Madaline® is a good sound insulating material for use in noisy spaces such as engine compartments. It is a light weight but multi-directionally strong fabric that can be treated to be fire retardant. Madaline® is also flexible but has firm hand for efficient cutting and placement. It is lint-free, low peeling and does not fray at the cut edges thus ideal for the manufacturing process.


Madaline® laminated with felt makes for an excellent sound barrier curtain for use in space and hall segregation.

Technical Features

Bursting StrengthBursting StrengthMadaline® has been tested for bursting strength in accordance with ISO 13938-1:1999 and achieved a Class A performance level rating.AcousticsAcousticsMadaline®, when used alone or laminated with other fabrics provides for a good sound insulating barrier fabric.Cutting, Stitching and Non-Fraying EdgesCutting, Stitching and Non-Fraying EdgesDue to multi-directional strength and endless microfilaments Madaline® is cut without fraying and stitching is secure and long-lasting. Traditional textile converting processes are used to efficiently convert Madaline® into finished products. Products converted from Madaline® have been washed up with no degradation of the stitching nor fraying of the ends or surfaces.Lint-Free and Low PillingLint-Free and Low PillingMadaline® is lint-free and low pilling due to its microfilaments which have no ends protruding from the fabric. Madaline® does not release fluff from friction during cleaning, when washing and rubbing experienced as packaging material. Being lint-free also mitigates the build-up of electrostatic charge which can damage electronic equipment and parts.Good Thermal InsulationGood Thermal InsulationHeat energy does not migrate efficiently through Madaline® therefore the fabric, although breathable, it has good thermal insulation capability.Shape MemoryShape MemoryMadaline® inherently possesses ‘shape memory’ with its multidirectional and uniform tensile strength. Multidirectional entanglement of microfilaments containing polyamide yields a fabric which retains its shape and surface structure, without wrinkling, even after numerous wash cycles.Cost EffectiveCost EffectiveMadaline is multi-washable but retains its construction, performance and shape over a long lifetime. Treatments such as easy soil release during washing lowers detergent cost and especially, its inherent characteristic to dry quickly reduces energy consumption and saves time.Environmentally FriendlyEnvironmentally FriendlyThe Madaline® production process is environmentally friendly, using recycled water, has negligible C02 emissions, and uses less energy than traditional textiles. Madaline® is performance oriented therefore less fabric is needed to achieve similar performance compared to traditional textiles.

Madaline® fills the gap in textiles with a high performance, multi-use and smart fabric that has reduced environmental impact.
