VELOUR versus LOOP

Everybody knows the traditional hook and loop fastening. What is less known is that, in the place of a loop element, a softer and thinner material can be used: the VELOUR. This product has some characteristics that make it more efficient, for several uses, than a classic loop element.

Over the years we constantly expanded our offer with many velour variants, providing different grammages and finishings which make them washable, resistant to a great number of opening and closing cycles, soft, sewable, auto-adhesive or closed on the back to prevent the passage of glues or foams.

Among the latest innovations: we can use the Velour on a great range of textile materials making them able to hold on to hook or mushroom counterparts. Furthermore, we create particular geometric shapes with laser.

Below, we show you some of the new fastenings which use the velour as counterpart:

  • Thin and soft closing: Klettostar® hook LS (a significantly softer and lighter hook than the standard one) to be used with the washable Velour. The closing maintains its capability to resist to multiple opening and closing cycles.
  • The closing for big surfaces: big sized panels can be fixed with the  Pressotex® or Pressogrip® Velour-Mushroom closing. Heavy loads can be sustained with a very low cost in terms of installation.
  • The thinnest closing: if the Velour needs a thickness slightly higher than a millimetre, it can be combined with our micro-mushroom Microplast®.

So, what is the verdict in the confrontation between loop and velour?  They are on an equal footing! Both articles have their own advantages: The loop combined with the classical hook creates a “firm” closing capable of resisting to countless opening and closing cycles. On the other hand, the Velour is mainly used for its softness, its lower thickness and the possibility of producing it in a width of 1,5 m.
