-icing, stations (airports), dredging depots, etc.

    Sewage Liner CIPP

    Sewer renovation also known as the Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) method, is a known technology by AerO Coated fabrics. With the newest manufacturing technologies AerO is able to offer new polymers with existing knowledge that offers benefits for the end application with flexibility and chemical resistance. AerO has all certificates required once liners are utilized for the processing of drinking water. With the brand new manufacturing equipment AerO is able to coat new polymers with extrusion coating equipment. Waste is limited and we try to achieve a 100% product satisfaction. AerO has short delivery times. AerO  has all capabilities to coat technical membranes and felts with a thickness ranging from 0,5 mm to 10 mm and polymer coating layer 0,2 to 2,2 mm in a maximum width of 2,2 meters.

    Swimming Pool Covers

    A range of durable, weather resistant coated technical textiles for pool liners, pool covers and flexi-pools. Suitable for chlorine water and with our hopper dosing and mixing system the coating can be made UV resistant and antifungal. The technical fabric can be coated with PVC or if preferred modified PE/PP to withstands the toughest conditions. All pool covers manufactured by AerO Coated Fabrics are HF weldable. Standard thickness 0,6 mm and variations in weight depending on the choice of polymers and technical fabric. Structured surfaces (anti-slip) high gloss  and matted finishes are part of our standard range. All available in any color.

    Cow Mattresses

    Located in The Netherlands we have many cows in our countryside and we know that happy dairy cows produce more milk if they can rest in comfort. To give this comfort we have developed a mattress that consists of a soft-woven interior and anti-slip flexible top layer. The coated woven is suited to withstands the weight and puncture strengths of the cow’s hoofs. It’s also resistant to urine and manure. With AerO Coated Fabrics Cow Mattresses dairy cows can be given a good and comfortable rest.

    Acoustic Hall dividing curtains & separation curtains

    AerO Coated Fabrics is specialized in manufacturing sound absorbing dividing curtains for use in indoor sports halls, schools and leisure centers. These can be used to sub-divide sports halls to customer requirements, separate pitches or create perimeter safety boundaries.

    These “curtains” have a structured embossed synthetic leather look and consist out of two layers of high density NON PVC coating. The middle layer is made out of a sound absorbing non-woven to provide visual and noise barrier properties. 22 dB sound isolation can be achieved.

    These screens are ideal for larger sport halls that will be sectioned off for different activities where viewing from one side to the other is undesirable.

    AerO Coated Fabrics offers to manufacture the acoustic dividing curtains according to our clients specific wishes. Thicknesses, polymers (type and color) and carrier fleece can all be custom made and adapted to specific technical requirements.

    Film and Foils

    A wide range of films and foils for various technical application. Variable thicknesses and polymers. For example made out of TPU a welding film for conveyor belts, supported by a silicon release paper it is the perfect method to make a conveyor endless with an almost invisible joint. Any color and thickness from 100µm. Besides TPU, PVC can also be processed as polymer.

    Manufacturing

    AerO Coated Fabrics, offers a full service toll manufacturing technical textiles Extrusion Coating and Film Extrusion. With the latest state of the art extrusion calendar, laboratory and testing equipment we offer a complete service to develop new products and improve existing products.
