Polyester pre-treatment is a very specialised processing technique. For this purpose Brugman has developed two specific ranges: a continuous desizing/scouring range and a continuous weight reduction range.
The pre-treated silk-like polyester or cotton/polyester fabric has several unique features. It gives a silk-like handle, a silk-like look and a unique drape. The electrostatic effect is minimized, the hydrophilic properties are optimized and the fabric becomes breathable. Subsequent dyeing or printing gives brighter colours and a substantially higher colour yield.
Continuous pre-treatment comes to its full potential at production quantities over 1000 m/hr. High production efficiency is obtained: handling and consumption figures are drastically reduced. Continuous processing is essential for high quality results during pre-treatment.
The Brugman PES pre-treatment range has the following characteristics:
- low fabric tension
- creasefree running
- custom made dosing systems
- high efficiency due to high reaction temperature
- uniform impregnating and weight reduction
- excellent washing efficiency (desizing/scouring)
- extremely sturdy construction
- minimal maintenance
