As a global leader in industrial fabrics, TenCate has a wide range of industrial fabrics to offer including products for the drainage and filtration market. Our ongoing relationship with industry experts allows TenCate to continually develop innovative fabrics for the growing needs of our customers.


TenCate supplies various filter fabrics. A few applications are:

  • Drainboard filters (non-woven and woven)
  • Air filtration fabrics (woven).

Drainboards or dimple boards are used to drain water away from building constructions. To ensure a high-flow and effective water-flow capacity a filter fabric can be used on one or both sides. TenCate supplies two types of product, a non-woven and woven filter.

For use in air filters, TenCate Industrial Fabrics manufactures two and three-dimensional woven fabrics. Polyolefin yarn is ideal for this process. The inherent electrostatic charge found in polyolefin captures airborne particles and makes fabric resistant to attack by many chemicals and microorganisms.


TenCate’s industry and technical knowledge stands unmatched in expertise, engineering and market history. We extrude our own yarns, allowing us to produce yarn with additives for color, antibacterial / antifungal properties and UV stabilizers. Beyond our high production capacity, our state-of-the-art finishing department provides a variety of options to meet your needs.
