SPECIALITY STARCH PRODUCT FOR SUPERFINE COUNTS
Sizotex – SF is a highly modified and formulated product, free from PVA and other synthetics. It is a revolutionary “first-of-its-kind” product that is suitable to size 100’s and above counts, without the use of any synthetics. The product is incorporated with necessary ingredients required for the sizing of 100s counts and allied sorts. The good binding and flexibility of the yarn sized with “Sizotex – SF” helps in smoother and efficient performance of the sized beam in the new age looms. An optimum add-on is necessary and 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. Sizotex – SF is compatible for all type of yarn such as cotton and its blends. The size mix remains stable for a longer period of time.
Sizotex – SF has a low viscosity, which helps in better penetration and gives necessary coating to the yarn, thereby binding the protruding fibers to facilitate a better weaveability. A 10% paste has a viscosity of 6 to 8 seconds in 50 ml TEXSIZE / ATIRA cup at 90⁰C.
Sizotex – SF 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 synthetic polymers also.
Sizotex – SF 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.
Dense constructions are easily woven to optimal size add-on. Lower add-on than conventional size preparation results in less shedding on the loom.
Sizotex – SF 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 – SF film has tough tensile strength and good elasticity, which provides excellent resistance to wear, with better smoothness and fluff binding properties.
Preparation of Sizing paste
Cooking is simple with Sizotex – SF. With continuous and preferably vigorous stirring, the required quantity of Sizotex – SF 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 SF is also suitable for atmospheric cooking.
De-sizing is easy with Sizotex-SF. Sizing can be removed easily by normal de-sizing procedures. Sizotex – SF is eco-friendly and bio-degradable.
