IFF Event at IFAI Expo

Luxury Bowling Tournament

The fundraising event went off without a hitch! There were over 40 people in attendance, many who said this was one of the best IFF event they have attended. The bowling alley served as a great place to mingle, network and enjoy some friendly competition with not only their teammates, but the other participants as well. 

With your support we are able to give back and impact the industrial fabrics industry. We hope to see you all next year in Dallas for our annual event!

2017 Winner
UltraTech International, Inc. is a company based in Jacksonville, FL. that was formed in 1993 with one goal in mind: to create the world's finest offerings of spill containment and spill response products. It was awarded a $5,000 prize for EverShield, a C6 water based fabric treatment technology. It is sold in a liquid concentrate form to mills for application during manufacturing. It is applied to bulk fabric using a dip, pad, dry and cure process typically found in a textile or finishing mill. EverShield is unique and unlike other products in the market today -- it will repel water, food, mud, oils, chemicals, etc. 

Winners are always featured at this IFAI Expo, visible to thousands in the industrial fabrics industry.

[The 2018 Innovation Award will open for entries this spring.]
