Heat protection & insulation specialists

Founded in the heart of the industrial revolution in 1860 by William G Eaton, W.G. Eaton began its journey with the ambition to produce the world’s finest flat leather transmission belting. William was not only successful in this endeavour, but he also established a tradition of exceptional craftsmanship and quality that remains an integral part of our ethos today.

W.G. Eaton has grown from those early beginnings into a leading provider of heat protection and insulation solutions for a variety of industries. Throughout the years, we have continuously refined our craft, embracing new technologies and methods, while retaining the same dedication to quality and craftsmanship that William G Eaton instilled in the company over a century ago.

In the 1860s, leather was the material of choice for many applications, owing to its durability and versatility. However, as the needs of industries have evolved, so too have our materials and techniques. W.G. Eaton has developed expertise in the use of a vast array of raw materials, constantly adapting to meet the challenges of the modern industrial landscape.

We understand that choosing the right material is a critical element in any heat protection or insulation solution. That’s why we place immense value on providing expert advice and guidance to our customers. Whether you require a solution for volume production or a bespoke application, our team is committed to helping you select the best material for your specific needs.

Our service doesn’t end with material selection. We offer a comprehensive service that includes devising optimal solutions tailored to each customer’s unique requirements. We combine our extensive industry knowledge, technical expertise, and innovative thinking to develop heat protection and insulation solutions that not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations. As we look to the future, we remain committed to our founding principles of craftsmanship, quality, and innovation. We will continue to explore new ways to serve our customers better, to evolve with the industries we serve, and to maintain our position as a trusted partner in heat protection and insulation. At W.G. Eaton, we are proud of our rich heritage, and we look forward to continuing to serve industry with our high-quality solutions for many years to come.
