MODIFIED STARCHES - FOR ALL FIBERS

ACHISIZE 130

Sizing for cotton, viscose staple, acrylic fibres, wool and their blends with polyester. The plasticity of the film guarantees optimal weaving performance with good adhesion and cohesion characteristics. The wires treated with ACHISIZE 130 have a good resistance to mechanical abrasion and tensile forces.

ACHISIZE C 60

Sizing that has been studied as a basic component of the recipe for sizing 100% cotton, warps in staple viscose, acrylic fibres, wool and their blends with polyester. ACHISIZE C 60 solutions are homogeneous and stable and do not form gels even after a long period of time. The treated threads have a particular resistance to mechanical abrasion and tensile forces.

ACHISIZE E 50

The product was designed as a basic component in the recipe for sizing 100% cotton fibres, warps of viscose staple, acrylic fibres, wool and their blends with polyester. The beams sized with this product have good resistance to mechanical abrasion and tensile forces. The plasticity of the film ensures optimum weaving performance with good adhesion and cohesion characteristics to various size pick-ups.

GOTS 6.0

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