A shout out to all my beloved readers and fans of 1.5 inch seat belt webbing!
I, Roger Howard, have come with yet one other unusual write up that is going to leave you eagerly watching for more (if I may say so myself). While I spent most of my time this week dealing with our Industrial Shipping Demonstration 2016 webbing material exhibit, my extra hours after that were all invested in delving deep within the enigma and exhilaration of what is trending in the polyester manufacturer and webbing company categories. Incidentally, we're still collecting any and all pictures, videos, and technical designs (especially trucking tarps and cargo net webbing). Really eager to build a gallery that will leave our disciples spell bound and merrily clicking thru our gallery.
Oh, and if you have captivating tall tales and effective applications of narrow seat belt webbing, of course send me an email so we can talk about it.
Undoubtedly I could talk for hours on all these matters, but let's buckle up and get into the legitimate set of issues, okay? You are going to love this current post (just a little bawdy, but that's my style).
It's a fait accompli in the poly web material business sector that entreprenuers like us need to network and build out our relationships each and every week. I was at our territorial Chamber of Commerce meeting two days ago and met a new member recently relocated from Washington, DC. He's performed closely with poly web material matters in the Fiber Economics Bureau (FEB) for many years.
To be truthful, I must confess that I certainly never was aware of the Fiber Economics Bureau (humiliating, yes, I know). It seemed like a perfect opportunity to share an overview with you all (on the outside chance that a few of you may be curious about the "FEB" as was I :-).

The Exclusive Source of Information on Manufactured Fibers
ince 1935, the Fiber Economics Bureau (FEB) has been the ONLY source of direct statistics on the United States manufactured fiber industry and its products — acrylic, nylon, polyester, olefin, rayon, glass fiber, and others. Our long-established contacts with fiber producers and our confidential handling of proprietary data has earned us respect and cooperation from manufactured fiber producers around the world.
Our two monthly publications, the Fiber Organon and the Manufactured Fiber Review, present the latest information on industry trends in easy-to-read tables and charts. This data on production, shipments, capacities, stocks, imports-exports, mill use and other key industry statistics is made available 15 to 30 days after the close of each month.
Our premier data service is the Manufactured Fiber Handbook. It is distributed in page-by-page updates in a loose-leaf binder format designed for those who need the most timely, comprehensive, and in-depth data on the industry. The service includes details on primary and secondary end use shipments. Special data compilations are available for subscribers covering years prior to the start of new subscriptions.
Our annual World Directory of Manufactured Fiber Producers is the only directory with global coverage. It contains over 1,500 fiber producer listings in 72 countries. For each producer we provide details on addresses, telephone/fax numbers, plant locations, products produced, and trade names.
As you can imagine, there are VOLUMES more that could be shared about the FEB, but I'll cease fire there. You're 100% welcome to visit their site and dig deeper, becuase they have a huge library of truly fabulous info.
Since seatbelt webbing work is my professional life, I did a bit of a dig about on their website, and it made me remember a textbook that I loved from university days. So up I went into my attic storage, and pulled down all five cardboard crates full of notebooks, engineering posters, magazines, and books.
Specifically, this is the one that I dug out. It's the one that got me hooked on the industrial webbing vertical market, and, to be honest, I've not looked back since then.
You can see a bit more detail on Amazon.com, yet here is a very nice summary:
Modern Polyesters: Chemistry and Technology of Polyesters and Copolyesters 1st Edition
", by John Scheirs (Editor), Timothy E. Long (Editor)
Provides an overview of the family of polyester polymers which comprise an important group of plastics that span the range of commodity polymers to engineering resins. It describes the preparation, properties and applications of polyesters. Readers will also find details on polyester-based elastomers, biodegradable aliphatic polyester, liquid crystal polyesters and unsaturated polyesters for glass-reinforced composites.
Presents an overview of the most recent developments.
Explores synthesis, catalysts, processes, properties and applications.
Looks at emerging polyester materials as well as existing ones.
Written by foremost experts from both academia and industry, ensuring that both fundamentals and practical applications are covered.
"…a very informative book." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, March/April 2006)
"…for those involved in research or in manufacturing or polyester processing, this book will be essential.” (E-STREAMS, August 2004)
"...examines the chemistry and technology of polyester and copolyesters and illustrates the diversity and importance of these materials..." (Materials World, Thursday 1 January 2004)
"...successful in presenting and discussing its technical topics...an excellent collection of data...an essential and invaluable resource..." (Materials World, Vol 12(8), August 2004)
“…informative…written clearly in a consistent style…should be a key acquisition for any research chemist seeking to investigate polyesters…” (Applied Organometallic Chemistry, Vol.19, No.1, January 2005)
From the Back Cover
Polyesters are one of the most important class of polymers in use today. Hundreds of polyesters exist although only about a dozen are of commercial significance. Polyesters are ubiquitous materials in modern life and are used in diverse applications from drink bottles and photographic film to shirts and fabrics. This book serves as a comprehensive, up-to-date reference and includes the following sections:
Polymerization & polycondensation
Fibers, compounds and modifying additives
Depolymerization & degradation
Liquid crystal polyesters
Comprehensive coverage of polyester resins with an emphasis on their structure-property relationships is provided. Polyester types covered in detail include: PET, PET copolymers, PCT, PCTG, PCTA, PBT, PEN, PTT, cyclic polyester oligomers, LCP and UP's. The latest advances in polyesters are described along with current and emerging application areas.
This work contains more than 20 contributions with experts from both academia and industry from North America, Europe, the Far East and Australia.
An essential book for plastics engineers, polymer chemists, material scientists and those working in the plastics manufacturing and processing industries that deal with polyester resins.
