SPECIALITY STARCH PRODUCT FOR SPECIAL YARNS
Sizotex – PCV is a product specially designed to size blends of polyester cotton, polyester viscose and other such delicate fibres. The product is formulated to carry necessary ingredients required for the sizing of the above sorts. The optimal binding and flexibility of the sized yarn helps in a smoother and efficient performance of the sized beam in the new age looms. The add-on can be considerably reduced compared to the conventional size preparations. This in turn helps the beam to achieve higher efficiency with a lesser add-on, which is good to the latest high speed looms. The size mix remains stable for a longer period of time.
Sizotex – PCV has an optimal viscosity, which helps in better penetration and gives necessary coating to the yarn, thereby binding the protruding fibres which hamper a better weaveability. A 10% paste has a viscosity of 14 to 16 seconds in 50 ml TEXSIZE / ATIRA cup at 90°C.
Sizotex – PCV 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 – PCV 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 – PCV 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 – PCV 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 PCV. Sizing can be removed by normal de-sizing procedures. SIZOTEX PCV is eco-friendly and Bio-degradable.
Preparation of Sizing paste
Cooking is simple with Sizotex -PCV. With continuous and preferably vigorous stirring, the required quantity of Sizotex – PCV 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-PCV is also suitable for atmospheric cooking.
