The TSG Finishing design team uses comprehensive knowledge of chemistry and coating technology to be industry leaders in the development of concept thru production. The option of full toll manufacturing ensures commercial success of products from a cost and process viability standpoint. Many customers rely on TSG for the materialization of their concepts using woven or nonwoven materials. Filters often involve a fibrous substrate that does not inherently contain all the desired functionality. TSG has full capabilities of closing a substrate using such methods as coatings and fluid repellants to prevent excessive liquid from clogging air filters, and application of binders used to stiffen or texturize the filter material. Chemical formulation is one of the exceptional attributes that allows TSG to push the envelope and think outside the box on any given project.

With its extremely strong network and association of many chemical manufacturers, TSG is always on the forefront of new technology. It prides itself on its teams’ capabilities to rapidly build products following the path of theoretical design, lab prototypes, and production. Not only is TSG self-sufficient, but they are utilized by many companies to assist in “filling in the gaps” of its customers’ development processes.
