SPECIALITY STARCH PRODUCT FOR COASER COUNTS
Sizotex – BS is a specially modified and formulated starch product free from PVA. It is ideally suitable for sizing of 40s counts and below. The product is formulated for sizing of terry and coarser varieties upto 40s count. The binding and elasticity parameters are tuned to suit the demand of speed shuttle-less loons. Sizotex BS is compatible for all types of yarn such as cotton and its blends. The size mix is stable for longer period of time.
Sizotex – BS has an optimal viscosity, which helps in better penetration and gives necessary coating to the yarn, thereby binding the protruding fibers hamper a better weaveability. A 10% paste has a viscosity of 14 to 16 seconds in 50 ml TEXSIZE / ATIRA cup at 90° Celsius
Sizotex – BS has an excellent adhesive strength. It also has very good tackiness, which in turn helps in better binding and improved weaving efficiency. It replaces all synthetic binders like PVA, Acrylic and other polymers.
Sizotex – BS is highly consistent and thereby ensures uniform pick-up. There is no skin formation in size bath. There is also no retro-gradation during overnight storage.
Sizotex – BS forms a strong and flexible film, which in turn provides the necessary elastic warp thread protection. This will ensure better pliability and reduction of loss in elongation. Sizotex – BS film has tough tensile strength and good elasticity, which provides excellent resistance to wear, with better smoothness and fluff binding properties.
Dense constructions are easily woven at optimal size add-on. Lower add-on results in less shedding on the loom.
De-sizing is easy with Sizotex – BS. Sizing can be removed by normal de-sizing procedures. Sizotex – BS is eco-friendly and Bio-degradable.
Preparation of Sizing paste
Cooking is simple with Sizotex – BS. With continuous and preferably vigorous, stirring, the required quantity of Sizotex – BS is added to cold water and stirred for 10 minutes. Then the suspension is cooked at 130 °C / 30 psi and retained for 15 minutes, before transferring to the storage. Sizotex – BS is also suitable for atmospheric cooking.
