Cooley Product Applications

Industrial Applications

Cooley Group’s 90-year-history of proven performance via continually innovative solutions and through the development of sustainable chemistry is evident across its vast array of industrial applications. From its beginnings as merely a manufacturer of awnings, Cooley has evolved into a global manufacturer of high-performance polymeric solutions – ranging from military inflatable boats to commercial fuel tanks, from billboards and banners to signs and awnings, and from commercial single-ply roofing to water protection/preservation initiatives.

Portable Tanks
Collapsible/Portable Tanks

Cooley’s resilient, industrial-strength fabrics are used to manufacture collapsible/portable pillow tanks in the containment of as much as 210,000 gallons (800,000 liters). The membranes are designed to withstand harsh conditions and contain large capacities, yet they are flexible enough to be packaged into small containers for transport and quick deployment. The fabric is made with a proprietary formulation for water and fuel containment—including fuel, diesel, and avgas (aviation gasoline)—and meets stringent military specifications.

Primary/Secondary Containment

Cooley’s line of commercial containment applications includes solutions for primary/secondary containment (fuel, oil, chemical). Primary containment pertains to the containment of any type of fluid for an extended period of time, while secondary containment surrounds one or more primary storage containers to prevent or minimize the possibility of accidental release while also ensuring compliance with chemical storage regulations.

Inflatable Boats
Inflatable Boats

CoolThane polyurethane fabrics are used to create various Inflatable Boat applications – including Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC) used in the military. The innovative fabric is favored specifically for its superior durability as it has three times the puncture resistance of Hypalon or PVC. CoolThane is Berry Amendment-compliant and is heat-weldable, allowing for welded seams that form a joint stronger than the material itself.

Oil Booms

Cooley’s containment product solutions include geomembranes used to contain oil spills. Designed to protect the environment from harsh chemicals (including crude oil and gasoline), the innovative geomembrane is highly resistant to salt water, extreme weather, abrasions, and punctures.

Highly resistant to rips, tears, abrasions, and punctures, the TXN® membrane retains these properties even at low temperatures.
