Drop stitch material in a general sense, consists of two parallel sheets of fabric that are connected by thousands of polyester threads. When the edges of the top and bottom fabric sheets are joined by air-tight material and the bladder is inflated, the threads confine the movement of the top and bottom sheets so that it maintains a board shape rather than curving outward like other inflatable objects. 20cm thickness drop stitch material is widly used for floating platforms and docks.

There is increasing concerns from Europe and US regarding Phthalates. Phthalates refers to Phthalate Esters / PAEs, which are common addictive to soften plastics especially PVC in past 40 years and 80% of Phthalates are used in plastic products. It exists in others include inks, adhesives, sealant agents, paints, film coatings, glass fibers, leather, rainwear, footwear, dyestuff, perfume, softener, polish remover, lubricant, cosmetics and isolation for cables. Phthalates has toxic for reproduction. Based on the application and customer’s safety concerns, there are tests based on different Phthalates. The common testing are 3P, 6P, 7P, 15P and 16P. Our product has passed reach standard, and for higher requirement, we can make 6P/16P.
Drop stitch material applications:
Inflatable boat bottom
Inflatable swimming pool
