A READY TO USE PRODUCT FOR WARP SIZING
Fabritex-PCV is a premium grade Single shot sizing product mostly customised to suit the individual requirements of the customers. It is ideally suitable for blends of PC / PV modal, tencel, rayon, viscose and finer counts of cotton, with higher thread counts to be woven in high speed looms. Also used for filament sizing.
Fabritex-PCV is a highly modified & formulated starch product which provides adequate cohesion and good penetration, which results in better performance of the sized beam in the loom. The film provided by Fabritex-PCV is strong and flexible, thereby offering a high abrasion resistance of the sized yarn. This helps in smoother performance of the beam and ensures less end breaks. Fabritex-PCV gives good paste stability which ultimately provides uniform sizing.
Fabritex – PCV has a low viscosity, which helps in better penetration. A 10% paste has a viscosity of 5 to 7 seconds in 50 ml TEXSIZE / ATIRA cup at 90 °C. This low viscosity is very much suitable for all types of yarns, especially dyed yarns.
Fabritex-PCV has an excellent adhesion property. The high tackiness in Fabritex-PCV helps in better binding and improvement in weaving efficiency in high speed shuttle less looms. Fabritex-PCV has very good tackiness which helps in better binding and provides the necessary elastic warp thread protection.
Fabritex-PCV is highly consistent, which in turn helps in uniform size pick-up. A 10% paste remains consistent during overnight storage and there is no gel formation or thinning of paste.
Fabritex-PCV has an excellent film forming property. The film formed by Fabritex-PCV is strong, thin, and transparent and does not crack easily. This in turn helps in better pliability and reduction of loss in elongation.
Preparation of Sizing paste
With continuous and preferably vigorous stirring, the required quantity of Fabritex-PCV is sprinkled to cold water in the cooker/pre-mixer. The suspension is cooked at 130°C/30 psi and retained for 15min, before transferring to the storage.
Fabritex-PCV is formulated to be used along with any additives. This product can be applied to all counts of cotton yarn and Polyester-Cotton blends to achieve maximum efficiency at loom shed.
