Original Press Release:

New Headliner, Tyvek®, and Colored Pouch Fabrics for the Returnable Packaging Industry

Headliner, Tyvek*, and colored pouch fabrics offer customers comprehensive alternatives in dunnage materials.


Winona Lake, Indiana – In response to the returnable packaging industry's growing demand for a wider variety of fabrics, ABC Industries, Inc. has developed Headliner, Tyvek*, and colored pouch fabrics that are specially designed to transport Class A automotive finished goods.  The new products position ABC'S Packa-Tex™ line as the returnable packaging industry's comprehensive solution for pouch, panel, tray liner, and divider dunnage material.

ABC's new Headliner Class-A fabric performs an average of 70% better than its leading competitor in ASTM D751 tear and tensile testing.** The 12 oz./yd.² (407 g/m²), 4-ply laminate is available in 60" (152 cm) wide rolls and features ABC's signature blue brushed tricot material on milky clear reinforced laminated vinyl.  For non-standard applications, variations on ABC's headliner weight and color are available.

Utilizing the trusted durability of Tyvek, ABC has engineered a special Class-A fabric that offers low abrasion and easy cleaning.  The white Tyvek on milky clear vinyl fabric is a 12 oz./yd.² (407 g/m²), 3-ply laminate offered in 60" (152 cm) wide rolls.

Rounding out the new Packa-Tex™ products is the addition of color options for pouch fabric.  Available in 13 and 18 oz./yd.² (441 and 610 g/m²) weights, ABC's pouch fabric is now available in blue, kelly green, yellow, light gray, black, white, and red, in addition to standard auto gray and milky clear. The material features a comparably softer hand than its competitors for easier sewing and a gentler feel for the end user.

"The additions of Tyvek, Headliner, and colored pouch fabric offer customers a well-rounded selection of returnable packaging fabrics at a very competitive price." stated Rob Jones, Eastern Region Sales Manager for ABC Industries' Industrial Textile Fabrics division.  Jones continued, "Our customers are eager to present their end users with dunnage fabrics that are significantly stronger than the materials available today."

Headliner, Tyvek, and colored pouch fabric join ABC's Packa-Tex™ line of laminated returnable packaging fabrics that provide a delicate, flexible method of product transport for automotive parts, postal packages, glassware, and other fragile components or finished goods.   Fabric returnable packaging solutions offer easy access to parts, provide protection from hard or abrasive surfaces, and are far more cost effective than disposable packaging products.
