Rubber Reinforcement Fabrics

Rubber reinforcement fabricsArville fabrics are used as reinforcements in the manufacture of mechanical rubber goods. We weave using specialist yarns including high-strength, high temperature resistant polyesters and meta-aramids such as Kevlar, Conex and Nomex to create fabrics which are designed to bond well and accept rubber matrices in ways that provide exceptional strength to flexibility ratios


Our capability of manufacturing tubular fabric which is cut on the bias allows us to provide textiles which not only have improved drape and elasticity properties for complex and intricate shapes, but also offers ways to reduce our customers' production costs by eliminating unnecesary wastage from the manufacturing process


Our ability to pre-cut fabric to a specific bias reduces handling of the fabric in further processes, saving both valuable production time and costs

 Fuel Cell Reinforcements

Fuel cell reinforcementsArville leads the market developing high-performance, cost-effective textiles for reinforcing difficult, highly complex and intricate rubber products. Our flexible manufacturing - even for short run or bespoke individual pieces makes us ideal partners to provide cost-effective solutions for highly technical textiles


Arville fabrics are used as reinforcements within the structure of flexible fuel cells and fuel bladders which are used in high-performance racing cars, military vehicles, aircraft and helicopters


We produce durable fabrics that perform consistently over time where safety levels are critical. We can create bespoke lightweight fabrics designed for fuel resistance, impact resistance, high tensile strength, heat resistance, flame proofing, and puncture resistance
