What is a scrim?

A laid scrim looks like a grid or lattice. It is made from continuous filament products (yarns). Kirson produces rectangular scrims exclusively. In order to keep the yarns in the desired right-angled position it is necessary to join these yarns together. In contrast to woven products the fixation of the warp and weft yarns in laid scrims must be done by chemical bonding. Scrims are used to reinforce many different materials and products.
