Health and Hygiene

James Dewhurst provide a variety of scrim products aimed at the health and hygiene industries. From fabrics for protective garments, to reinforcements for wipes and cleaning products, we have a track record of providing high quality, high performing hygiene textiles in these industries.


Many wipe products are reinforced to ensure that the tissue does not disintegrate during normal use. The products we use are specially engineered to dry laminate to tissue, removing the need for additional adhesive coating in our customers’ process. This results in a high quality finish with reliable bonding and consistent quality.

Protective Products

James Dewhurst weave fabrics for a variety of protective garments, including military apparel. The fabrics manufactured are of the highest quality and can be printed or coated as required by the end application. Specialist functionality can be introduced into the fabric if required, either by technical modifications to the weave pattern, careful choice of raw materials for particular properties, or through coating for additional functionality.

Cleaning Products

Many cleaning products are reinforced to stabilise them for scrubbing or scouring. James Dewhurst manufacture reinforcements for a range of processes which include alkali and acid processing environments. Our scrims can be engineered to stabilise the cleaning substrate during and after production with resistance to a wide range of chemical environments.
