HIGHLY MODIFIED STARCH
The rapid growth of cotton blend fabrics has brought with it the need of improved warp size materials having better adhesion. SizoPlast is highly modified starches which has low viscosity and possess a strong and flexible film. It substitutes the use of other binders, both natural and synthetic.
Viscosity & Consistency
Sizoplast has a low viscosity ideally suited for weaving finer count yarns in shuttle-less high speed looms. This low viscosity helps in better penetration and higher efficiency in weaving. Sizoplast is highly consistent which helps in uniform size pick-up.
Binding & Film Formation
SizoPlast films are strong and flexible. It has better adhesion and good thickness .SizoPlast binds cotton, viscose and polyester fibres, controls the hairiness of the yarn, resulting in added strength and better weaveability.
SizoPlast is a highly modified and yarns sized with SizoPlast show excellent weaving performance with few loom stops .SizoPlast is a unique starch, modified especially for use as a warp size for spun yarns and blends, to be woven in high speed shuttle –less looms.
Preparation of Sizing paste
Fill the kettle with required quantity of water and sprinkle SizoPlast along with other additives, with stirrer on. Cook the suspension to 130◦C /30 psi and retain for 10 minutes before transferring to storage.
