Material characteristics of HÜBNER folding bellows

Optimal weather resistance with elastomer, thermoplastic or silicone coatings.


All of our folding bellows are matched to the vehicle type, the technical requirements and the customer's chosen design. During production, we use special coated fabrics that have been developed at HÜBNER and have proven themselves especially sturdy and resistant over many years of use. Depending on the particular application, the fabrics are adjusted to meet different requirements. We can give them particularly high UV stability, a higher degree of cold or heat resistance or particularly high tear and abrasion resistance. We have three basic variants in our folding bellows – with thermoplastic-coated, elastomer-coated or silicone-coated fabric.
