FPS Fabric Permeability System
FPS-X Measurement

Mecanum’s fabric permeability system is specially designed to measure the air permeability of most types of fabrics, including industrial fabrics for technical purpose, nonwovens or made-up textiles that are permeable to air. Our FPS follows the ISO 9073-15 and ISO 9237 air permeability standard for accurate and efficient measurements.

The air permeability allows to measure how air can pass through a fabric. This is an essential design parameter for fabrics or non-woven for by example air filters, airbags, tents, sails, parachute, or rain gear. As air permeability is directly related to fibers interlacing and density, our FPS is a very efficient tool for quality control of your fabric’s products.
