Our vertical integration in the fiber industry allows us complete control over our raw materials.

Foss Performance Materials specialty engineered fabrics can be custom built to fit a wide variety of customer requirements. Ability to respond to the unique needs of any OEM.
Our materials offered for “B surfaces” are abrasion resistant, fire retardant (302), and perform to cut and sew specifications. Seat backing materials are available in flat and random velours that offer exceptional performance, low weight, and cost savings over knits, wovens, and vinyls.
Made from recycled fibers and polymers, these low-cost products offer aesthetics, moldability, and improved noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) performance.
These fabrics are used in areas where molded shape retention is required, or acoustical and thermal performance are specified such as headliner systems, IPs, trunk and hood liners, wheel arch covers, under-hood absorbers, under-dash insulators, and other assorted applications. Foss Performance Materials engineers products that are completely recyclable, without fiberglass, for environmental friendliness.
Foss Performance Materials pioneered the use of nonwoven automotive headliners after noticing that conventional knit fabric ceilings of cars had a tendency to lose shape and fall after a number of years. In contrast, the nonwoven liners provide a finished surface that adheres easily to automobile ceilings and have become the industry standard. Product also uses Spectropile: Nonwoven polyester plush fabric for dash covers
The leading car wash equipment makers and aftermarket accessories companies use Foss Performance Materials Cloth, made with 100% solution-dyed polypropylene fiber with a calendared finish.
