Bixby’s unique plastic formulations offer a variety of adhesive, barrier, and elastic taping for performance, athletic, and intimate apparel as well as garments for everyday wear. 

The state-of-the-art equipment at Bixby combined with our Applications Development Engineering (ADE) Team's expertise allows us to offer our customers innovative, custom materials for their apparel projects.  These innovations can include films integrated with foam padding, textile reinforcements, and multilayer combinations of polymers and textiles. 

Bixby's elastic tapes can be manufactured in a variety of widths and thicknesses. All of our elastic tapes are prepared through solvent-free processes offering unique and flexible options for design.  The Bix®Wear line of sew-free adhesives reduces garment weight while providing excellent seam elasticity and resilience. BixWear adhesives or tapes can also be made at customized widths for use in parts of the garment requiring extra shape control and support.  Below is a listing of some of our current offerings, however, custom requests are always welcomed.
