The sizing step allows protection of the yarn before the weaving step, improving the loom efficiency and preventing breakage of the yarn.
SNF has developed an innovative range of synthetic polymers designed for the sizing application to ensure:
- No dust observed during individual yarn separation
- Yarns are extremely soft on the surface reducing breaks and improving the weaving efficiency
- Desizing: easier to remove as polymers are water-soluble
- After Desizing, our polymers can also be recycled
These polymers can work alone or are blended with other sizing products such as starch, polyester resins, etc.
