How did PLANOFIL® come about?
PLANOFIL® was originally developed in response to a request from the Swiss Army. The light yet hard-wearing material made from 100% polyester with specialist eco-friendly polyurethane coating soon proved itself to be particularly well suited for use as a tarpaulin or boat cover. Furthermore, PLANOFIL® impressed users with its excellent physical properties as a genuine all-purpose material for every kind of protective cover, which is superior to comparable products in many functional aspects – including in terms of weight, waterproofing, beading effect or even tear propagation resistance.
Aside from the functional properties and the top quality processing and material, boat upholsterers, car upholsterers and other cover manufacturers value the Swiss made tarpaulin textile for its flexible handling and the ease with which they can process it.
