POLYESTER SPINNING

AVIFIL PE 646

High concentration spin finish developed for medium-fine counts of Polyester POY intended for texturing on high-speed machines. Leaves minimal residue in texturizing ovens. It is characterized by an excellent antistatic protection.

AVIFIL PES 303

Spin finish developed for medium-fine counts of Polyester POY intended for texturing on high-speed machines. Leaves minimal residue in texturizing ovens. It is characterized by an excellent antistatic protection.

AVIFIL TFD 94

Spin finish expressly designed for medium-fine counts of Polyamide 6 and 6.6 designet to HT (high tenacity) and in particular for the most modern FOY processes with high temperature godets. It is characterized by the optimal balance of friction F/F and the low coefficient of friction F/M dynamic. The product has excellent antistatic protection and helps the good cohesion between the filaments facilitating the formation of the bobbin.

AVIFIL TWDS

Spin finish expressly studied for smooth polyester yarn spun in POY, FDY with subsequent drawing-warping-sizing. Recommended when an excellent compatibility with polyester and/or acrylic sizes is required, it can satisfy the entire range of deniers.

TECHSPIN PES 529

Spin finish for polyester staple spinning, it is best used on Compact plants, in particular for those fed mainly with regenerated polymer coming from the recycling of by-products, recycled materials and flakes of post-consumer PET bottles. Gives a soft hand to the treated staple.

TECHSPIN PES 70 L

Spin finish for short spinning plants, in particular on those fed mainly with regenerated polymer coming from the recycling of by-products, recycled materials and flakes of post-consumer PET bottles. It is characterized by low F/M friction and medium-high F/F friction. The product guarantees good inter-fibre cohesion and good thermal stability. It has excellent antistatic power.

TECHSPIN PES 77

Spin finish for polyester staple spinning, it is best used on Compact plants, in particular for those fed mainly with regenerated polymer coming from the recycling of by-products, recycled materials and flakes of post-consumer PET bottles. Gives a cracking hand to the treated staple.
