Canada’s Fab-Form has entered into a fabric development agreement with Japanese firm Hagihara. The agreement will enable both companies to research, test, and develop a unique fabric optimised for the Fast-Tube fabric column form. Concrete pressures in the fabric form induce tensile force in the weft direction only, not in the warp direction.

Hagihara, established in 1962, is an innovative world leading designer and manufacturer of flat yarns (synthetic fibres) made of polypropylene and/or high-density polyethylene which are sold around the world to many diverse industries. Hagihara is a listed company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, Fab-Form said in a statement.

“These large differences in tensile forces in the fabric provide a unique opportunity to develop a patentable fabric for a world market that is extremely large,” said Fab-Form CEO Richard Fearn.
