A READY TO USE PRODUCT FOR WARP SIZING
Sizotex – HC is a premium grade “PVA free “Single Shot” Sizing product. Sizotex HC is ideally suitable for finer counts, with higher thread counts, to be woven in high speed shuttle less looms. Sizotex HC is ideally suitable for sizing 80s counts and its ranges. It works with low add-on and provides good binging and flexibility to the sized yarn. The product is “GOTS” approved.
Sizotex – HC 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 Sizotex – HC is strong and flexible, thereby offering a high abrasion resistance of the sized yarn. This helps in smoother performance of the beam at the loom and ensures less end breaks. Sizotex – HC gives good paste stability which ultimately provides uniform sizing.
Sizotex – HC 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 12 to 14 seconds in 50 ml TEXSIZE / ATIRA cup at 90⁰C
Sizotex – HC has an excellent adhesion property. The high tackiness in Sizotex – HC helps in better binding and improvement in weaving efficiency in high speed shuttle less looms. Sizotex – HC has very good tackiness which contributes in better binding and provides the optimum elastic warp thread protection.
Sizotex – HC is highly consistent, which in turn helps in uniform size pick-up. A 15% paste remains consistent on overnight storage and there is no gel formation or thinning of paste.
Sizotex – HC has an excellent film forming property. The film formed by Sizotex – HC 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 Sizotex – HC is sprinkled
to cold water in the cooker/pre-mixer. This product is ideally suitable for both atmospheric and pressure cookers. The suspension is cooked at 95°C and retained for 30 mts with same temperature for atmospheric cooker and for pressure cooker the same has be cooked at 130°C /30psi and retained for 10mts, before transferring to storage.
Sizotex – HC is formulated to be used alone without any additives. This product can be applied to all counts of cotton yarn and Polyester-Cotton blends /to achieve maximum efficiency at loom shed.
