Textile Auxiliary Chemicals for Multiple Uses
The textile industry uses a whole world of textile auxiliary chemicals in different processing steps. This blog explains about some chemicals that play a significant role in the following processes:
- Dying and printing
- Finishing and sizing processes.
Washing off agents
These chemicals are used for the removal of hydrolyzed dyes before sending the fabrics to the coloring process.
These compounds increase the washing and crocking fastness also.
Acrylic copolymers get dissolved in cold water. They are good resistant of electrolytes and alkalis which are commonly used in the dying process. The polymers are compatible with mild cationic alkaline also.
These multi-functional auxiliary chemicals are useful in all stages of the dying process.
Defoamer is used in a wide variety of industrial applications including textile dyes manufacturing process. A few generic uses of defoamers are in the leather finishing process, petroleum refining, fermentation process, latex processing and so on.
As far as the textile industry is concerned, a defoaming agent is used when foam causes an intense problem in the process.
A defoamer minimizes the possibility of contamination due to its inert nature. Also, it is required in small quantity.
When it is added to the mixing tank in a small quantity when the batch is prepared, it reduces the foam formation. It is far more efficient than breaking the foam which is already formed.
It makes the fabric smooth and soft. To achieve the best softening characteristics, it is essential that the chemical compounds are of the most excellent category.
The polyethylene emulsion softener is a non-ionic softener which offers superb luster and shines to the fabric. Since it is free from any contaminants, the fabric quality remains intact.
Transparent Polyethylene Emulsion is considered the ideal softener because it improves the tear strength also, not just softens the fabric.
This translucent, non-ionic white emulsion makes the fabric shrink proof and crease resistant. It is dispersible in water and offers compatibility with anionic and cationic reagents both. The benefits are optimum lubrication and softening of fabric and improvement in the strength of the fabric.
PE softeners are useful in making cotton, linen, rayon fabrics and synthetic yarns.
Cationic Polyethylene Emulsion lubricates and softens the fabric. They are used in textile industries to enhance the tarnishing resistance and scratch resistance.
Since they are compatible with a wide range of pH values, their applicability is quite high. Another important use is to enhance abrasion resistance.
