CARBOXIMETHYL CELLULOSE - FOR ALL FIBERS

ACHISIZE 3S

First quality CMC-based sizing agent for cotton, cotton / polyester, viscose / polyester yarns, etc., while in the case of synthetic fibres we recommend adding a small part of ACHISIZE F 170. With reduced percentages, it gives excellent results even on twisted yarns. The solution, fluid and unalterable, is characterized by a strong penetration, which allows the formation of an elastic film resistant to all the typical stresses of weaving.

ACHISIZE I4

First quality sizing for cotton, viscose and blended yarns, as well as for wool, both carded and combed. At low percentages, it gives excellent results even on twisted yarns. In blends with synthetic fibres, the addition of a small part of ACHISIZE F 170 is recommended. Thanks to its strong penetration, it allows the formation of an elastic film resistant to all the stresses of weaving.

GOTS 6.0 ZDHC LEVEL 3 INDITEX A A A

Complete range of products for textile sizing, which improves the resistance of the warp threads during the weaving process.
